Wow!--Reptile Weekend was fantastic! We had nearly 4,000 visitors (3,999 to be exact) over three days that came to explore the exotic reptiles displayed by several guest exhibitors. Since I was working most of the weekend in our Planetarium, I didn't get a chance to photograph everyone--but my friend, Judy Triska in our Marketing Department captured some great photos which you can see on our VLM Facebook page. I did, however, stop by and talk to the great folks from VIIPER (Virginian's Interested In Protecting Every Reptile) and also to Jimmy Kuhn and his crew who run IguanaFIRST, a local iguana rescue organization. So, if you missed out on this weekend, this blog is for you--especially for my readers in distant lands. To date, I've had readers from 64 countries--I'm honored, and thank you for reading my blog!
In the tradition of my other "Guess Who" blogs, can you guess what reptile guests we saw? Check out these armor-like scales:
Ready for the answers? The first photo showed the scales of an African spur-footed tortoise, kindly loaned to us for the weekend by our amazingly talented and very dedicated Vet Tech, Linda Addison--thanks Linda!
