THA Reptile Beauty Pageant

Postby Bushviper » Wed Feb 15, 2012 10:59 am

Dont forget! The 24th of February is the annual Reptile beauty pageant. The categories are Indigenous; small, medium and large as well as Exotic; small, medium and large plus the Four legged and Arachnids. So that is eight categories.

Entrance to non members is R20 per person and entering an animal costs R10. Members obviously do not pay the entrance fee and the first animal is free and any other animals are R10 each.

All indigenous reptiles must be accompanied by a keeping permit please.

Make sure the animal is in a clear cage that it can be seen easily or else the people will not vote for it. All venomous snakes must be in secure caging or they will not be allowed.

The more friends you bring with the better your chances of winning a prize, because the voting is done by the people and not any committee or judge.

In the past some of the winners have been Puff adders, House snakes and even a platanna won a prize. Dont be discouraged by what you think might be there. Bring your pride and joy.

To date the overall winner has always been an indigenous snake.
It is easier to ask for forgiveness than permission.

Those who are afraid to ask are ashamed of learning.

I can't wait, I was almost going to miss this one because of work but moved my trip to a week later so I will be there for sure.

I think this year will be one of the biggest pageants yet and I am sure there will be some interesting animals that have never been seen at the pageant.

Come one guys, try and make the effort to go, it is well worth it and you have enough notice.

No, if you not there you will miss out.

Haha, just joking, there is usually someone taking pics of the animals.

Yeah I have seen a sneak preview of some of the animals. I think there will be nice ones there. I hope we have some decent spiders and lizards too.

We should have photos up so dont worry.

All members of WRHA and ERHA are welcome free of charge (just bring your membership cards with) but you will have to pay for your first entry same as a visitor.
