Reptile Convention

Who would have thought there was such a thing as a reptile convention ?!?!?! Well let me tell you there are some die hard junkies that know a lot about the species and they come from all states just to educate and sell their babies. Because my daughter has fallen in love with wanting a gecko or chameleon of her own soon I thought it would be a good idea to go see what people had to sell and say. W O W , I was not expecting hundreds of vendors and wall to wall people.

There were mostly snakes and when I say snakes every kind of snake. Big, small, poisonous, harmless, rare as they come, you name it, it was there. Then you had some very rare spiders ( since when are they considered a reptile) frogs, toads, geckos, chameleon’s and cute lizards. My daughter was in heaven as I made a ick face to almost everything there. Well the crowd was real and the love for reptiles is strong. I have not been wall to wall like that since Pre-Covid. It was very informative I must say and my daughter thinks she has narrowed her choice down so it was a very well spent afternoon.

  1. That sounds like so much fun! What a nice learning experience! As I was driving to O’Hare this Saturday, I saw a billboard for a Tattoo Convention. It definitely sparked my interest…..what do people do there? Do they learn about the latest technologies? How nice to have a hobby!
