    Hamburg, PA Pictures (2/23/08 - DUW)

    OK, here are my pictures from the show the other day in Hamburg. They allow venemous snakes. Also, it was a smaller show and more informal - very friendly atmosphere. A recommend for sure. Also, I got to live my dream and touch a reticulated python. He was only at 14', but still a retic! I don't have a picture of that b/c that is when my husband was across the field house oogling the green mamba, black mamba, and gaboon. BTW, he watched the green mamba get sold for cash - according to him, lots of hundred dollar bills traded hands. By the time I got over there, the vendor had packed up and left. So, unfortunately, no pics of those guys.

    Here goes:



    Western Diamondback Rattlesnake


    Taiwan Beauties


    Banded Rock Rattlesnake




    Wild Caught Kenyan Sand Boas, one with big SCARS (in white)


    And last but not least, me and the Jaguar Carpet Python I got to hold.

    I believe it was Will Bird's (but, for the record, the guy who showed him to me was not Will). I got to meet and chat with Will and bought his book, of course! It's "A Snake Hunting Guide" and a great read so far. If only I'd remember to get it autographed... bummer!

    It's not quite the NABRC show, but it looks like fun! I think shows are great way to enjoy our hobby, and spend some time among like minded people. Although I do have to say you don't look all that happy to be holding that Jaguar Carpet Python.

    You might bend, till you break cause its all you can take
    On your knees you look up decide you've had enough
    You get mad you get strong wipe your hands shake it off
    Then you Stand

    I think that expression on my face was me saying, "Honey, get me in the picture, too!" And he was snappy. He showed me the inside of his mouth. But he bit the guy behind the display quite a bit as he tried to get him back in the deli cup.

    Is your husband into snakes? Mine REALLY isn't. He was probably thinking... we're not bringing that thing home are we?

    I've been to the Hamburg show once, and I thought it was a pretty cool show. It's not huge, but it's decent in size. I just really enjoy the shows, even better when you can enjoy them with friends!

    Ah man! Now how am I supposed to now that?? What is your business name? I would have loved to meet you. I was just explaining to my husband that, despite your infraction points, I really like you. Maybe if you had responded to my thread about the show, I would have sought you out!!!

    Actually, my husband DOES like snakes. He's just not over the top like I am. I was holding the jag; and he walked up asking, "How much is that?" I said, "You don't want to know." He agreed it was a beauty, but not in the price range for our poverty level right now.

    Um... THANKS. My husband just saw that.
