Good day everyone
Hope everyone had a good weekend mine was great thanks to the expo. I would just like to thank the people who put this together for a another awesome expo.
And I also just wanted to see what everyone got at the expo. I got myself a butter corn from the guys at ultimate exotics. (Thanks to them for being so helpful) and then a brown lining female red tail boa from Royal Designer Reptiles. (Would like to thank Clint for helping me out by sexing her and explaining the different genetics with me). Will post pics as soon as I get a chance.
But what ever you guys got this weekend please post some pictures here as I would like to see what people got this weekend.
Thanks in advance

I got myself a pretty, little female Pastel BP who shed today, so the pics will follow soon. Setting myself a budget was a good idea, because there were way too many things I wanted lol.

Did not see this thread so posted photos on another thread of my B. rhinoceros I got. Yes the expo was awesome, I was looking to also maybe get a Tiger Retic but I did not see any(budget wise I think it was good I did not find any). Maybe I just missed it, maybe next time I will find some. Well I last went to an expo in 2010 I think so this time I went and it was fun.
