Is anyone planning on going to this show? I will be there and hopefully pick up a baby ball python. It would be cool to meet people from this forum there.

Wow, you're from Clarion? I used to live in Kane! :)

I won't make the one they are having this month. But we'll be in PA for the one in July, so I'd like to go to that one.

I didn't even know about it. Thanks for posting this!

Actually, I went to college in Clarion (just graduated!!!) but I'm originally from near Warren, PA. They have one in Pittsburgh every month, and they also have one I think bimonthly in Mars, PA. There is one there on June 10th and I am going to that one too. Here is a link for it: http://www.wparepexpo.com. Enjoy!

Very cool. I had my babies in the Warren hospital, lol!

Have you ever gone to either of these shows? We used to go to a big one in Ohio, can't remember where exactly, it was YEARS ago.

I've never been to the Pittsburgh show but I'd like to go at some point this summer. It's about 2 hours from me.

The big show in Ohio is in Columbus, btw. There is also one in Cleveland, though it's not as big.

I was born in Warren General too! haha.. I've never been to one, because I don't own any reptiles. But this past fall I got really interested and have been researching and biding my time. Im excited to check this one out.

I may have to try out that Columbus one too. Hmmm..

Columbus is the one we used to go to, thanks tiliqua! It was pretty awesome.
Too bad I won't be there for the one in Mars.

You'll have to let us know how the Pittsburgh one is Russman. If it's nice I'd like to go to it in July. If anyone plans on going to the July 15th one, let me know and maybe we can meet up.

Ok, so I went to the show and it was pretty small (as far as im concerned, and I dont know much). There weren't any blueys there at all. It was mostly snakes, geckos, tarantulas, and chameleons with some scorpions, tegus, monitors, uros, etc. floating about.

I was so mad when i got there because i forgot my stinkin camera. Even though there weren't any BTS, I still would have taken some pictures of the awesome chameleons I saw and some of the cool snakes like the Gaboon Viper. It was pretty cool. Anyway, sorry I didn't get any photos for ya Shelly.. maybe next time.

That sounds like something I would do! I'll know not to bother going to it if it's small. Thanks for the info.

I'd like to find out when the Columbus show is. It was amazing way back when, and that was before herps became popular. I can imagine it's even better now.


Edit: Just found the Columbus show dates: June 2nd, July 14th, August 11th, September 15th, October 27th, November 17th & December 8th.
Avatars are like shoes to me. Even though I can only wear one pair at a time, I always have a closet full!
