The Texas Reptile Expo, show and sale, will be held in McQueeney, Texas, (just outside of San Antonio) on Saturday and Sunday, March 2-3. Showtimes are 10am to 5pm. The show and sale will be held at the Lions Club, 3211 FM 78, McQueeney, TX 78123. Admission is $10 for adults and $5 for children under 10. The Expo is open to the public. Group rates are available. What a great place for a field trip!
According to expo promoter, Bonnie, there are three primary objectives of the show. "It is our desire to educate the public about reptiles and amphibians, expose them to many of the finest reptile breeders, and help people decide which would be the most ideal animal for them to own, based on their own unique situation. Venomous reptiles will also be on display and sold at this show. There is something here for everyone."
"Keeping reptiles at home has become more popular over the last few years. Families want to learn more about their pets. Our Expo provides them with up-to-date information, advice from the experts and an opportunity to purchase the finest quality reptiles from some of the best reptile breeders. Many people who cannot have those cute, cuddly and furry pets, now find a great love with reptiles, whether it be a snake, lizard, turtle or toad. Over the years, many schools, and home-school groups also have reptiles as class pets. Education of reptiles is the key to proper care of these gorgeous, exotic creatures."
We welcome all groups and scouts, and have many classes attend as a field trip. If we know you will be coming as a group, we will arrange for a breeder to have a question and answer session with the children, free of charge. We’ve even had a few birthday parties and two weddings at our shows!
