Saturday-Sunday, Sept. 21-22

You can't afford a plane ticket to the Amazon but desperately want to see a Bolivian bleating frog or an emerald tree boa. You have two options: either save your cash and run headlong, machete swinging, into the forest, or come to Boise's Repticon. We'd recommend the latter, although the first could lead to some really interesting dinner party stories.

Reptiles of all shapes and sizes will be on hand throughout the two-day event and those who want to scope out the cold-blooded scene can find helpful things like fun and creative ways to decorate your terrarium.

The whole family can check out live animal presentations or learn about the importance of reptiles to our ecosystem. Even if you've never touched a snake and don't know the difference between a toad and a frog, come learn about each and every reptile with a presentation on basic reptile care.

Buy your tickets online and get automatically registered for the VIP treatment that not only includes a VIP raffle filled with loads of reptile swag (yes, there is such a thing), but also gets you access to the Nampa Civic Center one hour before it officially opens. This early entrance and celebrity treatment also makes you eligible for a free ZooMed tote bag. Maybe your dial-up is iffy and your computer is on the fritz--not a problem. Tickets are available at the door. But what about those sweet prizes? Raffles will be held every hour for non-VIP guests.
