Since I have been hopelessly tied up with various things in the last year, blogging hasn’t been a priority. For one thing, there are so many great blogs out there, I’d rather read them.
But then I remember that I have so many pictures to share!
I was reminded of this when some of my Tweeps were posting pics of snakes and how much they love them. (Kidding!) Also, I’ve run into a lot of gator stuff this week, as well.
Since I have the King of the Crocs in my collection (I know gators and crocs are different, so tell it to the zoo), I’m just going to jump in and watch y’all squirm!
This crocodile, UTAN, and his reptile buddies live in a low country swamp at a Myrtle Beach zoo known as Alligator Adventures. For some reason I can’t remember–I’m not, in fact, a reptile-loving kind of gal–we visited this tourist trap in September of 2012.
As you can see, I went to work. Hey, I’m not going to be taking reptile pics too often, I hope–like hell.
So enjoy…or something…dear friends. (And look for a dedication to Real Old Housewife near the end–she will hate me for life after she sees it, but mischief is in my Trash DNA.)[Remember you can click on the pics to enlarge them. Double click for extra detail on most pics.]
Caution: the following photos are not for the faint of heart. If you have a snake phobia, go no further. You’ve been warned.
I didn’t get the names of all these snakes. Cause all I really wanted to do was leave. Sorry. (Not really.)
Finally, a familiar killer I never, ever want to see up close in North America:
One last snake, just for Real Old Housewife, who gave me the Flip camera I took this with: it was lunchtime for the Black Mamba.
That was fun, right? [Eek]
There were more fun critters at the park; it’s not all cold blood:
Hope you enjoyed seeing some scary things we don’t commonly encounter in our modern ‘scapes–thank god.
For anyone who has followed my blog, join me in saying farewell to my Kodak camera which expired on another journey I took not long after this beach trip. These will be some of the last pictures taken with my Zwhatever model point-and-shoot. I must say I have missed her while learning how to use my new Canon Rebel DSLR. But the photos will be better as I go, I hope.
I’ll be sifting through one more Kodak batch and then this year’s beach photos to see if there’s anything of interest. Besides the Space Thingies and the Comet and the sink hole…I might find something….
Thanks for dropping by!
