This might just be my favorite picture ever
This is a very high risk photo.
Very nice photo, yes.. but all I imagine in the owner going “lemme just place this leopard gecko on the emerald tree boa that had really big teeth and can kinda swallow it if it decided to do so.”
Just would like to clear some things up…
For my followers who know Zeus (the ETB) they know there was literally 0 risk involved.
For those of you who don’t, Zeus is both physically and mentally disabled. He cannot move fast due to severe spinal deformities and he doesn’t strike at anything. Even when it comes to meal time he won’t strike at the mouse. He needs to be assist fed because he can’t do it himself. Also, Zeus was asleep and his head was so far under the table that even if we wanted to hurt Oddball he wouldn’t be able to.
Thanks for the concern though, I can understand how it seemed risky for those of you who don’t know my snake! You can learn more about him in my Zeus tag.
Awh, the poor babe. I’m glad you clarified though! Thank you! And I’ll definitely spend time learning more about Zeus :)
Lola kept on falling off her stuff as she tries to use her (nonexistent) back feet to cling on rather than her perfectly fine front ones. I took the ramp to her hammock away since its quite a way for her to fall but someone had other idea’s….
She got stuck like this twice and i ended up putting the ramp back in.
As all Knob tailed geckos in the genus Nephrurus (Carphodactylidae), N. vertebralis possess a curious small knob at the end of their tails whose function remains completely unknown.
Like the majority of geckos, this endemic Australian species is nocturnal insectivore. These handsome geckos have very large, puppy dog like, eyes.
Due to the vertebral stripe starting at the base of the head and running along the entire length of its body, N. vertebralis is commonly known as the Midline Knob-tailed gecko.
