That feller on the left sometimes goes by the handle Fabio, not so much for his hair, which ain't much, but because of his tendency to strike a pose. The feller on the right is yours truly, Raven Jake.
Fabio is a 15-year-old spectacled caiman who lives in the BioTrek Rainforest at Cal Poly Pomona. I had a nice meeting with the director of the facility, Michael Brown, got to visit with the residents, and generally had a good old time hanging out in the rainforest, playing some indigenous musical instruments and walkin' around looking at stuff.
If you happen to be involved in K-12 education, I can't recommend a school tour through this facility too highly! Far as I know, it's the only one of it's kind south of Montreal, and the California ethnobotany garden can't be beat either.
