Scott Petersen, aka "reptileman", opens his Serpentarium to visitors 365 days a year. Have a look at some of his snakes, lizards, invertebrates, crocodilians, and turtles, and kids blythely handling them. reptileman recommends that you also visit Zach's Lizard Land, where you can meet Jerky, Buddy, and Cola, all of whom are lizards.

This sounds pretty cool. Someone told me about it a few weeks ago and I've been meaning to go visit.

Vancouver BC has a bug zoo which is also worth a trip.

Not to be confused with "the Lizardman".

If you're in the area it's fun diversion. I like the fact that they encourage visitors to handle the animals (some of them).

Yikes.
I like the lizards and snakes though. Buddy's good looking.

That lizard man is amazing.

Heh... of all the people a guy named Scott Petersen is gonna be worried about being confused for... well, let's just say I can think of one that comes in ahead of the Lizardman.
