  4. Outside Venue Issues
  5. Restrictions


1. Carry-In Reptiles

Table vendors only will be allowed to bring reptiles into the show for the following reasons:

  • To avoid any walk in sales
  • To avoid anyone walking around with a herp that could potentially strike or harm others.
  • To avoid anyone bringing in potential imports.

No animals are to arrive during the show.

2. Imported Animals

This is the most important rule of all. There will be no imported animals PERIOD. This rule will be strictly enforced. This has been and will continue to be a clean show. Due to the confusion created by terms such as Captive Hatched and Farm Raised have been eliminated as well.

3. Venomous Species

NO VENOMOUS OR VENOMOIDS ALLOWED!

We have an agreement, in writing, that the rules lifted for the show ONLY apply inside the building.
