Visited the Colorado gator farm last weekend which is a TRIP

First playground I’ve seen with an open alligator pit in it

But my favorite part was the tortoises who are basically tanks who expect humans to get out of the way

Apparently people buy these tortoises when they’re small and then discover that they’ll casually bust through walls and knock over furniture

Tanks do not make great pets

Their destructiveness cannot be overestimated  https://www.buzzfeednews.com/article/catferguson/a-reptile-dysfunction 

Plus some kind of Ancient Ones vibe.

“Sulcatas are nearly guaranteed to outlive their owners.”


They say they added the top part of the wall after kids kept playing in the alligator tank
