Wishlist/Hope to Find at SOS 2013

Postby Primogen » Mon Apr 22, 2013 2:39 pm

So what does everyone hope to find or will be looking for at Expo?

I will be looking for any Asian ratsnakes but hopefully for a pair of Ridleys and Blue beauties.

I was about to post an ad asking the exhibitors to let me know if they're gonna have any of my "target" species for sale.

I'm looking for:

1x West African Gaboon Viper / Rhinocerus Viper - Bitis rhinoceros
1x Rhino Viper / River Jack - Bitis nasicornis
1x male Flat-nose Viper - Trimeresurus puniceus
1x Variable Bush Viper - Atheris squamigera

I may also be keen on some other species if any of my "target" species aren't there, and if they fit into my price range. If any of you guys are exhibiting and will have some of the above, please let me know even if it's first come, first serve.

Nothing as exciting as above but still at odds about getting more corns or maybe getting a ball python/ rainbow boa.

Also keen on some gargoyle or crested geckos.

I am desperately looking for a good looking male RTB. Hope there will be some at the SOS expo.
My buddie got one at the other expo in JHB earlier this year.
One point to any one with a stand at the expo, stock thermostats. We went to every stand there
and no one had.

Thermostats have made the world of difference for me. And everyone I've spoken to also wants them.

Can't wait for the SOS expo.

I'm hoping to see what amazing Boas will be there, but sadly I am broke so cannot buy any. But hey! Eye candy will do ;).

I snapped up the opportunity to get a pair of rhino rats at the last expo, so really not planning on getting anything.
I’ve also already spent way to much on snakes this year but still I always struggle to walk away from an expo empty handed.
If I find a nice ball perhaps... that is after all my addiction. Otherwise a nice blood python.

I am in the market for a nice anery boa male. Every year I promise no more snakes and each year I break that promise. I guess that's why they call it a hobby.

I would also love to get king rats but I don't think they are many in the country if any at all.
