Bringing back some memories here

Back in the early 80s I donated my 20 ft female to the Pittsburgh zoo to replace this Retic which died. Colossus or was that the Bronx zoo Retic?

Anyway, Bill was very surprised and pleased that when I arrived at the pittsburgh zoo with my girl, which filled a sleeping bag across the back seat of my car, that she was really as large as I had stated. Other " big" retics turned out to be 15 ft max.
I got her in 1975 after I adopted her from my local pet store once i turned 16 and could drive. For two years prior, I would walk over to the store and volunteered to care for her. She had become their Lilly (munsters) hidden in the back as no one would buy her at 15 feet and some customers were afraid of her and or would get angry at the store owners for what she ate- wabbits
