I went to my first reptile expo today! It was a smaller one, a first for our city I believe. It wasn’t that big but there were a lot of gorgeous animals and it’s always nice talking reptiles. Redding Reptile Expo
An important sign at the expo: “Please be aware that these cages are NOT the full time residences of these animals, they are in the smaller containers so that they might be transported here and put on display for your close up viewing.”
Reptile expos aren’t just for buying and selling. There’s a lot you can learn at one and I think it’s great they had an adult Burm (15'8") there for people to see what those pretty little babies grow up like. Seeing these animals up close promotes responsible ownership- hearing “they get big” and seeing one for yourself are two very different things! Remember when you see show pictures: those small spaces are NOT their homes. They’re just temporary space.
And the icing on the cake, and my fiances favorite part, red eye crocodile skinks! A breeding pair too. Both were CBB as well which is awesome too bad they were already sold before they were brought to the expo
