Thanks. We're going to go check it out so I'll report back.Been to a few Repticons and they’re OK. Expect to see mostly ball pythons and leopard geckos. These shows are for breeders and generally torts don’t breed fast enough or in the various color morphs that snakes and lizards do to be as profitable. If they do have torts they’re usually Redfoots and sulcatas, especially in Florida. Daytona breeders expo in mid August is the one to go to.
The repticon I went to was good also. I didn't want to misrepresent repticon shows with my post. I went to the display with the most people around and everyone was handling the sulcatas. As I walked thru there was vendors there that wouldn't let you handle the reptiles. I thought that they were being rude. Even after hearing one of them say no to a little kid. Saying he didn't want any cross contamination. I thought to myself what ever you grouchy man. Now being a little more informed I understand he was just trying to protect his inventory. It was in Melbourne Florida. If it was one of our members. SORRYWe went today and had a good time. My estimate was 60% snakes, 30% lizards and 10% everything else.
One seller had a variety of hatchling tortoises and turtles as well as a few adult yellow foot. They has Leopards ($159), Marginated ($149), Herman's ($149), Elongated ($149), and Red Foot.
A couple other vendors had hatchling and juvenile redfoot and sulcatas.
Equipment was reasonably priced. Fair amount of vendors, and quite a lot of attendees.
It was better than I expected for a small town show.
Admission was $10.

Oh yeah I didn't think about that also. I know when my grandchildren pick up Opo. I get nervous. I finally decided pictures of them with Opo were better next to each other.Not to be mean but I wouldn't let little kids handle my either. Probably no adults either. To much risk IMHO dropping them.
