More random stuff

There is a small population of Red Headed Agamas that lives in the Redlands, south of Miami. They are believed to have descended from individuals who escaped from or were released by local reptile dealers. On the way down to Everglades NP we stopped by their hangout, an old rock wall outside of an elementary school.

This rock is too hot for his toes.

The latest news on the Folke Peterson Wildlife Center is that they will be closing the wildlife hospital tomorrow, by which time all of the patients will be relocated to other centers. However the county donated some money to keep the educational program running, so the education animals will stay. I said my goodbyes to the babies last weekend and still hope that something can be done. There is talk of merging with another wildlife center so we will see what happens.

Feeding time for the blue jays:

Oh my, that Agama is gorgeous. How lovely to be able to look after those baby birds. They're so cute.

That's some amazing reptile the Agama - fascinating markings!

I do hope all the residents will have been re-homed successfully; just so sad the centre had to close :(
