Barack Obama is still eight days away from moving into 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, but at 12003 Pico Boulevard, the president elect has already moved in. This West LA location features a mural of Obama palling around with a reptile and sea turtle.

When Fox News' Sean Hannity finds out about this he's going to want to know why this image, which can be seen outside the Fish Reef Reptile shop located at Pico and Westgate, was withheld until after the election. If you knew he was a reptile guy would you have voted for him?

This can't be confirmed but rumor has it that the president-elect met these creatures of the sea the last time he walked on water.
