Wow, Awesome pictures! I didn't see Mo work as hard in real life as in that picture, where he is moving, slowly.

I'll make my measly post soon

AH yes, it's been a long time, much too long since i've attended a show. Being a family guy has really tapped me out time and money wise, but things are changing and you guys are gonna be seeing a lot of me in the next couple of years. The last show that I had a table was in Calgary a few years back when Mo was a customer and just getting into things and now he's everywhere LOL! Anyways great pics, post more people! please!

Very nice photos, its always great to see people take photos at these shows to get a good feeling on its response to the community. Also the exhibits were really nice and selection looked good too. Got to match faces to names so that is always cool. And see there was a nice selection of reptiles there as well.


I would get into milks and kings just to get your show display bins, lol.


Never met him before but I hear lots of good now I see face to name so that' s cool


Cool cool, no one can sleep at a reptile show - was Goliath at the show?


When I saw that photo I thought I was at the show, Corey we are clones, lol. You might be taller hard to say.


Good to finally see a face to the name


Ahh yeah I remember them at the past shows I went too in Alberta, always a great display in colors.


Nice display, but where are you in the photo, lol.

All the photos were great, always love show photos.

I didn't take as many pictures as I should have, I didn't want to fill my memory card up too early.

Took these pictures Friday night

Jon Kendrick came to the room to see the 2 snakes we had

Then went to their room to see their animals.

I took lots of pictures of Coreys balls back in their motel room.

I'd never gotten to see a pied without glass blocking my view before.

I'm not a ball python person, but these snakes Corey had were very pretty, some of the nicest looking snakes I'd ever seen.

Saturday Morning, Walter found himself showing off how he can hold our Anaconda without getting bit (same snake strikes at me through a pillowcase for some reason).

Here you see him reaching for a mini hook to tame the beast.

Sunday at the end of show, a few invited vendors came to do the retic group shot. I hope someone else posts better pictures of this, I am unhappy with my shots with flash under the metal halide lighting. Had to lighten them a bit, and they got grainy.

Mo, Tim, Colin, Katt, Laura, can't remember his name, Kyle, not remembering name, One Armed Dan, and Mark - oh, and Pandora

Ken and Erin joined in

Mo, in his anemic, lack of burger dizzy state - had trouble controling the tame Pandoras head

I know there were lots of people taking pictures of the show, I'd love to see them posted here.

Very nice photos indeed as well. The group shots are nice as well you get a great python in the shot and a few names all in 1 shot that is the best.


Damn those are gorgeous ball pythons, my all time favorite is the Pied, if I saw it at the show I be haggling you for hours trying to buy it, good thing the 16 plus hour drive was a factor, lol. Or VISA would want to know about the


The 1st photos are from your hotel room with the kitchen?
Pretty nice if they are.

This show absolutely rocked. For Erin and I, it was our first show as a vendor, which made it extra cool for us. I've never had more fun at a show. Holding Pandora was a great close to the show too. I swear, even the 1 foot section I was holding must have weighed 20 lbs.

Thanks Walter!!! Next year's show is just going to get better!

Gorgeous photos, I love show photos and seeing the people but the animals take the list. Love seeing new animals and what people have at these shows.
