Repticon Brings Unique Creatures To Fairgrounds

Bearded dragons, like these staying warm under a heat lamp from Patty Cake Dragons, were a hit with reptile enthusiasts.

The South Florida Fairgrounds once again hosted Repticon, one of the largest exotic animal expos in the area, on Saturday, March 16 and Sunday, March 17. The weekend event provided family-friendly opportunities to see a variety of snakes, lizards, turtles, amphibians and even spiders. Expert breeders were on site to answer questions and conduct seminars on everything from sugar glider enrichment to caring for geckos. For information on future shows, visit
