The National Reptile Breeders’ Expo will take place Aug. 16-18, in Daytona Beach, Fla. at the Ocean Center.

Sponsored by Zoo-Med, Timberline Fisheries, The Gourmet Rodent and PetSmart, it will feature over 500 booths of captive born reptiles and amphibians, plus dry goods and large displays to support the industry.

“The National Reptile Breeders’ Expo is the reptile industry showcase, the trade show for the industry,” Wayne Hill, show director. “This is our 24th year of highlighting the breeding of reptiles and prohibiting the wild caught imports from our expo. Considering we don’t advertise to the general public, the crowds have always been very large, which is a result of the quality vendors we have.

“Everyone who comes to the Expo is part of the reptile world, from the largest company to the youngsters that have a turtle or snake at home and want to buy another or just to question the breeders who are there.”

In addition, Exo Terra and The Reptile Report will present lectures open to anyone on Friday night of the show. On Saturday night they will hold an auction and raise money to support the United States Association of Reptile Keepers and PIJAC, the Pet Industry Joint Advisory Council.
