Caesar the Iguana peeking out from the bathroom (while on a roadtrip) - (Iguana iguana)
At the wildlife education facility sometimes we would get hired to do shows in other cities and what not, occasionally this means we get to go on a road trip. I only went to one, a weekend adventure for the Modesto air balloon festival or something. We would do about 5 or 6 (15-20 minute shows) over the weekend at the festival. We brought along: a kinkajou, Caesar the iguana, Gumbo the american alligator (that’s why he’s in a bathtub in that one pic), Pinky the red tail boa, Snow Pea the baby porcupine, Arlo the armadillo, and one of the opossums.
We had made reservations at a pet friendly hotel, we just failed to mention the sort of “pets” we were bringing. All the reptiles stayed in my room, and the mammals in the supervisor’s room because it was super hot and we wanted to keep the temperatures different. We had some fun letting various critters play around the hotel room, and at the fair while it was way too hot for the mammals (we had everyone with ice packs) me and a reptile would go hang out in the grass watching the balloons and talking to people coming along. Caesar was very popular as always because he’s such a stud.
The shows went well, people were excited to learn and interact with our group of critters and it was nice to get away from the compound and have some pure animal time.
