    Was an awesome day!
    Big pat on the back to the Macherps team. Was great to see some of my herper mates i don't see often like Simone and Bryony.
    The D.Rhodogaster, Keelback and the mother Alpine Bluey were highlights for me! The prices on Canberra Exotics' tanks were amazing, and the timber coffee table enclosures were a classy way to display reptiles (well compared to the melamime i use lol).
    Congratulations to the winners of the show also, there was some tough competition. Perhaps add more show classes in the future? eg. Python, colubrid/elapid, dragon, skink, monitor, gecko? There was enough specimens from each family to happily fill each of these classes, even at the expense of turning the winning plaques into blue/red/green ribbons?
    Perhaps look into professional security in the future shows? The volunteers that helped on security done a good job, but i think having a security guard at the exit, monitoring exhibits and one walking around the retail hall would be more beneficial, today's volunteers would understand what I'm hinting at.
    All in all, a fantastic day out, with a good variety of animals on display.

    P.S I was sure there was at least 6 types of gecko for sale

    Expansa - Large URS tank with black gravel - the black gravel was the best thing in the world for that little cracker - the contrast looked incredible...
