Nope. Mockingbirds a in a completely different family. They will be a more uniform grey with black on the wings, and a much longer tail.

Then I think it's your anole! I've only ever seen two in three summers of fieldwork in Central America. Excellent spot!

Potentially a pentaprion. How high off the ground was this?

Sorry, that picture is of a spider. This is a whipscorpion. They are both arachnids, but that's about it.

Thanks, you're not bad yourself. Oh wait...you meant the snake....

Definitely not a snapper. Based on size and shape and the distribution of the turtles species in TN, you have three choices. Southern Painted Turtle, Pond Slider, and River Cooter.

Aaron and Keith both speak wisdom. Also, you might be able to look online at the zoo's page and find out what species this is. Many zoos have user friendly websites and list what animals they have!
