    trekked across the state this weekend for the annual Press Convention, was a good 8 hour drive even with Darla's and my lead feet. we found some critters "we" decided we couldnt pass up.

    first, ive been wanting to set up a saltwater tank since we bought the new house but its not going to happen for awhile and ive been trying to find a cheaper alternitive to entertain me. was thinking of a cichlid tank until i saw these guys(please excuse the so-so pics, im taking pics throught plastic with a point and shoot camera that doesnt alway focus on what i want)







    next, our lone female sugar glider has been really tweaking out lately. chewing on her tail and such. when Lil' Boy died about 2 years ago she was doing better than ever, for somereason she seemed to be very anti social, unusual for sugar gliders. well while looking for female bettas to go with the males pictured above, we stopped at a small petshop run by a young couple and Darla discovered that they were selling their "retired" breeding pair to make room for a new unrelated pair. they arent terribly old maybe 5(SG's can live to see 15 easily). anyways thee pair was less than what they were asking for a single hand raised youngin and Darla bought them up. they are currently sitting in a 10 gal tank next to lil girls cage. i heard them chatting back and forth last night so hopefully they will get along. prolly start suppervised visits the end of the week. here are pics, not the best cause of shooting through glass plus they are nocturnal and not active till later in the evening

    Nice crown tails.

    I have always wanted some Suger Gliders since I first saw them. Maybe sometime I'll have a house with more room that I could get some.

    Those are awesome bettas. What type are they? The places around here and the normal, look like they are about to die types without them nice tails. I think I might also want a suger glider now. Nice new family members.

    So Rattler...when are you going to open your zoo to the public and start charging admission.

    The fish are beautiful. But I like the sugar gliders better. They are so cute! I hope they perk up your SG. It would be sad for her to be alone.

    You'll have to post some pics once they all get together. Congrats on the growing zoo.

    Errr...whatever happened to the tarrantula idea?
