2016 Daytona Reptile Show Wrap Up

Daytona reptile show

Another Daytona Reptile show has come and gone in the blink of an eye and like the past twenty five years it all happened way too fast. This year caught us in a real bad position with less than twenty five minutes to set up five tables of displays and animals but our experienced team put on the hustle and made sure we had everything in the building and on the tables with no time to spare. Once the vehicles were empty and the hall was shut down for the night we took a deep breath and went on to look for our friends and colleagues to get caught up over the last year of reptile happenings.

Turtles and Tortoises for Sale at the Daytona Reptile Show

Once the show started on Saturday morning and the crowd started to file in through the doors there was no time to do anything but meet people and talk reptiles but by the end of the day there was a brief window of opportunity to look around the show and see what was new. There are always surprises at the reptile show and for me the ever expanding selection of turtles and tortoises for sale was a pleasant reminder of what got me started in reptiles many years ago. Besides seeing the many different species and color morphs of captive born turtles and tortoises I got a great bit of joy walking by a table that seemed to be crawling with albino sulcatas. These once rare morph of the popular pet tortoises from Africa have finally become available in numbers and you can be sure that they will find their way onto our site soon.

Geckos and Lizards for Sale at the Daytona Reptile Show

Another crowd favorite at the reptile show is the large variety of geckos and lizards for sale including bearded dragons, leopard and fat tail geckos, crested geckos and the large number of captive born red, blue and albino blue tegus. It’s always nice to see new species and color morphs of established species but knowing that the basics are still sought after shows that there are many new faces getting into the herp hobby all the time. We did get a chance to be placed next to a vendor who had two beautiful caramel albino water monitors on display and by the end of the weekend we decided that there will definitely be one at our facility in the very near future.

Snakes for Sale at the Daytona Reptile Show

Let’s not forget the main reason we attended the show which was to obtain and offer snakes for sale at our table. We had the immense privilege of displaying the first Rainbow ball pythons in the United States and plan on working this ball python color morph into some of the classics like the GHI, the Bamboo and the Bongo Ball Pythons. We also have some great looking Sand Boa and Central American Boa morphs that can be found at xyzReptiles under the Boa category. We hope that you got to enjoy the show and hope to see you at the next one.
