When threatened, they can drop from a tree into the water and sprint, upright, about 5 feet (1.5 meters) per second across the surface. To accomplish this, they have long toes on their rear feet with fringes of skin that unfurl in the water, increasing surface area. As they rapidly churn their legs, they slap their splayed feet hard against the water, creating a tiny air pocket that keeps them from sinking, provided they maintain their speed. They can move along the surface like this for 15 feet (4.5 meters) or more. When gravity eventually does take over, the basilisk resorts to its excellent swimming skills to continue its flight. Part of the iguana family, green basilisks grow to about 2 feet (61 centimeters) in length, including their long, whip-like tail. Males have distinctive, high crests on their heads and backs, which they use to impress females.


Green, or common, iguanas are among the largest lizards in the Americas, averaging around 6.5 feet (2 meters) long and weighing about 11 pounds (5 kilograms). They are also among the most popular reptile pets in the United States, despite being quite difficult to care for properly. In fact, most captive iguanas die within the first year, and many are either turned loose by their owners or given to reptile rescue groups. The green iguana’s extensive range comprises the rain forests of northern Mexico, Central America, the Caribbean Islands, and southern Brazil. They spend most of their lives in the canopy, descending only infrequently to mate, lay eggs, or change trees. Primarily herbivores, iguanas are active during the day, feeding on leaves, flowers, and fruit. They generally live near water and are excellent swimmers. If threatened, they will leap from a branch, often from great heights, and escape with a splash to the water below. They are also tough enough to land on solid ground from as high as 40 feet (12 meters) and survive. Iguanas' stout build gives them a clumsy look, but they are fast and agile on land. They have strong jaws with razor-sharp teeth and sharp tails, which make up half their body length and can be used as whips to drive off predators. They can also detach their tails if caught and will grow another without permanent damage. Other members of the iguana family include the Fiji Island banded iguana, the desert iguana, and the Galápagos Islands marine iguana. Their appearance, behavior, and endangered status vary from species to species.
Bearded Dragons
Bearded dragons (Pogona spp.), formerly classified in the genus Amphibolurus, are a group of diurnal lizards belonging to the family Agamidae. The genus contains eight species which are all restricted to the continent of Australia. They are smallish to middle sized, heavy-bodied lizards with a quiet and confiding nature. Although at least four of the eight recorded species are bred in captivity in some number, the term "bearded dragon" almost exclusively refers to the Common Bearded dragon (Pogona vitticeps). Captive bred Beardies make fascinating and unusual pets. Terms like "Beardies", "beardeds", "tata dragons" and "lizard of oz" are also frequently used by hobbyists, while some old literature also refers to Bearded dragons as "Jew Lizards" (now better known as the Coastal Bearded dragon). Bearded lizards were also used, but more commonly for P. barbata. The Common Bearded dragon, otherwise known as the Central, Inland or Yellow-headed Bearded dragon, originates from the arid, semi-desert parts of Australia, but today they can be kept in similar captive environments in your home. Within only a few short years these dragons have become one of the most frequently kept and bred of all lizards around the world . As with the other Pogona species, the Inland dragons are known to be calm and curious, each with their own unique personality. Bearded dragons are also very hardy animals and have an incredible reproduction potential. Dragons need a dry habitat to live in, but need plenty of water. Wild Dragons get the majority of their water from licking the dew of plants in the morning. Misting the habitat stimulates this behaviour.For baby's, it is recommended to spray the top of their heads until they stop licking the water up, twice daily. For adults, spray down the habitat 3 times a week.It is also important to spray their vegetables, as they will get the water as they eat. Some Dragons will learn to drink from a dish, so this can be provided. Make sure you change and clean the water dish daily. If you live in a humid area, the water dish can make the humidity levels too high.

Corn Snakes

  Corns do not wrap snugly around one's arm like pythons or kings. They tend to pick a direction and go for it. Although Corn snakes are relatively small in body mass, they are quite strong. Always support the body and give free rein to the head. If the head starts going somewhere it can be gently guided into another direction. Many snakes are nervous when introduced into a new situation with new people and should be given a couple of days to settle down before allowing them to be handled.  

1. Try and make the Tarantulas cage as similar as possible to its natural habitat
2. Tarantulas do not need webs so make sure to provide them with a large sampling of insects, rodents, birds, and lizards.
3. Do not feed your Tarantula more than once per week. Many Tarantulas go for 4 weeks without eating
4. Remove any uneaten food after 5 hours.
5. Keep the temperature of your Tarantula habitat between 70 and 90 degrees F.
6. Use an overhead lamp or heater under the Tarantula tank.
7. Remove all sharp edges from the Tarantula tank
8. Put potting soil in the bottom of your Tarantula tank or use small gravel with a few larger rocks for hiding
9. Put a water dish with a sponge on top into the tank
10. Most Tarantulas can survive in a small area but a 4 gallon fish tank would work better. Too large of a tank can cause stress. The ideal size is 4 times the size of the spider.
11. Use a padded mesh lid for the tank to provide fresh air. Keep this fastened securely

Marmosette Monkeys

Om 'n marmoset te leer om iets nuuts te eet, kan die nuwe kos met Purity babakos gemeng word om hulle so daaraan gewoond te maak. Leer hulle om malvalekkers (marshmallows) te eet as 'n "treat", dit help baie as hulle medikasie moet kry, want die medisyne kan dan in die malvalekker gesit word. Baba-apies moet van 6 weke ouderdom gespeen word van die menslike melkvervanging, en dan al geleer word om ordentlik te eet , dit maak die hele proses baie makliker.
