Show pictures

The show is still going on right now until 4, but we got there early, and left early. :P

My photo skills were just CRAP today, and the show lighting didn't help matters much, BUT I did get a few photos of certain animals. Everyone had some VERY nice stuff, and everything pictured was obviously 500 times better in real life so I hope the vendors will forgive these crappy representations.

Stav had a lovely set up, and some beautiful boas on his table. I didn't get any CLOSE photos as I wanted to be quick but here is part of his display.

Capitol Dragons had their sweet beardies at the show. Some amazing Luecistics and of course all the other types were out on display.

JD Terrariums had a nice display and some great aboreals out on the table. The two Emeralds they had were just stunning. Picture perfect if not for the bad lighting and glass :P

Cutie moniter from Jay's Sons Snakes:

Simon Hamelin had gorgeous snakes on his table, and some nice balls on display. He let me take this photo of a beautiful light colored ball. Unfortuantly I do not remember which morph. But I'll assume a ghost of some sort, as it did NOT look normal. Much lighter.
<img src="http://8snakes.myftp.org/marisa/show/7.jpg">

Some beautiful balls from JenericReptiles. They were so amazing in person, their scales looked so velvety and soft.
<img src="http://8snakes.myftp.org/marisa/show/12.jpg">

The pics that are in EVERY show set of photos, Corey Wood's ball pythons....I was really happy to see his banded balls. They are really stunning. I love "morphs" or phases that retain some color of normals such as bandeds, reduced, etc etc. Again, these photos are CRAP and the banded especially looks *GREAT* in person.

<img src="http://8snakes.myftp.org/marisa/show/9.jpg">
<img src="http://8snakes.myftp.org/marisa/show/8.jpg">

I am upset this photo did not turn out well. Niagara Reptiles had some BEAUTIFUL Hog Island boas on their table. Unfortunatly the pic is out of focus, but I wanted to make sure to get it in the post as they really do have amazing snakes and I was almost about to skip my rent to buy some Hogs today from them :P But I guess a pic will have to suffice for now:

<img src="http://8snakes.myftp.org/marisa/show/11.jpg">

My boyfriend bought a really neat little mini aquascape for his office from Reef & Aquarium Design. They had a beautiful display, amazing fish and plants. This is what we bought:

<img src="http://8snakes.myftp.org/marisa/show/16.jpg">

And here is the whole display he had set up:
<img src="http://8snakes.myftp.org/marisa/show/6.jpg">

Canadian Feeders had a table with all the usual goodies for herps to eat. I picked up some butterworms for my Golden Geckos, and a couple Hornworms for my tarantulas to try. My female refused hers but my pacman made quick work of it. Here is my male T, and my female Golden Gecko enjoying my purchases. Thanks guys!

<img src="http://8snakes.myftp.org/marisa/show/17.jpg">

And some of my favorite ssnakess.com members:
<img src="http://8snakes.myftp.org/marisa/show/4.jpg">

Yeah. That's right. I pasted Matt's face from another photo on this new photo because he refuses to show himself these days. Well NO MORE! Heather was nice though and kept her pretty face showing. Thanks Heather. At least you aren't ridiculous like Matt :P

Anyways Grant did a good job again with the show, and the vendors had great stuff as usual. I hope everyone did well, and bought what they wanted. I wish I could have stayed longer but I wanted to go over to Port Credit and then home. :P

Let's see your pics!

Marisa

It was a great Expo! I have to say that the BRB's that Large Exotics had were AMAZING! I loved them, and they didn't bite me! lol

Well, I think I'm going to go and try and convince my mom to let me get one. And I'm going to keep this in mind - It's easier to ask for forgiveness than for permission.

BTW, thanks for the pics! I agree, Stav's setup was beautiful.

Vanan- Yeah you know what I tried to get some pics of colubrids, as they are my #1 favs. But the problem I was having was the lighting was so crappy w/ my camera and combined with the deli cup lids...... that everytime I took a shot of a baby colubrid (you know, like pencil thin, 8 inches long tiny things) it would just come out horrible. So I gave up all together and stuck with the fatter snakes :P

Cool pics Marisa!! Wish I'd taken some that I could post, but unfortunately I was a dumbass and forgot to charge my camera batteries before we left for the show

The show was great though -- I had an awesome time, and saw some amazing animals! Came home with a beautiful female tangerine honduran from Roy Stockwell (courtesy of Grant... thanks Grant!!). And if I'd had some more money with me, there's no way I would've been able to resist bringing home at least one of the beautiful Hog Island boas that I saw... I was drooling all over the ones at Stav & Simon Hamelin's tables... lol.

It was also great to get to chat in person with old friends, and get to meet a few new ones for the first time. Finally got to meet Heather, and Melly! And Roy, so I got to thank him in person for picking out such a beautiful girl for me! Got to see Matt, and Nick, and Linds again... And as for Marisa, she managed to elude me... again Next time I swear I'm getting there as soon as the show opens, so there'll be no chance of her coming and leaving already before I even get there. LOL.

This was the first show I'd been to since it moved to the new venue, and it was great to see all sorts of new vendors! Another great show Grant, keep up the good work! Can't wait until I can make it out again...
