Dallas Zoo

I went to the Dallas Zoo today. It's a sucky zoo, and it isn't as big as the Fort Worth Zoo (which is 100x better). A few of the animals that they had exibits for weren't even there. But they still had a pretty nice small reptile house with really nice enclosure setups .

stupid guy kept provoking this tropical ratsnake to make it eat the mouse. I mean, c'mon if it doesn't want it it's not hungry... plus that mouse is waaaay too small! Do they just feed them more often or something? Btw, this stupid kid (he was older then me and stupid!) next to me was like "it's not gonna eat it because it's dead", and I was like "no, it's just not hungry, my snakes eat pre-killed and thawed out rats" and he goes "it won't eat it because the mouse is dead." I just walked off.

Tons of picks. I can't imagine what you consider a good zoo. Lots of animals in my opinion. The Cagary zoo used to have a pretty good reptile house, but it has since been torn down. Be thankful you can see that many cool reptiles in one place.

I think that the dallas has some nice looking herp. I get this from what I can see in the pics you have taken there. My favorites are the ones with the snakes.
