Ok so I know I said I wouldnt go back to another reptile show as I didnt like the way the animals were displayed but I turned into a massive turn coat and ended up going on sunday anyway Ive got to say that I think it was just the shock of the first show that put me off, I now realize that the animals may be unhappy for the duration of the show and the tiny tubs with no hides are not ideal, but its usually only for a short time until they are bought and in their happy new homes. I felt much more comfortable this time and I noticed that a lot more of the animals at least had substrate in their boxes and some even had hides with photographs of the snakes on the top. I now think my heart may have ruled my head last time and think I overreacted a little bit
I actually really enjoyed it this time! The new bigger venue is tons better than the dome! Got to say I didnt see that many amazing corn snakes though...it was all about the royal phythons for me there were some amazing looking royal morphs. I held a very erm grumpy thai beauty snake, which I was really happy about as Ive not seen one in real life before. and as an added bonus think I may have convinced my other half that we need another snake he really liked a couple of honduran milk snakes we saw.
In fact saw tons of cool stuff! I really liked those aquatic garter snakes too! alas-due to bee bee needing a new viv I came away empty handed well apart from some plants for percy

The guy you saw being interviewed was probably Mark o'shea. Did he look like this

Your experience of the first and second visit to the shows sounds very much like my 2 experiences of Amsterdam lol.
Bit of a shock to the system first time round, overwhelming scenes everywhere. Knowing what to expect made the second trip much more pleasing!

I thought it was a BBC thingy? I think I remember seeing that somewhere...
I'm glad you liked it this time. I thought it was done very well

Think they were filming for the bbc. Insider/panorama type program.
