Hi Friends! Do you have an extra-large snake that consumes XL rats (frozen thawed)? I'm reaching out for a friend of the museum that donates frozen feeder animals to us. They have a very large supply of quality XL frozen Rats they are looking to sell. Please PM us for contact info if you are interested. (Photo of Ana D Conda for attention - They've spoiled her to piglets now!)

Ginger, a little Russian tortoise, was just brought in to us and we are rushing her to the emergency vet.

She was hit by a car in the past week or so, and her injuries are significant.

Can you help us with her medical bills? We are going to have significant expenses to try to get her healthy again, and back up on her feet!

Please donate today at https://www. EcoVivarium.org/donate/, here, or on Facebook!

Thank you in advance for supporting Ginger.

Lightening is amazing to see outside - but not when it is a room full of reptiles with brand new lights and heat systems that were just blown when a circuit was popped and turned back on!!!
Is there an electrician (licensed contractor) that will work with a nonprofit on the charges - we need our building looked at - the repairs will be our expense😫
Please phone us at (760)975-9690 - need help as soon as possible.
