DESERT ROSY BOA EXHIBIT

DESERT ROSY BOA EXHIBIT

      One minor complaint I happened to overhear from one zoo patron, was her dislike of so many exhibits that had below-the-waist viewing; as can be seen in this photo. Which puts the specimen on ground level. Of course, several of the now much larger LAIR displays, have way more vertical space; ground to ceiling in many instances.

      I actually liked that feature about the exhibits. I did find myself crouching in a lot of instances, but seeing the snakes at ground level was a cool experience.

      The one thing that I did not like from the Desert LAIR was the amount of glare caused by the huge skylight, but I could live with that as long as the reptiles get a good amount natural light.

      So Mario, now that you've had the chance to view LAIR up close for yourself, what is you're opinion of it?

      I'll answer this question in David's LAIR review thread.

      As seen in this photo, all of the snake exhibits were huge compared to the inhabitants. Due to this the species count did go down a bit, but I'm glad the zoo went this direction instead of trying to pile small tank after small tank just to have a lot of species.
