Albino Alligator + other herp pics!

Another trip to the zoo this wknd; we stuck to the "Herpaquarium" this trip. They did have a few turtle/fish tanks, but none that yielded any pics worth mention...

That family season pass sure is paying off this year!




The Louisville Zoo has been bragging about this guy for months now. I finally got the chance to go see him last weekend... I just wish I could have gotten closer and a better angle for the pic. :|




IIRC, this guy was called a 'Panther Chameleon' - thanks for the confirmation, Jermz79! : grin : Regardless, his colors were awesome and he was nice and close, just waiting for me to get his pic.




Not sure about this snake - I'm fairly sure the zoo had it listed as a Copperhead, but it looks like no Copperheads I've ever seen a pic of... still, a gorgeous snake.




Close up of his head...




I can recall what type of snake this is at all, but I love this pic - the pose, the color, the look in it's eyes... :p

I actually didn't see him move at all while I was there - he looked quite fake, like a very large plastic alligator toy or somesuch...

If I'd thought he as nice, I probably would have hopped into his home and gotten a face shot.

Nice pics cJw !!!

The picture of the lizard you believe was a "panther iguana" ... you were close, I believe it is a "panther chameleon"!!! Very cool little guy, I used to have a pair! Awesome creatures!!!

I'm sure he wouldn't do anything to harm you. Maybe you can get us a face shot just make sure he's smiling.

virus - no, the Lou zoo doesn't have anything like an aquarium, but they do have a few tanks with turtles/fish in 'em, and one whole tank (not very big @ all) devoted to 'Bucktooth Tetras', for some reason.



The Bucktooth Tetra (They were about 5-6" in the tank I saw)


Tiger - why don't you come visit and take the pic for me; I like the use of my hands.

About how big was he? He looks small in the picture. I would think they are rare I've never seen an albino aligator.

He was about 5-6' long (2.5-3m)... so I would assume he's fairly young. I don't remember hearing about him before last year, so I think the Lou Zoo got him around then.

I wouldn't guess he's much older that 1-1.5 years - if Toirtis ever stops by this thread, he can probably tell us to the week how old this 'gator is.
