    Chelydra serpentia serpentia

    Found this Eastern Snapping Turtle beside the road on my way back from the auto shop today. I HAD to take pictures, of course. He had maybe a 15 inch shell length. Missing an eye and had a nice scar on his head too. Enjoy.

    I think you'll have to be a little more specific, since many, many species of chameleon originate from madagascar, and I'm not aware of a species with this common name. Do you have the scientific name, or another common name?

    Bio-active substrate

    Bio-active substrate

    I loved Gregg Madden's article on bio-active substrate on the Gecko Time blog. (Link for those who haven't read yet: ) I love the idea of keeping reptiles as naturally as possible. I've never liked sterile pristine...
