Zoo-Zoom, LLC is first and foremost an animal rescue. Most of the animals we take in are owner-surrenders due to various reasons. These two beauties came in from an owner who did everything right but the timing was wrong. We made a few enclosure changes and the bearded dragon already has a foster home lined up to help us alleviate the cost of care. The little tortoise is a baby leopard tortoise and will be staying with us as part of our tortoise herd. Be on the look out for the little one in the near future! #beardeddragon #leopardtortoise #reptilerescue #reptilesofinstagram #ilovemyjob
It is with the heaviest heart that I announce that Butterball our beautiful, precious turkey has passed away. Working with rescues, we face mortality on a regular basis but I haven't hurt this bad loosing an animal in years. The suddenness and unexpected loss has shook me hard. Butterball was always a shining light in my day. Her inquisitive mind got her into trouble but her gentleness with me always got her out of it. What I wouldn't give to hear her pips again. To hold her in my arms, to be able to walk her around PetsMart, or fight her to get in and out of her harness. She was a soul like no other and she will be missed greatly. Our Zoo-Zoom family is hurting, we lost a good one. One of the best.
Here is the before and after of me telling Adrian she's beautiful. Don't forget to tell someone in you're life that they are beautiful too! #bekind #lovethyneighbor #lookthatsmile #brightensomeonesday
Albinism is a naturally occurring genetic mutation characterized by little or no melanin production. While animals in captivity are reproduced for this trait and live long and happy lives, wild animals don't always have the same fate. So much of an animals survival is predicated on if that animal can hide to avoid predators and sticking out as much as Ruby does would make that a daunting task. Now imagine if she was a hatchling at 24 and didn't have the speed or power to defend herself. #foodforthought #albino #albinolavender #reticulatedpython #pythonsofinstagram
This weekend we were contact about this beautiful red tail hawk that was hit by a car. After a thorough vet check, the only signs of injury we could find were possible concussion, a small amount of bleeding in the lungs, and a possible muscle injury in its right hock joint. As soon as the vet cleared the little one for transport, it was brought to Heck Haven in Lake Charles, LA. Rescues like this are what strive to promote as a business. The hawk was injured by a vehicle around 17:00 the night before we picked it up and we didn't get it to the vet until 12:00 the next afternoon. While this is one of the tasks we take on, it is a costly one. For this hawk alone, we have spent $141.51 in vet bills (with many discounts) and $20.00 in gas to get to Lake Charles and back. We strongly encourage you to think about donating to your local wildlife rescues to help ease the financial burden they are often face with. If anyone is interested in helping us cover his bills, please contact us via phone or email to arrange payments. It would help us out a great deal.
We are asking for as many good vibes as we can get for Wally our beloved Sheltopusik. We believe he was non intentionally poisoned by synthetic fertilizers. He's displaying with neurological issues as well as lack of appetite. Hopefully we caught it in time. #prayforwally
Tegus are lovely, aren't they? #dogfood #easymeals #chowdown #socute
Here is our red-eye tree frog enclosure. Tree frogs like to hide on the underside of broad leafy plants during the day so the croton in the middle of the enclosure is perfect for them. This enclosure is still a work in progress as well but once I get the lighting figured out, it should take off growing pretty fast. #redeyedtreefrog #vivarium #makesmesohappy #iwetmyplants
It's safe to say that Rome and I are getting closer. She is actively speaking out my attention and getting really demanding with the pets. #iguana #iguanalove #peopleletmetellyouaboutmybestfriend #longhashtags #lovemylife #iguanasofinstagam
