    Since the weather has cooled off, this would be a good time to go there, but we don't have any money available.

    It's very tempting but it would cost us $60 in gas, $40 to get in and probably $60 in food, PLUS the cost of the rodents we need. Grand total = approx. $200, but probably more. Those are some expensive rats!!!! OH WAIT!!! We'd have to go to Cabela's for lunch!!! I doubt we'd get out of there for less than $100!!

    We went in August last year. Not the time to go. It was 90 degrees with 90% humidity inside!! But if you like women wearing bikinis with cobras you'd like the show. Maybe we'll go back in the spring.

    What hours are the show and is it any different from the White Plains show? I don't have any money now but I'd like to see the interesting reptiles there. How much is it to get in?

    Oh - Saturday shows...GREAT idea. I don't like how the White Plains one is on Sunday.

    When we went there in 8/07 as you walked in there was a woman in a bikini behind a cobra in a tank. I didn't know which one to stare at!!!

    It was wicked hot in there!! It should be nice this time of year. We'd like to get out there again next year some time.

    Hahaha! That'd probably be an easy choice for me!:mrgreen: So is this show ALL venomous?

    Question 1) Why do people by venomous snakes?
    Question 2) How do you interact with a venomous snake? Is your relationship always kept to using a snake hook?
    Question 3) Do you keep anti venom in your household at all times when you buy one?

    I was watching some video of these 2 dudes bringing their copper snakes home and trying to feed one a live mouse. They just sat there and had the snake bite it on the butt. That's messed up....

    Not all venomous, they just allow the sales of them. It's great to see some the stuff you only see on TV.

    YOU GOTTA GO!!!! It's an hour and a half right down I78!!!! And Cabela's is right up the street!!

    8 South Fourth Street
    Hamburg PA 19526

    Exit 30 off of I78, go south less than half a mile down the road.

    If you don't go I'll be at your house Sunday morning to take back the Tegu!!!!! :mrgreen:

    Made it back alive and pet free from Hamburg! It was a big supplies day. I got all the accessories I needed for my 6x3x3 and will be setting it up tom. Saw some interesting stuff but nothing extra ordinary.

    I also saw Argus333 and his wife. I only recognized him because of his hair!! LOL Very nice couple though!
