East Bay Vivarium!

When a reptile dies at the East Bay Vivarium, one of the places it goes to is UC Berkeley's Prep Lab! I've prepped a bunch of things from the EBV, but I've never had a chance to visit the vivarium myself until today. There are so many awesome tortoises and snakes! There was this incredible albino snake that had white and pale yellow bands. I forgot to take a picture of it, unfortunately. Here's a tortoise, though!

This poor guy was trying to go under that huge branch...or maybe he was trying to lift it. Anyways, in both cases, he failed. Twice. Yes, he went around the branch, then doubled back and tried again. Talk about perseverance.

I wish I could have a mini tortoise for a pet, but they have salmonella. There's actually a law that says you can't own a turtle/tortoise under 4 inches in length. How unfortunate.

Anyways, the EBV's a great place to go if you want somewhere quiet and relaxing. You guys should definitely go!
