Hello! Last week I attended a house tour of Brittany’s zoo in which I watched and took note of the different animal facts and behaviors. First the visitors took much needed time to say hello to the little cat.
Then the crowd turned their attention to the Chameleons. However, first Camille the chameleon needed her medicine first. She has been suffering from a sinus infection since she was given to Brittany. On bad days, her eyes can get so swollen that she can not see. First are her injections for her sinus infection. Then comes her nutrition, which can consist of fruit and smashed up insects to keep her healthy.
Now for the other chameleons they got their lunches, and the visitors got to feed them. Out came the mealworms, it was time for the hungry chameleons to attack!
After lunch time inside, it was taken outside. The turtles were given their mealworms, leaves, and nuggets next. The turtles in the pond don’t usually allow people to get near them, and dive into the water before you get too close. However, sneakily I grabbed a quick picture of the male sunbathing.
There is another female turtle that lives in the pond, however she never lets anyone see her. She hangs out at the bottom, and is actually much larger than the male. It is a misconception that the males are larger, the female turtles usually are. After all of the cuteness the visitors were brought inside to see the baby alligator and snakes. The favorite of the crowd was by far the baby alligator, his feisty behavior did not deter the crowd. All of the visitors enjoyed the tour, and the animals definitely enjoyed all of the attention and food!
