In this video we are feeding our Legless Lizard a roach and yes it’s a lizard and not a snake. Legless lizards are often confused as snakes, but they have characteristics that differ from snakes. First off legless lizards don’t have the flat, forked tongue like snakes do. They also have noticeable ears, whereas snakes do not. Legless lizards can also drop their tail if they feel threatened.
The Cobalt Blue Tarantula is one of the most aggressive species of tarantulas on Earth. Unlike, most tarantulas the Cobalt Blue can’t flick the hairs on their abdomen at predators. Its only defense against predators are its fangs, which can inflict a very painful bite. The blue cobalt tarantula spends most of its time inside a burrow and will venture out at night for food.
Amazon tree boas are an arboreal species of snake, which means they spend most of their life up in the trees. While up in the trees they tend to sit and wait for their prey come by so they can ambush, strike and wrap their body around their prey to suffocate them. They are a non-venomous snake. These species of snake are aggressive and are not the greatest for beginner reptile owners.
