This was my first time at a show and i thought it was great. I didnt buy anything but that took alot of restraint, I so wanted one of the cresties from captive bred but having just purchased a crestie from on here i knew i had to resist. I will definately be going in september, and hopefully going to the kidderminster show to.

Loved it!! Great first time show experience...will deffo go again.

Met GothGirl Got some rubs...then even more rubs, and a 100% het clown male royal from a really nice seller

Couldnt spend as much as I wanted...lack of funds

It was the first time I'd seen (in the flesh) many of the reptiles there...that was the best bit for me.

(Note to God, Santa, Easter bunny, Tooth fairy or whoever is listening - please let me win the lottery before the September show )

most of the people there were selling the reps far too young
I wouldn't say most but there were a few selling corns that had only taken one feed and must have only been a couple of weeks old at the most.

Be a shame if some one forked out hard earned or save cash and they bought a bad or non feeder.
