Chameleon Village Reptile Park

brandon gartrell20 and I got the opportunity to help out at the Chameleon Village Reptile Park in Hartebeespoort during these past holidays. I was able to get some shots of quite a few really nice animals. All pictures were taken with an Ipad. Here are a few of them:

Tiger Reticulated Python

I WAS THERE!!!

Well almsot :'( .... Stood in front of the place and I was like nah. Can't be worth that much. I probably saw all the reptiles inside at an expo in any case!! Guess its a step up from the snake park I use to go visit...

Thanks for sharing though :)

Looks like you guys had some fun, always good to see clean cages.

I have to make a plan to check out that O.hannah when I'm in Gauteng again.

You might as well not even lookout for reptile parks with that mentality, haha! I definitely think its worth a visit.

Thanks Justin! It was quite fun, the snakes aren't handled often so some of their 2m Ratsnakes definitely give us a bit of an adrenaline rush haha. The King Cobra is quite impressive indeed. She didn't spread a full on hood while we were there but apparently she does get quite high when you really tick her off.
