    This Albino Alligator has to be kept inside or apparently it would get sunburned... :confused: he's only about 3 feet long...

    This guy was yawning/stretching or just showing off, there was no prey around and nobody threatening him... maybe he just didn't like his picture taken... so i took like 10! In some, his jaws are open almost 180 degrees, but i like this one where you can see his eye. maybe some of the snake lovers out there can tell me what it is that he's doing... ;)

    That alligator looks - unreal. Poor thing. It would die in nature, wouldn't it?

    As to the snake ... doenoe!
    I mean: I don't know ...
    ...neither what kind of snake it is
    ...nor what it is doing exactly.

    And I doenoe, erm don't know, whether the pale colour of the eyes indicates that this snake is short of shedding ... he says so about his own snake, i.e. that the next shedding process is imminent when the eyes become so pale for a while.

    Let's hope that my highlighing his name will call him over!?!? ;)

    that alligator is wicked, never seen one before
    And the snake is almost ready to shed, cause the eyes are blue. After a while the eyes turn normal again and then it takes 1 or 2 days before it sheds.
    Was it sitting like that (with the mouth open) for some time or was it just a jawn. Because if it kept its mouth open all the time, it could be sick (respiration something) if it was just a jawn......well, then it was just a yawn (maybe tired of people taking pics of him :p )

    LaFoto -- :lmao:

    sadly, yes, but this zoo specializes in taking care of hurt or rare creatures such as this, and they are really excited to have him so they are making sure he gets taken care of well...

    doenoe -- i guess it was just a yawn, didn't realize snakes yawned, but that's what it looked like, it was a couple of seconds, long enough for me to get about 10 pics at 5 fps ;)

    Raymond, Scoob, Killer - thanks for the comments guys!

    well, snakes do yawn pretty often. Most of the time after dinner (or breakfast, doesnt really matter, as long as they ate something)
    They do that to get their jaws in a good position again..........or something along those lines.
