2013 Wasatch Reptile Expo

Titi Aury and I took the kids to the Wasatch Reptile Expo today, courtesy of Hope Kids.

Honestly, I didn't know what to expect, but figured that since Aury loves reptiles, we should go.  Victoria was a bit overwhelmed by everything, but Bertrand LOVED it!  He got to touch snakes, tortoises, and an alligator.  You can see how much he enjoyed holding a 17 lb. python below.  :)

The expo was not limited to reptiles.  There were amphibians such as tree frogs, "exotics" such as hedgehogs and ferrets, plus a dazzling array of bugs--many as big as my hand.

Aury is already planning on attending the expo next year.  Her eye is set on a pet corn snake.

Victoria's favorite animals were the tree frogs.

Bertrand's favorite animals were the snakes!  Who knew?!
My favorite?  The terrariums. ;)

The expo was much larger than we anticipated--two floors packed full of exotic animals.


  1. The fact that Bertrand likes snakes is too funny! We recently have discovered that Claire's favorite creatures are frogs! The two would make quite the pair!

    1. That is so cute! Bertrand and Victoria both approve of (and share) Claire's affinity for froggies. :)
