    D'aw eyelash viper making friends with his dartfrog buddies. Why must my fiance insist on not having "dangerous" animals in the house... mind you the vicious killer cat gets a pass.

    Thanks all! I really liked that pic of the eyelash viper with the froggies, pretty cool. I think these are my best herp photos yet!

    Devon, I was pretty careful with the angles I chose, some animals were too hard to take photos of just because I could not get a good angle. I also had some where you could see reflections in the corner but I cropped those out.

    I have to post some pics from the philly flower show so I might put up some more pics in this thread.

    Awesome pics! Not sure what the first un-ID'd rattlesnake is, but the second pic(with two in it) are crotalus molossus, Blacktail Rattlesnake.. Then Chinese Crocodile Lizard, and Madagascar Tree Boa.. I LOVE the pic of the eyelash with two dart frogs.. lol. dont think i've ever seen a display with both things cohabitating before..

    Edited! Thanks!

    I was really happy with the eyelash vipers, whenever I am at a zoo they tend to be facing away from me. Loved getting head shots of them for once.

    I just edited the last few, this is it.

    Eyelash viper again, worse photo:



    King cobra:



    Hosmer's skink. Apparently these are the only ones on display in North America:



    Blacktail again:



    Alligator snapping turtle:



    Some kind of caiman, I do believe that it is a dwarf species:



    Pigmy marmoset:



    Thanks for looking!

    That's a cuvier's dwarf caiman, tiny little guys at 5 feet long. Excellent photos of some very interesting animals. I don't think I've ever seen eyelash vipers and dart frogs displayed in the same enclosure before. Both are gorgeous, though.
