The show includes  educational seminars, presentations by Sal Scibetta of the San Antonio Zoo, who will be recounting Herping Adventures, and also informing on Responsible Pet Care. Glades Herps will be giving a Saturday presentation on the fine points of breeding both tortoises and iguanas. Courtney and Erik Honer, the kids behind Not so Creepy Critters, will be both facilitating an animal presentation, and taking part in a book signing and meet and greet! And then, be sure to catch a recounting by Pete Mimikos regarding venomous snake bites, as he will educate from experience on what can happen and how to avoid it! Reptile breeders from across several states will be exhibiting thousands of snakes, lizards, turtles, frogs, and other exotic species.
