Saying Goodbye to and old friend “Zig Zag”

November 16th, 2017 | Comments Off on Saying Goodbye to and old friend “Zig Zag” | Posted in Scales And Tails

Zig Zag has been one of our animal ambassadors for well over 10 years.  We finally had to make the decision to put him to rest recently.  We were in contact with Dr. Scott Echols at the time and he was looking for monitor lizards to study for his project. We opted to donate Zig Zag to science to see if we could help further his cause.

Dr. Echols is researching animals and reptiles specifically like crazy.  The medical knowledge base for reptiles is quite small and very little can be done to help most sick reptiles once the reach the point of needing vet care.  Dr. Echols is trying to change that.  Check out the research he has been working on in the Science Friday story that was just released.
