With a daughter that is completely fascinated by bugs and reptiles, our family has been looking forward to Repticon in Phoenix for weeks. The show brought thousands of reptiles and exotic pets from top breeders and educators. Our first visit to Repticon was a great learning opportunity and a fun family day.
The exhibit featured every reptile pet imagineable. From lizards to turtles with everything in between, common pets were everywhere. My daughter already has two pet madagaskar cockroaches, Zoey and Zack. She was determined to bring them home another friend but changed her focus when she learned large tortoises could live in our backyard.
My most favorite pet to learn about today was the baby sugar glider. They are adorable, super cuddly, and very attached to their human companions.
My daughter’s favorite part of the day was when she posed for a picture with a big python.
Surprisingly we left the exhibit with out bringing home any new pets. If it were up to my daughter, we would have came home with one of everything!
