I'll be going. Thanks for reminding me about the tickets. I will need to grab a weekend pass. I just need supplies, and possibly a female L. williamsi, but that's not a definite. I'm pretty much at my personally-imposed limit. I want to see what it is like. I have heard Repticons aren't that great, but they are the only shows to be had down here. I just moved from New England where I had access to a few different shows in the Northeast. I'm hoping this lives up to at least the local NY shows I would go to.
Tips for first time shows: bring cash, and set the amount you want to spend. ATMs run out fast, and most places only take cash. Deals may be alluring, but you might end up over your head in commitments. I have been known to max out the ATM limit on my account in the past, and wound up spending into my rent allowance because the deals to be made were very attractive (this was about 10 years ago, and now I only spend what I bring with me). Also, take time to chat with the vendors. Ask a lot of questions and really inspect your animal. Most vendors are good about talking to you, and will not sell an animal out from under you if you are engaging in conversation about it. Some deals may be too good to let go, so if you are serious about buying the animal, and it fits what you are looking for, I would suggest getting it. If you have any hesitations at all, take another spin around the show, but remember where you saw the critter so you can return if you want. If you see a very unique or interesting animal tho, chances are someone will snatch it up before you return (unless it's a huge investment, and then, if it's really valuable, another vendor will have likely gotten "dibs" on it from their pre-show walk).
Message me if you want to meet up and at least say hi in person at the show. I'm always happy to make local herp friends.6.4.7 Rhacodactylus ciliatus, 0.1 Rhacodactylus auriculatus, 2.4 Pareodura picta, 0.1 Gehyra marginata, 0.2 Gekko gekko, 1.0 Lygodactylus williamsi
