NY Metro Reptile Expo
Reptiles as pets will be the focus of the NY Metro Reptile Expo at the Westchester County Center in White Plains on Sunday, September 9 from 9am to 4pm. More than 175 reptile exhibitors, vendors, and breeders from all over the United States will be displaying thousands of live pet reptiles and amphibians, ranging from tiny frogs to spiny bearded dragon lizards to large boas and pythons. Many of these animals will be available for sale as pets. Reptile book dealers, cage builders, and pet supply companies selling heaters, lighting, and other reptile care supplies will also have booths. Several regional Herpetological Societies and reptile rescue organizations will have educational displays, and their representatives will be available to answer questions on the suitability and needs of various reptilian pets.
