    From the Niagara Falls Review:

    Several reptiles seized from a New Brunswick shop, where police say two young boys were strangled by a python, will soon call Safari Niagara home.

    Three dwarf caiman crocodiles are expected to arrive at the Stevensville zoo sometime next week.

    The animals will undergo a 30-day quarantine and then be placed in Safari Niagara’s newly reptile house.

    From the Niagara Falls Review:

    The tropical heat of the Butterfly Conservatory played host to some cold-blooded fun over the weekend.

    The popular Niagara Parks attraction re-opened to the public Saturday after being closed for renovations.

    On the opening day guest list was a menagerie of critters from Little Ray’s Reptile Zoo including a 14-metre-long python, an alligator and a giant snapping turtle.

    Kevin Dungey, known as Caiman Kevin to the audience, hosted a series of interactive shows over the holiday weekend aimed at scientific education and animal awareness.

    “It’s all hands on and interactive,” he said, while holding an albino reticulated python.

    “You just don’t often get a chance to see these animals up close.”
