    Three different Knob-tail gecko species. These little guys are natives of the deserts of Australia.

    A Giant gecko. It has the distinction of being not only the worlds biggest gecko species—I'd still consider this one a baby—but also being the only species of rhacodactylus gecko available in the pet trade that I haven't kept!

    Not entirely sure on the species of this gecko, there are several in its family that look similar

    Painted Dragons, native to Asia

    Argentine black and white tegu. Very intelligent lizard, probably on par with most dogs in terms of brain capacity.

    A big leopard tortoise. Bit this guy and the tegu were there the other times I've gone. This tortoise is a native of Africa.

    Axolotl. This is a fascinating salamander! They're in the same family as the tiger salamander. However, unlike its relatives, it never grows out of the larval (tadpole) stage. Therefor it rarely ventures from water and breathes mostly with gills, although they do have lungs.

    Two races of the Rainbow boa (epicrates cenchria) the first is the Brazilian subspecies, easily the most beautiful. The second is the Colombian. They also had he Venezuelan subspecies there, somewhat a mixture between the two.

    The gopher snake—probably familiar to those living in the Eastern US and Southern Ontario.

    The Western Hognose snake. A native of my Province (Manitoba). Hognoses are curious in the fact that, rather than fight or run away as most snakes would do, when threatened they play dead.

    Another manitoba native—the Plains Garter snake. Manitoba is famous for the Narcisse snake dens, where garter snakes of both species (the other being the more common Red-sided) emerge in thousands to mate after the spring thaw. This is the largest gathering of reptiles in the world!

    I know this one isn't a reptile or amphibian, but it was a nice little reminder of my days volunteering at the wildlife shelter, where I would often work with owls of various species. The burrowing owl of course is an endangered species in manitoba.

    cool! I like the tortoise, interesting markings on it. that salamander sounds pretty interesting too, I've never heard of it.

    good looking burrowing owl, they spend spring/summer around here for nesting so I get to see them fairly often, but they migrate between the western US and south America. they're hilarious to watch very expressive and comical. the problem with them around here is they live in burrows under ground and the general public don't know how to act or identify their alarm calls, so they will just walk right up to their nests, or not notice them and walk over them, etc. but they're a very beloved species so people want to see them but don't know how to treat them and they're literally being loved to death. our populations of them are dropping at least in the higher traffic areas.

    Haha snakes are my thing. Not for everyone though!

    But hey, if we didn't have snakes everyone would have a rodent problem!

    I don't mind snakes, I'm not scared of them or anything. Raptors are the same way, without them and snakes we'd all be over run with rodents
