    Yeah, I realized that. I'll edit it, thanks.

    Hopefully you'll go! What's on your list?

    Everything! Lol. It's my first expo, but I'm going to looking at beardies, so when I get the time to build another enclosure I can get a female, and I'm looking for a pac man frog to put in my ten gallon tank. Oh and I'm probably gonna bring some dubias home for Lucky.

    Woohoo! Lucky will love the roaches.

    I hope so! My plan is to get a colony going once I move to Fort Collins.

    IF ONLY we had reptile expos here! That sounds like an amazing selection and even if you're not looking for a new scaly friend you can go meet other likeminded individuals. Have fun you guys!

    Thanks, Anna. I wish there were more club and group stuff, but unfortunately there is little of that. Most people there are just worried about their own shopping.

    College. It's the only college in state to offer zoology as a major. >.<*
    I do wish there were more reptile stuff in Colorado, but there isn't and it's very saddening cause we have some native species that are gorgeous.

    That's cool! Enjoy college!

    There are some great field herping clubs here, but you have to go out of your way to find them. They aren't very good in the advertising department.

    I would love to go field herping, but I always have the luck of stumbling onto rattlers.

    We only find rattlers when we're not looking for them. Every time we do look for them, we come home disappointed. Hubby volunteers to help safely and humanely remove them from people's houses and what not, so we never go anywhere without a good snake kit.

    It's ridiculous how many rattlers are in this natural park, but then again, it's perfect for them. I get a good giggle whenever I hear people freak out about a snake that's not even on the trail. Just leave the snake alone for Pete's sake. It's like when people spot a bear in the nieghborhood. they have to make a scene.

    I'm scared of bears.

    Really? I've had so many in my yard and seen so many in the wild they don't bother me. It just bugs me when a woman is driving around with her blinkers on telling everyone there's a bear and that she hoped the DOW will put it down. Did she not see those tall pointy things called mountains? Let alone the bear didn't do anything besides walk across the street.

    Yeah, that's a little bit of an over kill. Thankfully I've never run into a wild bear (knock on wood), but they terrify me. I'm afraid of bears, bees (wasps and hornets, too), fish, and centipedes.

    If I see a bear, I turn the other way! My one fear when camping.

    I wish I could go to the Expo, but I moved up our snowboarding trip to Steamboat and now we're leaving Friday. I will definitely go to the one in May. Maybe I'll actually be able to put some faces with the names on here.

    Also @ToriH I live near Fort Collins. Get all of your supplies online or elsewhere - the shops here don't have much for herps. D&G Pets has some nice setups, but I've been in there a few times and no one knows anything about their animals. They are an aquarium shop that happens to sell reptile stuff. Some of the PetCo people are knowledgeable, but the PetSmart people gave advice that would have killed my salamander had it been followed. Just a little FYI...

    At the expo, are there good deals on equipment/accessories or just animals? Never been to one, but am excited to take my wife and kids to the next one. Do you go to all of them?

    EDIT: My wife is afraid something might bite her...should she be worried?
