It’s Zeb the Duck here again. Mom and I went back to the Denver Zoo.
This time we visited Tropical Discovery. This building within the zoo has fish, snakes, frogs, lizards and the huge Komodo Dragons. It is warm inside, like a tropical forest, so it is perfect for those less than perfect days outside.
I like the frogs. Here is a Mexican Leaf Frog.
These frogs only live in Mexico. The yellow banded dart frog lives in northeast South America.
The snakes were very colorful and not slimy. This McGregor’s Viper lived in the rainforest of the Philippine Islands.
Cobras have hoods on their heads and this suphan cobra thrives in the forests of Thailand.
Be careful if you hike in the forest of West Africa. This green mamba lives there and is deadly.
Lion fish are graceful while swimming.
They appear to have fancy costumes that sway in the water; they are stunning fish.
Before leaving Tropical Discovery, we visited the Komodo dragons, lizards and crocodiles.
The Komodo dragons often grow 10 feet long. When they are hungry, they are capable of killing and eating just about anything.
Tropical Discovery at the Denver Zoo is a fascinating place. I am glad the glass enclosures are strong. Visit www.denverzoo.org for more information.
