Warsaw 2009: reptiles at the Zoo again

Some photos from my visit to the reptile house in Warsaw Zoo. Not all of them are that good ... please remember that these were all taken through glass. :-) You can see a video from my visit here ... for those of you who may have missed that. :-)

A map turtle in the first enclosure ... this held a number of freshwater turtles of similar size, various sliders and maps and so on, and this one was staying out of the crowd a bit. :-) Soo pretty, I want one ... !!

A gila monster.

A green basilisk. This shot I am soo happy with. Again, remember that this was taken through glass ... and with a compact camera on almost full zoom. Really good shot if I do say so myself. :-)

A yellow anaconda.

Are you lookin' at me?? A Cuban crocodile.

Nile crocodiles ... juveniles, obviously. This facility isn't equipped to house fully grown individuals of this species.

An Amazon milk frog. These critters are so pretty, but they always look so sad. :-) At least that's how they look to me. I wonder what it is that makes me 'read' them that way.

Yellow poison dart frogs.

This toad had buried itself comfortably in the moist substrate.

Another lizzie shot that I'm really happy with. :-)

A radiated tortoise chomping on its dinner.

This Asian river turtle was huge ... the picture doesn't show its size properly, but it was quite impressive.

Hello there ... !! :-D

More photos here.
