    Default Behind the Scenes at the Houston Zoo Reptile House

    Andrew Godambe was kind enough to give us a tour of the Houston Zoo Reptile House last week. He showed us some of the current research projects. Thanks Andrew! Enjoy the photos.

    Mexican Beaded Lizard (Heloderma horridum)


    Snake-necked Turtle


    Tamaulipan Rock Rattlesnake (Crotalus lepidus morulus)-I'm probably wrong. I know this is a Mexican rock rattlesnake, but I'm not sure of the subspecies. I'm a gecko guy. Gimme a break!

    I tried and tried to get a clear shot of the beaded, but he just wouldn't stay still. Go figure!

    It was me, my wife, and a couple of my friends from the East Texas Herp Society. We spent a couple of hours behind the scenes. It was a real treat!

    Nathan.. great pics. that last rattler is really cool. i dont know anything about any venomus species, so i'd never see that one before. kida reminds me of a greybanded king with a little color shift.

    How many times did I offer, punk? They even gave us all free beaded lizards when we left.
