Whew! Another weekend, another excellent show from the Wasatch Reptile Expo. And in my opinion, it was our best yet!
Of course, I’m a little biased here. After introducing myself as a reptile blogger, I got invited to connect with ZOO MED and received my first ever FREEBIE from a brand-new reptile substrate company! (Look forward to seeing a product review for them within the next month.) Guess who will be printing business cards for the next expo? THIS CHICK! Squeeeeeeeeeeeee!!!
……I need a logo. Dangit.
Anyway, here’s a recap of the October Wasatch Reptile Expo 2016’s Top 10 Animals and Vendors.
10. This bright-eyed gargoyle gecko
….Whose breeder I utterly failed to record…. Anyway, loving that bright yellow eyeliner!
9. Gargoyle Queen Reptiles
Their colorfully-striped gargoyle geckos blew me away!
8. Bertopia Geckos
Bertopia has been a constant at the expo since my first visit. These are the cutest geckos to be found, with big personalities, bold patterns, and solid bloodlines.
7. T-Negative albino blood python
Vendor: Pets & Such. Loved the striking albino coloration—the picture really doesn’t do this guy justice.
6. D & R Reptiles
One of my favorite vendors to see every expo, because leachies!
5. Scales and Tails
Scales and Tails is always an expo highlight. I was disappointed that they didn’t bring a kookaburra this time, but I can’t resist the dwarf caiman and American alligator.
4. Mark’s Ark
Their selection of reptiles was especially good this year, including:
3. A Savannah monitor named Zeus
He came with Seaquest Interactive Aquarium, and had the sweetest, laziest personality. (My opinion of savvies definitely changed for the better, thanks to him.) They also brought along the most vividly colored red iguana I’ve ever seen.
2. Nightshift Exotics
Meet this Fall’s new it breeder to keep your eye on, this expo’s #2! Ultra reasonable pricing for very impressive geckos.
1. Paradox Ball Pythons
Select Morphs seems to have unlocked the secret to paradox-patterned pythons,which makes them #1 for the Fall Wasatch Reptile Expo 2016!
