I visited the Henry Doorly zoo in Omaha, NE during thanksgiving break.  It was the coolest zoo ever!  The desert dome had to be the most amazing exibit I have ever seen.  It didn't hurt that they had an awesome collection of Australian herps.  Here were some of the Australian herps they had on display.  If you get a chance, go visit this awesome zoo!
They had some nice rough knobs (Nephrurus amyae) on display
This hatchling amyae was displayed in the nursery
A little bit closer full-body view of the amyae
They had a nice bredli display.  They also had a hatchling male off display that they purchased as a future mate for this female.

Unfortunately, the blackhead python was in shed
The Omaha zoo has one of the three Collets snakes in the country. 
The Mertens monitor display was cool
