Smile Finally!!! Toronto Reptile Expo Pics!!!!

Hello everyone....as promised here are the pics from the Toronto Reptile Expo. Special thanks to Jeff for having the cord to the camera couriered to me by the slowest way possible...i think he used a courier pigeon! Anyway i ended up taking 162 photos at the show...so you can imagine why it took me four hours to go through them all, edit and add captions and pick the best ones.

I should add that ive decided to include a little free advertisement here for some of the different companies that come to the show....a little bit of a pay back for letting me take pictures...so you will see quite a few pics of business cards and signs etc.

The show was absolutely incredible...even though we had roughly one foot of snow dumped on us over night. Driving conditions were hellish, what would normally have taken Jeff and I about half and hour to get to...took us three hours. And we had member come from as far as Montreal in the bad weather...i really have to give them credit. Well enough of the intro...here is what the show was like from start to finish...so kick back and enjoy!


Here is the first pic of the day...this is me surprising Jeff at 4:45a.m. to start getting ready for the show


This next one is the outside of the building where the show takes place in Port Credit Ontario....Notice how much snow we got on our first snow fall!

Once inside we quickly got set up at the ssnakess.com booth (okay we were late). The booth whic i realized the last couple of show is never really got any pics of. So here is a couple to keep Jeff happy. The booth is used to showcase some of the product line that will soon be available here in the online store (soon to come)


And another one

But...do to the cold and crappy weather...we were not the only ones that arrived late...Here is Teresa from Tarzets bringing in her goodies for the snow ( What a gentleman i am...notice how i watch and take pics while the poor girl struggles to carry stuff in!)


Even Dom looked cold as he arrived to the show...kicking up his feet and singing show tunes all the way through the parking lot...he is quite a character!



Once inside, many of the vendors looked like they were just as tired from the travel as we were. Here is Darren Hamill....being camera shy for once...either that or sleeping....okay, hes doing neither...i wish i was double jointed too!!!

Even the people taking entrance money and giving out tickets were very friendly at the show!!!
