Las Vegas Invaded by…Reptiles?

15 Oct

Well, they will be invading with help from some humans.  We caught up with Joe and Tyler Stewart of the Las Vegas Reptile Expo happening this weekend 10/16 and 10/17 at the Santa Fe Station Hotel & Casino located at 4949 N. Rancho Dr. Las Vegas,NV.  Tyler and Joe have both been involved with reptiles in one form or another since they were kids and they decided to tap the virtually unknown market of Las Vegas as early as last year when the planning began.

For those unfamiliar with what a reptile expo is it’s basically a place to come and hang out with professional breeders and see their best animals as well as talk to them about the species that they are working.  If you’re in Las Vegas this weekend, you must make a trip by the show to see not only the animals but also the retail vendors who are producing the top of the line products that we are using everyday.  For more information on the expo please click this link and get in contact with these folks.

I almost forgot to mention for those really eager to get a sneak peek there are VIP passes available to make sure that you get that new pet you’ve been wanting.  Besides supporting your local vendors by showing up I would bring a friend who may not know how cool reptiles and amphibians can be.  We’re going to be seeing some of our friends there for sure hope we we make some new ones by having you show up.

Later on we will post slideshows and pics of all the fun we had as well as in depth interviews with some very special guests!

I really wrestled with the best possible way to present this to you.  Basically, if I presented it in its transcribed state, it would be a giant post.  I myself don’t care for reading online so therefore we have given you a link to download the work. We felt we owed it to Dr. Sprackland to protect the work and so put a Creative Commons License on it which is explained below.  Please download this and share it with anyone who owns a reptile and start discussing your opinions in the comments field.  We are all learning here so we’d love to hear your thoughts.
