Pay a visit to Magalies Reptiles and take a selfie with a difference. The reptile protection agency is bringing the ultimate selfie prop for Rand Show visitors ... four heavyweights of the snake world that like nothing better than ‘posssssssing’ for photos with their fans. There’ll be two red-tailed boas, the longest measuring 2.5 m, a 1.6-m-long Dumeril’s boa, and a 1.7-m-long Brazilian rainbow boa, all eager to get likes on Instagram.
Less fun to pose with are the Cantil viper, copperhead viper, and the Christmas tree viper: all venomous and best viewed safely from behind glass.
Rand Show visitors can also see a number of morph corn snakes, Sinaloan milksnakes, and small ball and carpet pythons, as well as a Russian rat snake, anaconda, and Kenyan sand boas. And don’t forget the black Mexican king snake, an albino Californian king snake, and a hognose snake with its upturned snout.
It’s not just about snakes though at the Magalies Reptiles display. Come and meet the four-legged reptiles – leopard geckos, savannah or Bosc monitors and bearded dragons – and find out how all these cold-blooded creatures should be handled and cared for.
