Back from the reptile expo and with my new little one safely stored in quarantine for the time being.
Anyway, this is Carbide! He’s a year old Hogg Island x Hypo Pastel Central American Boa and I love this long spaghetti 🐍💗
The Bermuda petrel (Pterodroma cahow) is commonly known in Bermuda as the cahow, a name derived from its eerie cries. This nocturnal ground-nesting seabird is the national bird of Bermuda and can be found on Bermudian money. It is the second rarest seabird on the planet and a symbol of hope for nature conservation. For 300 years, it was thought to be extinct. The dramatic rediscovery in 1951 of eighteen nesting pairs made this a “Lazarus species”, that is, a species found to be alive after having been considered extinct. A national program to preserve the bird and restore the species has helped increase its numbers, but scientists are still working to enlarge its nesting habitat on the restored Nonsuch Island.
