As you'll see below, this was a snake lover's dream come true as the serpents were featured around nearly every color and nearly every shape, size, and color was available for purchase.

There were also various lizards including geckos and bearded dragons, as well as tarantulas of all sizes, colors, and species for sale as well.

In addition, the show featured various species of scorpions, beetles, and what many exotic pet owners consider to be feeders including crickets, worms, and other arthropods.

Periodically, guest speakers would appear on the stage in the corner of the convention center to give presentations and take questions from attendees and vendors alike.

While the main focus of the expo was the snakes, tarantulas, lizards, and other exotic pets for sale, there were also vendors that sold things like enclosures, artwork, and various supplies needed to properly care for these types of animals.
