sign animaya - free ranging herptofauna - great sign
Did you yourself saw some reptilians and amphibians on the grounds of the zoo carlos55 ?
I saw green iguanas and spiny tailed iguanas,but not the rare endemic yucatan iguana. i also saw quick basilisks. No snakes,though.
Here is rough translation of the sign for zoofans that do not have the good fortune to read spanish.
