Default The Eden Project

Took myself off here today, worth a visit. Took loads of pics trying out my SLR but mainly of flowers (of course....) Anyhows, spotted this amonst the foilage (taken with iPhone4 as my SLR was misting up for the first 10 mins or so, until the temps stabilsed):



Didn't see any other wildlife in there, apart from UK birds and insects. Does anyone know what else lives in there? I couldn't find any info...

Anoles both Green & Brown and Tree Frogs were introduced into the domes to protect the plants from pests and diseases. For the same reason tropical birds were introduced to control the airborne insects.
Froggies live in the canopy so hard to spot

It was a good day out. Passed a few hours at least. I've working in the South West for the last month and as I usually finish work by lunch at the latest (usually finish around 10.00 Hrs, I don't start til 09.00Hrs either ) so it was something to pass the time.

I'm turning into a proper little tourist. So far I've been to Newquay Zoo, aquariums in both Newquay and Plymouth, Land's End & a couple of herping trips; to name but a few. Beats sitting in the hotel room masturbating, although that's quite enjoyable too

I would of thought with your reputation you'd know the difference between a local bird and one more exotic - at the end of the day though they all taste quite like chicken

Side Note - It was Newquay Zoo that bred and supplied the Anoles & Tree Froggies to the Eden Project.
