Default Ihs durham show september 2013

Make a date of it – 29th September 2013!

The Durham IHS Exotic Animal Show, now in its third year, will again take place at East Durham Community College (Houghall Campus), Houghall, Durham, County Durham, DH1 3SG. It will open at 10am, and judging starts at 11am. A full programme of scheduled events will follow shortly. It is run by the two local International Herpetological Society Branches.

For those unfamiliar with the day it’s a great combination of exhibition, “Crufts” style judging show (great for breeders wishing to showcase their breeding projects – imagine saying your reptile won first prize at an IHS show!) and trade stands selling all manner of reptile equipment at discounted prices. Already we have some great bookings including Coast to Coast Exotics, Blaydon Exotics, Prehistoric Pets / Reptile Room, Frogs R Us (Dave Booth) and of course Naturally Wild (Greame Skinner) with their popular venomous reptiles. There are more bookings to be announced!

Catering will be available again. There is ample car parking – watch out for the signage (as you enter the college grounds go up the drive, turn right and follow it around into the car park). The signs will have large arrows directing you to the Exhibition Hall.

Come along for a great day out, don’t forget to bring your animals along to enter into the show – you don’t have to be a breeder, or have an expensive animal, all are welcome to enter and the judging system means that all have an equal chance of winning a First, Second or Third Class / Best in Show at an official IHS show!

Please note – selling of animals at the event or on the grounds of the event is strictly forbidden.

For further details contact Kevin on 01325 283756 or Chris on 0191 4990333.

Classes are;

Chelonia (Tortoises and Turtles)
Rats / Kings / Corns / Milk snakes
Boas and Pythons
Agamids (includes Bearded Dragons, water Dragons etc)
Iguanids (Includes Anoles, Collared lizards etc)
Ground geckos (Includes Leopard, Fat Tail, Wonder geckos etc)
Arboreal geckos (Includes Tokay, Day geckos etc)
Other Lizards (Chameleons, Monitors and all other species not covered above)

Finally there is a best in show and a fun "ugly" class for those animals only their owners could love!

There are First, Second and Third Certificates given in each class, and a £5 for first prize in each class to spend with either Blaydon Exotics or Coast to Coast Exotics who will be there on the day. The best in show also wins £25 to spend at the new Horny Toad on-line shop at www.coasttocoast.co.uk.

Its a great fun day out - for pet owners and especially for breeders who will be able to claim the kudos of winning an International Herpetological Society show!
