What do you think of the Daytona Fl show

Im getting to go to the daytona florida reptile show for the first time. What do you think of this show is it really worth the drive from texas to florida. Do the breeders have quality animals or is it a typical show filled with cornsnakes, ball pythons and leopard geckos. Are the animals overpriced or reasonable priced. Let me know what you think about this show. im saving my money for some large retics I want to buy their.

Daytona is the show to be at. As for it being worth the drive, you may want to ask the many individuals that fly in from Europe every year just to attend the Daytona expo.

Awesome just making sure it's worth it.

I agree with Ken....it's worth it.
However, you may not find many vendors selling adult retics there. Im pretty confident that you'll be able to find some nice CB juveniles though. I'm sure all the retic morphs will be there as well either to admire or purchase (depending on your budget).

We too will be driving from Texas to the Daytona show and it will be my first Daytona show as well. It's good to know I won't be the only Newbie there. G'luck with those retics. We have a no big snake rule here. I will be drooling over the ball pythons over at Daytona. Maybe the geckos . . .maybe the Dart frogs. . .it will be fun I hear there are 650 tables sold. It will put any of the shows we have here locally in the metroplex to shame.

A great show, and I'm sure that attendees will have a wonderful time.

However, my wife and I will NOT be in attendance. We were thinking of going, but found out that strollers will not be allowed in the facility! My wife, daughter (2) and I all love to attend shows, and in fact we run one of the largest shows in the Northeast. I would have spent at least $1000 at Daytona, but if my family is not welcome, I will spend it elsewhere!!!

Reptile expos should not necessarily be promoted as a place to take the kids just to entertain them. However, to specifically exclude young kids is, in my oponion, short-sighted and wrong!! Folks of ALL ages, whether they are 2 in a stroller or 92 in a wheelchair should be made welcome!

I have to defend Wayne and the stroller decision here. At this show, there simply IS NOT ROOM! It's held in an expo center the size of an NBA arena. Yet, it is still CROWDED! You would be runnning over people's ankle's all day. I have small kids myself, so I know how it is. But, for this show, find a babysitter. This is not a "day out for the family" type show, never has been, and never will be as long as Wayne is running it. Plus in a show this crowded, it would far to easy to slip stolen animals into a stroller. Now if I could just get a freaking table!!
