Really rad, nothing really new, the new morphs of corns and ball pythons were unbelievable.

best thing i saw was a red targu (may have Spelt it wrong)...

note to self next year bring at least R5000 cash=)

I had a big problem getting my hands on some cash. The $#@ banks close at 11am don't they :evil: And the ATMs have a daily limit of R1000 don't they. :evil: And most of the exhibitors don't have those nice little machines that take credit cards do they :evil: Note to self - take more ready cash to next expo. Fortunately there are ways and means of laying your hands on cash if you are at a casino and determined enough. :D My poor sister and Telgalad had a bit of a wait though while I was procuring the dough. Got me a trio of Asian spitters for R1300 a piece. They are gorgeous. :cool: There was a lot of the usual stuff. I saw the red tegu. It was going for R7000. Was the only one though. There was a single white lipped python for R3900. The SA Reptiles stand had quite a few interesting baby venomous. Some baby red spitters for R2000 each, a few Levantine ( i think that's it) vipers and some nice ammodytes babies from Italy. Some albino monocled cobra babies for R3000 each. There were also urocoans and some other kind of rattler I don't remember - quite an unusual one. Not a lot of morelia. The fancy ball python morphs were there. I love the ones with lots of gold in them (forget what they are called). Chantel couldn't make it but I chatted to Gavin a bit which was nice. :D There were some blood pythons - Borneo short tailed pair for R5000 (still juveniles) and some of the Brongersmai variety (orangish colouring). There was a Kayuadi (?spelling) dwarf retic for around R6500. Some baby spotted pythons and Children's pythons looked interesting for R1200 each. The East Rand Herp Society had a nice stand with some puffies, a green mamba, a rinkhals, a black mamba, a twig snake and a snouted cobra on display. I thought it was cool to see some of our indigenous snakes there.
There were a few exhibitors missing that were at the earlier expo this month. All in all a good day.

Was alright, nothing spectacular. I was rather disapointed when I found out that no one was selling grab sticks.(saved up for a decent pair). Hopefully the prices will drop on sunday. I liked one of Dracos red beardies. They were awesome. This show lacked pythons, BIG TIME. SAREPTILES stand rocked, there were some awesome hots.

Hopefully next year the reptile community can all pull together and do just one show, as I felt that some of the guys that were there last year would have made a huge difference. I unfortunetly had to cut my visit short. (4hours lol). had a call out. Only managed to buy a pair of silver corns, pair snow corns, three more beardies, a pair of normal burms, an albino burm male. And a sh****t load of plants digitherms etc.

I say it was a brilliant expo, thanks to Bushbaby, Bushviper and everyone else involved.
There were some amazing animals that I have never seen before.
For the 1st time I did not buy anything at the expo, well, nothing for myself. I bought a Crested Gecko for my girlfriend. It's her 1st pet and I'm sure the 1st of many.
Once again, well done guys.
