“Think of it as a gun show with reptiles, basically,” says Jason Vander Waal, Repticon’s promotions coordinator. “You’re going to see a lot of reptiles you wouldn’t normally see in pet stores, the kind of animals you normally need to go to the zoo to see.”
The show opens at 10 a.m. today and tomorrow at the Arapahoe County Fairgrounds, 25690 East Quincy Avenue in Aurora. Tickets are $10 for adults, $5 for kids ages five to twelve, and free for the little ones (but keep the really little ones away from the pythons).
