Jay Brewer is fascinated by reptiles. So much so that he frequently employs reptiles as props in his “extreme challenges and adventures.”
Consider caressing alligators and cuddling with huge snakes.
He also operates Prehistoric Pets, a pet store in Fountain Valley, California that specializes in exotic and one-of-a-kind pets such as snakes, lizards, and tortoises.
“Staffed by reptile enthusiasts, where you’ll find everything you need for your reptile or amphibian. We’d love for you to visit us at The Reptile Zoo to see these amazing creatures in person!” Brewer explains on his YouTube page JayPreHistoricPets.
Prehistoric Pets will also bring exotic animals to you with their Jurassic Events van, which delivers reptiles to your parties for petting and photo opportunities.
Brewer also enjoys visiting other zoos.
Brewer went to Blakes Exotic Animal Ranch and Florida Iguana & Tortoise Breeder last year.
It would be an understatement to say he had a nice time.
Brewer appeared to be having a good time.
“This is crazy!” Brewer stated this after feeding two enormous tortoises.
“This is living the life right here,” the employee at Blakes Exotic Animal Ranch said.
Brewer was awestruck by the 104-year-old turtle.
He even gave him a high five.
“Pretty awesome! Check him out,” said Brewer.
According to Britannica, tortoises, also known as testudinids, have elephantine cylindrical hind limbs and feet, as well as high domed shells.
Except for those found in Australia and Antarctica, they are terrestrial species.
There are numerous tortoise species, but one of the most stunning is the gigantic tortoise. There are additional gigantic tortoise subspecies.
This endangered species is native to the Galapagos Islands and the western Indian Ocean. They can weigh up to 700 pounds and have a length of up to 4 feet.
They are among the world’s longest-living animals. They can live for up to 100 years or more on average.
So it’s easy to see why Brewer was so taken with these massive turtles.
He was particularly enthralled by Tank, a 585-pound tortoise.
He also had the opportunity to hand feed them bananas, which they ate peel and all.
“Is this amazing or what?” Brewer asked.
The footage of his trip to the various zoos was released on his YouTube page and has been seen over 29 million times.
