The reptile exhibit had only been open a few weeks, and Iris was already regretting moving into the apartment so soon. It was still insanely busy and so many things had been going wrong, it really had been one problem after another. First the heat lamps had busted one after another thanks to a genius who ordered and plugged in the wrong heat lamps. Then she had bought new ones from every pet store in town as an emergency but had put in light bulbs that were of too high a wattage. That equaled more blow outs. After all that had been settled, there had been too many people allowed into the exhibit at once, terrifying the animals. Thankfully today everything had been going well so far, allowing Iris to walk around with the guests for a bit.
Dressed in a khaki button down shirt with the Santa Ana Zoo logo on it and a pair of black dress pants, Iris slowly walked around. She always expected people to stop her and ask questions like they did other employees, but interestingly enough no one seemed to even notice her unless she was right in their face. She figured it was the lack of lights in the exhibit, it was rather dim. This worked for her at times, because she could observe the guests observing the animals. She came across someone who was staring at the snake necked turtle tank in complete awe and watched him for a minute. Certainly they were strange animals with their ridiculously long snake like necks. When he hadn't left the tank after a moment or two, she approached him. Often when iris approaches someone, she startles them, seeming to appear out of nowhere, so she tried to not do that this time. "They are rather interesting aren't they? They're from eastern Australia."
