Posing A Question

He almost seems as though he knew I was snapping away with my camera phone, doesn't he?  This was at the Snake Farm in New Braunfels, Texas (motto: if it might kill you, we has it!) in their most recent incarnation of zoo.  This bright guy, and his peacock-y gang, seemed to be content in their little enclosure.  This surprised me.

Housed in the cage directly across from these beautiful birds are two Servils, cats known for eating, well, birds.  And next to that enclosure, are a couple of wolves.  Then there are the hyenas.  And of course, the 14,000 alligators and crocodiles.  In fact, the larger, predatory animals seem to have been arranged to completely surround the succulent birds and lemurs that are housed here.  Certainly, if I were housed in the middle of predators, I would not be so calm about it.  I certainly would not be posing for pictures. 

Or maybe I would, if I looked as good as this guy. 


  1. Maybe he wants to do a James Dean- live fast, die young and leave a good-looking corpse!!! Or maybe he's just oblivious to the danger ...

  2. Maybe his tail feathers have a "help me" sort of message when he opens them?


I welcome comments, but reserve the right to correct your spelling because I am OCD about it!
