    Just thought I would let anyone who is interested in the Reptile shows know about this one. I'm going to see if any of the vendors are knowledgeable about the hingback tortoises. Also to see what is being offered. Also great time to get supplies.

    Where is this Repticon located? I wanted to go. I think I remember somewhere near Tampa? Great Name by the way! I used to know a sweet lady who worked at Taco Bell who used to say "oh, Pooh Bear" when something went wrong...

    It is at the Florida State Fairgrounds
    4800 N US Highway 301
    Tampa, FL 33610.

    We have been to the last few and there aren’t many tortoises there. More snakes than anything. However the tortoise people seem knowledgeable. If you go take cash or buy tickets online.

    Thank you very much. I enjoy looking at the snakes and the frogs and iguanas. Especially the iguanas.

    I enjoyed it. We actually got a bearded dragon at the last one and may look for another this time.

    $10 for adult unless you get 2 day tickets plus parking. I don’t remember how much parking was. If you get there early parking isn’t bad.
