The Reticulated Python (Python reticulatus), with a maximum recorded length 33 feet, is the longest existing snake species. However, it is slender and usually half as heavy as the Green Anaconda.

The reticulated pythons has complex multi-colored geometric pattern. The back typically has a series of irregular diamond shapes which are flanked by smaller markings with light centers. This species has a wide distribution, variations of size, color, and markings. Two subspecies currently exist,

Attacks are rare, but the species has been responsible for several human fatalities in both the wild and captivity. Those who work with with reticulated pythons often cite an unusual level of intelligence and awareness compared to other species.

The Bronx Zoo, located within the Bronx Park, is the largest metropolitan zoo in the United States, comprising 265 acres of parklands and naturalistic habitats and home to over 4,000 animals. Focused on conservation, it opened on November 8, 1899, with 22 exhibits, 843 animals. The zoo's origins date back to 1895, with the establishment of the New York Zoological Society (NYZS), renamed Wild Conservation Society (WCS) in 1993. Only the outer structure of the World of Reptiles remains much as it was in 1899. With the 1941 opening of African Plains, the Bronx Zoo was one of the first U.S. zoos to move away from cages and exhibit animals in naturalistic habitats.

The Giant Tree Frog (Litoria infrafrenata), also known as the White-lipped Tree Frog, is the largest of all tree frogs. This species is native to the rainforests of New Guinea and northern Australia.

Reaching lengths of over 13cm (5 inches), the Giant Tree Frog can make a standing jump 15 times its body length. That's comparable to a human's broad jump of about 40 feet. Its dorsal surface is usually bright green, although the colour changes depending on the temperature and background, and can be brown. The ventral surface is off-white. The lower lip has a distinctive white stripe (giving this species its name) which continues to the shoulder. There are white stripes on the trailing edges of the lower leg, which may turn pink in the breeding male. The White-lipped Tree Frog has large toe pads, which aid it to climb. The toes are completely webbed, and the hands partially webbed.
