HERPETOFAUNA CRISIS!

Herpetofauna Crisis

A sad news hit the zoo community last week : the famed Zoo de Varennes, a small facility specialized in reptiles and amphibians, has closed its doors due to a lack of funds and public's interest toward its scaly collection. The owner, Philippe Carufel, is desperate to relocate the animals in accredited zoos and not private collections. However, it seems the Zoo de Varennes's own zoo association is not able to take in all of the collection.

Philippe is turning toward you, members of RTZI, to help him. He does not care on where the animals goes, as long as it is in a accredited RTZI zoo or aquarium AND if the the facility can prove it can take care of the well-being of the animals.


Here are the rules :
- You must be a member of RTZI to participate, with an active company and zoo or aquarium.
- Each entry may have one or more animals (ex. entry 1 : 1.0 Gharial ; entry 7 : 3.3 Maranon Poison Frogs).
- You can select as many as 3 entries at the same time.
- Yoou tell us here which entry/entries you have selected.
- You must build an exhibit for each entry selected.
- This exhibit must be adapted to the husbandry of the animals in it (no Gharial in a desert-like exhibit).
- If you select two different entries with animals that can cohabitate, you may or may not build only one exhibit (ex. entry 7 : 3.3 Maranon Poison Frogs + entry 11 : 2.0 Red-eyed Frogs in the same exhibit but not Rattlesnake with Newts).
- When the exhibit(s) is/are ready, you must post at least 2 pictures of each exhibit in this topic with the name of the entry you selected and the species concerned.
- To get your animals, your entry must be approved by a RTZI manager. Even if you showcase them in your pictures, they will be yours officially only if a RTZI manager approves it.

We are giving you until February 28 to pick maximum 3 entries aand show pictures. If it is popular, we might go on and try a second round.

Entry #41 and #42 - Herpetofauna crisis!
Fire skink and Giant armored lizard

Hi everyone and welcome back to Wakefield Zoological Gardens, it's been too long! Today we're going to take our path back to one of our old exhibit to see new additions!

Remember this?

Or this?

Exactly, we're returning back to ''Egyptian Temple''! Right next to the path to the actual temple (the building housing weasels and mongooses) we added a row of 2 terrarias housing two interesting african reptile species.

Let's have a look, shall we?

The first exhibit holds 1.2 Fire skink , a beautiful garish-colored red and even yellow lizard species adorning black and white spots . It inhabits tropical forests and savannas of West Africa.

Our next exhibit holds a rhino-like armored species of lizard , very similar to the Sudan plated lizard we've spotted in Rodentia . Our giant armored lizards live here.

All of our species came from the recently closed Zoo de Varennes , and we're glad to show reptiles' diversity to the general public!




Some trees , plants , rocks and scenery items are PU . Please don't ask for them. (Some of the PU downloads are not by me so thanks to the original creator :) ) .

Inspired by Nils and Yukon zoos .

Welcome to the challenge, TheToastinator.

ZTFR : since your animals are already on exhibit and happy in their neww home, it would be a shame to take them away from you. You can keep them. ;)
