Trip to the Zoo #2: Reptiles #1

Here are some more pics and vids from my trip to the Zoo featuring this time some of the reptiles.


First up, the Caimans, which look like smaller crocodiles. They are found in Central and South America.
The Emperor Valley Zoo has the Black Caiman (Melanosuchus niger) and the Spectacled Caiman (Caiman crocodilus)

Spot the 5 

Trio of Baby Caimans
My favourite shot of the trio


This little fellow was quite hilarious in his antics. He is the Spot-legged Turtle or Common Galap. You can take a look and see for yourself as he paddles around in his 2cm of water.

These are the African Spurred Tortoise ( I believe).

Check out his spurred shell. Better picture to see the shell of this magnificent creature here.

One year ago I took the above photos of the Tortoise feeding
