I go there twice a year and was there today, its a blast! Its been overrun by snakes the last couple years, and quite frankly I think the one in the spring time was nothing but snakes! None the less, I love that place. I got both of my torts there a few years ago =)

what a disappointment, If i wasn't picking up my tank i would have been very upset, I drove 2 hours, paid 15 a piece to get in, & 99.5% were snake dealers.
i don't know how they make any money, just barter between all the booths, the only way to make money was have a 50%off sale, what a bust, saw 3 torts, & the ones i saw were not that great, i won't be going back,

Wow...that certainly would be a disappointment. Unless of course you're in the market for a snake. I'm not in that market. My wife would kill me. And I don't mean figuratively.

Seems like the amount of turtles and tortoises you see at all the reptile shows has been dwindling for many years now.

Glad I didn't make it seeing it was mostly snakes. I love snakes but will never be in the market for one.
Glad you got your cage though. I bet the little ones are loving it.
