You may ask, what's a reptile expo? It's a place where breeders of reptiles, amphibians, and bugs gather to sell and educate their adorable pets. There's so much to see and do at a reptile expo, below I listed 11 of the top reasons you'll never regret going to one.

11. Shopping

There's no shortage of shopping at a reptile expo. There's plenty of novelty items with cute reptiles and puns on shirts, mugs, and vinyl stickers. They also have some unusual pieces like once I found animal skulls. You'll always be surprised at what you might find even if you're just browsing.

However, beyond the souvenirs, it's a great place to shop for your reptile pets. They have everything you could possibly imagine from feeder insects to substrate, terrariums, plants both real and fake, and so much more. Basically, anything you can think of to complete the perfect habitat for your pet. You have to watch prices from vendor to vendor but their generally cheaper than the average pet store. I've gotten steals for crickets and a cricket keeper for my Baby Basilisk.

10. Frogs!

9. Hold Cute Pets

Although be careful. Some vendors let people hold pets no problem, others are warier because they don't want their pets to catch any potential diseases. It just depends on the vendor.

8. Creating Memories with Friends

7. Snakes!

Every time I've been to an expo there's always been something. One expo it's axolotls and the next it's baby alligators. New vendors and new pets equal new and exciting experiences.

5. Turtles!

Just ask and the vendors are willing to answer any question you have on care, health, and the general species. They are pretty knowledgeable about what they do, considering for a lot of them this is their full-time job. Some vendors even keep care guides that have helpful and useful info on the care of pets.

3. Lizards!

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.

I was asked so many times why I wanted to go to a small school when a big university is so much better. Don't get me wrong, I'm sure a big university is great but I absolutely love going to a small school. I know that I miss out on big sporting events and having people actually know where it is. I can't even count how many times I've been asked where it is and I know they won't know so I just say "somewhere in the middle of Wisconsin." But, I get to know most people at my school and I know my professors very well. Not to mention, being able to walk to the other side of campus in 5 minutes at a casual walking pace. I am so happy I made the decision to go to school where I did. I love my school and these are just a few reasons why.
