Cant help thinking so many people would have come away with a cute baby and not realising how to look after them or appreciate how big they will get.

Still, very much in awe of the amount of reps. I think im just a bit bitter as im so skint and couldnt get anything.

I understand what Shamperz means - maybe 'show' is the wrong term for the Donny event. For me, I was happy with the 'Car Boot for Reptiles' format, as I went with a shopping list. As I've said elsewhere though, the list ended up as a screwed up ball in my pocket once I saw what was there and the little guy in my head was saying 'go on, it's only money.'

Anyway, I fell in love with Beardies at the 'Where Dragons Dwell' stand. So I bought one. Regrets? Nah, it's only money ain't it.
