Other creepy, crawly
is my grandson Troy's page. He is nearly 8 and has decided
that snakes, lizards, turtles, and as he says, amphibians are way
much as I dislike creepy, crawly, slimy, and slithery things
like snakes and other reptiles..Here they are for his enjoyment.
This is a coral snake. Beautifully colored but very
deadly. One that you look but don't touch!
is a ribbon snake. Not all that beautiful to look
at. These are not to my knowledge poisonous.
is the rattlesnake. It is prevailant in the U.S.A.
It is also very deadly. It is at least courteous enough to give you
fair warning to keep away!
people keep these snakes for pets. Not for me, thank you!
They could possibly hug you too hard!
That snake is called a Boa Constrictor. They squeeze their prey and
I'm told can swallow small animals and rodents like the rat in one
gulp. They have jaws that are not hinged together to allow this.
deadly snake is the Hooded Cobra.
They are inhabitants of the far east and areas like India. They are
not a snake to take lightly and can strike in the blink of an eye.
is all the snakes I have right now, but as the page grows I'll
be adding more of the various amphibians and reptiles I find as I
surf the web.
are some lizards I picked up as I surfed.
Since I know very little about these creatures I'll let you
determine just exactly what kind they are unless they are
specifically named with the graphic.
is a chamelion. They are known
to change their coloring to match whatever surroundings they
are in. Wouldn't that be a great way to change clothes?
little fella,(uh,gal?) is called a gecko. They are
seen in the desert areas of the southwestern part of the U.S.A.
They also like to eat bugs, yuk, and things like that.
This colorful lizard-like fella
is an Alpine Newt. I don't know a lot about him, but he looks
peaceful enough. He eats insects and plants.
next lizard is one that doesn't look too unfriendly. However,
not all lizards are the sort you'd want to be too friendly with.
You can't always tell just by looking. It's called
an Iguana. As far as I know they are not poisonous.
one looks frightful and I don't know a lot about it, but
if anything else, it makes you think before picking it up.
is a Fire Salamander. These are a type of lizard
too. Rather different looking isn't it. They come in a variety of colors
and sizes. I had a salamander as a youngster and Troy had some
lizards and frogs when he was younger too. The lizards got loose
and ran around the house for a few days before being found.
dividing each page for Troy into separate catagories,
so they can expand along with Troy's interests. I'll be doing
some turtles and perhaps some aligators and crocodiles on a separate page.
Please come back often and follow our pages.
