Calgary TARAS show

Well today was day 1 of the show, I thought it was GREAT. I got to meet tons of people and see lots of great stuff. I also bought a huuuge female leopard and two African Emperor Scorpions.

Unfortunately I was only there 3 hours as I had hockey tryouts right smack-dab in the middle of the show. But I will deffinately be back tomorow for longer. What did everyone else get there????

Yeah the new venues not so bad. I didn't like the parking scene so much, but all the University Girls & Herp "Eyecandy" made up for the short walk heh heh ; ). I PU my new yearling Hi-yellow female JCP from SCALES ZOO, but I have been holding back on purchasing & trying to focus on sales. Hard to do because there was some cool stuff today. The Mandarin Rat snakes Angus had were hard to pass up & his buddy had some way cool turtles from Vietnam also. I have my eye on a sweet adult pair of Hi Yellow adult JCP's, but the asking price of $1000 isn't doable at present & he ain't looking to trade, DOH! Well tomorrows another day of bartering etc. so I may bring em home yet we'll see. Anyhow I have snakes to deal with, Ciao for now, Mark I.

Heh heh - I wanted to stop in and say hi to you Mark, but everytime I went by your booth you were too busy chatting up those sweet young things!
Mac Hall is definitely a nice place for the show though. I bought another Leo for my oldest daughter, and a lot of supplies. I still really like those Black Beauties you have Mark. Maybe next year.

Mark too funny, I bought the pair of Red Mandarin Rat Snakes and a Black Breasted Leaf Turtle from Jon. I wasn't planning on buying anything but how often do you see Red Mandarin Rats in Canada. I hope not to buy anything tomorrow but that probably won't happen.

OOoooooOOooo, I would like to have seen those. Not that I'm too into mandarins, beauties being my prefered asians, but wow.

Not that I'd waste money on WC adults, but the younger ones, those are workable.

Well, I sold my large arboreal cage and male crested gecko, which was a relief. I also picked up an adult female hypo golden and a baby female stripe from Julie Banighen, who was extremely nice and knowledgable, and an amazing juvenile male hypo pastel from Dan. To Dan, thanks for the gecko and please let me know about its age, and to Julie, it was very nice meeting you and the geckos are doing great. Thanks guys,

Mike
