the last time i was there they had some invert.dealers,not alot,more reptiles ofcourse lot's of spiders,some scorps,afew centies and that was it,i bought aswell with no problems,permits etc. i'm in fla aswell and fish and game were looking for illegal stuff all threw out the show. it's definitly worth to check it out.
I do plan to go, but I want to make sure the Bugmen turnout is better than last year. I went Saturday and Glades Herp, Theraphosid breeding project and one other small booth with a few slings (I don't remember the name) were there. There were a zillion rept dealers of course. The year before there were lots of dealers Scott Crowe, Krazy Eights, Todd Gearhart, Glades Herp, Theraphosid and more. A good turnout makes it all worthwhile.
I don't know how many collectors are going but Garrick might go he's a cool guy with lots of experience with T's. Who else is going? Dealers Collectors?
Just curious if anyone else is planning on attending the National Reptile Breeders Expo in Daytona Beach Florida, Aug 17-19? Always a fantastic show and I havnt missed one since it started about 10 years ago. Normally at least 3-4 Tarantula dealers there, theroposid breeding project is always there. And if they decide to make the trip crazy 8s invertabrates has a very nice display also.
yeah, the shows are pretty awesome,ive got some buddies that will be there.they have tables turtles/reptiles,i may make it this year,gotta see being i'm in ft.laud and money is alittle tight will see,been to the ones in the past,very busy:clap:
I'll be there. Most likely (if I ain't too hung over from Friday night partying) I'll be helping at the Kingsnake.com table first thing at opening of the doors on Saturday. Usually give away free tshirts and them things go fast. After that I'm gonna likely make a bee line for any spider vendor I can find ROFL.
tkn0spdr - Im in SE Palm Bay. South of the Palm Bay BCC campus. Probably wont be able to do the dinner cause we are normally on our way back home by about 3pm or so. Ill send ya a PM, see what we can figure out.
I sent some emails out a week ago and I only got one answer which was from Krazy 8s of sunny cal who sends his best but isn't going to make the Daytona scene this year. I think since they discontinued the venemous show the arachnid dealers are not as interested in this event. Anyway things may pick up during the last week before the show. I will post dealers names who say they are going.
