Summer of slither…

Snakes and Lizards

The California Academy of Sciences opened a new exhibit last weekend and we exercised our membership privilege to get there early and enjoy it without massive crowds.

Lemon Drop

Lemon Drop is the mascot. This is a photo of a photo because even though we saw Lemon Drop raise his head and slither around, there was too much reflection on the glass of his enclosure for a shot. In the new exhibit itself you are not allowed to take photos, but there were plenty of other snakes around.

and even rainforest snakes

Surrounding Lemon Drop’s abode is this great graphic of just how long he is

And other great things to see:

Of course, there is Claude…

The robotic anaconda from the movie of the same name…

A musical fountain…

A living wall with some of my favorite California native plants…

I truly want to make one of these on the side of my house.
