Some Ball Pythons from NARBC Tinley Park. It was a great show!

I'm super excited. I am going to my first reptile convention tomorrow. I've never been to one before. Any tips on how to tackle one?

The biggest piece of advice I have is if you can’t come home with a reptile, hide your wallet from yourself :P There are so many beautiful animals at reptile shows and its sooooo hard to not come home with one! If you do plan on getting one, before purchasing do a little research on the breeder whom you are interested in purchasing from :) While the reptile might look perfectly healthy on the outside, they could have some underlying problems so it is always good to double check the reputation of the breeder. Be sure to bring your camera as well to get as many pictures as possible :) Other than that, drink lots of water and don’t forget to eat either! In all the excitement it is easy to forget to take care of yourself :)
