They are my favourite, too. Especially turtles. They're so beautiful and fascinating and I've always loved them and collected turtle things. My dream is to work with them (which will never happen until we join the EU, since reptiles are prohibited here).
I even identify with turtles, their surrounding shell and tendency to withdraw.
Always been a big fan of reptiles but never owned on. I've no idea why they interest me to be honest. _________________ 'An ideal of total self-sufficiency.

in norwegian "orm" means both "worm" and "snake" slange means "snake", but snake names here go by "worm" or "snok" (which is the same as english "snoop")
the crossed viper is known as "strike worm"
one of a total of 3 snakes encounterable here, +1 leg-less lizard (we call it "steel worm" )
this is the 2nd most common snake, considered harmless, this one exists in southern norway, never seen it
we also have lizards, but im ashamed to admit i dunno which species
theyre all able to hibernate _________________ ''In the world I see - you are stalking elk through the damp canyon forests around the ruins of Rockefeller Center.''
Not the same sort of reptile but a fitting tribute nonetheless. One of the greatest tracks ever made, in my humble opinion.
P.S. if you feel nothing but bemusement/confusion, just ignore. _________________ 'An ideal of total self-sufficiency. That secret smile may be the Buddha's but it is monstrous seen on a baby's face.

Not actually a youtube video, so to see, I think you have to copy and paste to the address box. I volunteer at this zoo. shot this morning, right before I got there. Funny because the Gray Treefrog actually lands on the woman's hand. Also, shots with a Ball Python, Komodo Dragon, and Poison Dart Frogs. (See all four clips from 3.12.12.)
Edit: Just click on it--at least in my browser that worked.
