Hey everyone. I went to the Reptile Show in Hamburg,PA today. It was my first and it was awesome! Venemous species were alowd so there were a ton and i mean a TON of vipers and cobras and rattlesnakes and whatnot,but especially vipers,there were SO many of them. I didnt get any snakes, but maybe next time. I had no intentions of brining an animal home, but i dont think many people who end up leaving with one does. I bought my first tarantula! Actually,i got two,and theyre in a 10 gallon tank,and seperated by a divider. theyre both females name Mary Jane and Mae. Pink Zebras. I also got 2 Emperor Scorpions. I never thought i would ever ever ever have a scorpion as a pet, but then i got suckered into two of them! Theyre actually very nice and dont strike or bite. The tarantulas are also very handleable, but Mae likes to kick the hair of her hiney onto my hand, which causes a wicked itch and sneezing reaction. Mary Jane doesnt do this. I also ended up buying two more Whites Tree Frogs. One is a female who is yet to be named. She is approx 5 inches long,and i got her for only $15. She is CB as well,and had a beautiful lime color. but now shes a dull brown. Hope she switches back. The other Whites is a little itty bitty tiny as heck CB baby blue. He is soooo beautiful. Looks turquoise. So pretty. Paid $25 for him,and got him from regal reptiles. I also came home with 3 sq. feet of coco fiber background for $4!(what a STEAL!) and 3 bricks of Bed a beast for $7. I had such a good day, it was so cool to see all the animals and hear everyones opinions and advice on them. Next time i plan on getitng some Dart Frogs, i learned alot about them today. Well sorry for blabbing, just thought id spread my joy! Ill post pictures of my new babies when i can! I also took some pics and videos at the show.

Hi Sheryl,

Thats rad. I remember my first reptile show, I was 10 and had to run to every booth and look at every animal at least 3 times. The world of invertabrates is a great one, have fun with the tarantulas. You also can't beat the emperors, they are very common but their size is so impressive. Plus you can handle them without worrying about a painful sting. Enjoy the new animals,

I also forgot to mention that i saw some of those Amazon Milk Frogs and let me tell you,they were AMAZING! the guy had a trio,1 male and 2 females for $350. I could never spend that kind of money on frogs, but a man standing next to me did and i told him to promise me hed be back next year with some babies. they were humungous too, atleast 4-5 inches. I saw some glass frogs,REALLY cool. plenty plenty of darts and need those, leopard geckos,need some of them too, haha i need everyhtign i saw,im so happy about the whole day. it was great!
