(Victor Valley)– Ever wonder why people choose to keep snakes, lizards, turtles, frogs or spiders as pets? They are not nearly as affectionate as Fido or even Whiskers, so what kind of satisfaction does having exotic pets bring to its owner? Now is the time to find out at the Reptile Super Show which will be at the Pomona Fairplex on August 10-11.
Caring for a reptile is considered much easier than having a dog or a cat, but it does bring its own unique challenges. With so many different species from just as many environments, it is important to get the right set up for your Bearded Dragon, which will require a completely different set up than a Savannah Monitor or a Leopard Gecko. At the Reptile Super Show, get expert advice from the 100’s of vendors who will be able to answer your questions and provide your reptile’s every need.
Sponsored by reptile keeper favorites like Zoo Med and Exo Terra, the Reptile Super Show is sure to educate and be an exciting experience for the whole family. Get up close and personal with various snakes, lizards and amphibians. Find out what snakes and lizards actually feel like or the difference between Jacksons Chameleons and Panther Chameleons. Do you know what a Uromastyx is? Have you ever seen a Monkey Tree Frog walk?
The Reptile Super Show is also a great one-stop shop for people who already have reptiles. Whether you are in the market for a bigger terrarium for your lizard or need more hiding places for your snake, you are sure to find what you need from custom made tanks to large pieces of grapevine. If you want to stock up on feeders or start colonies of your own, the Reptile Super Show is a great place to save money or get tips of breeding your own.
Reptile Super Show hours are Saturday 10am – 6pm and Sunday 11am-5pm at the Pomona Fairplex, Los Angeles County Fairgrounds at 1101 W McKinley Ave, Pomona, CA 91768. Adults are $14. Children 12 and under are $9.
