    Firstly Supplies can vary, depending on who is there, you may be able to pick up cheaper thena pet store....depending on the size of the pet store however
    Secondly...Tanks again will vary, depends on what you are after, Stock, Custom etc etc.
    Thirdly..parking....depends where the venue is. Might be free. Might be a gold coin donation
    Fourthly....$200 will not cover your addiction!

    I went to my first one this year and i will say for me personally $200 was not enough to take. They had some great animals at the one i went to. Some stores were cheaper than others. In me saying $200 was not enough for me would also depend on what animal or animals you plan on getting? and what not. Im glad i didn't limit myself to how much to take or not take as it would of made it very hard to pick and choose. At the end of the day i walked out with 1 snake and a few other supplies.

    Leahellem: I think you took Skelhorn's post the wrong way. When he said "$200 will not cover your addiction", that was not meant to be insulting. "addiction" is a commonly used term on this forum and in relation to reptiles in general because owning herps is very much like having an addiction, you can't just stop at one!!! I can't afford to buy new clothes (which I desperately need!) but I bought a Marbled Velvet gecko yesterday!
    I know personally if I had the cash I could have spent thousands at the VHS expo in Feb, so it's not unreasonable to say $200 is not enough.
    In all honesty, I think you over-reacted a bit. Just take it easy, and enjoy the expo:)

    Mate, I am sorry if I offended you. Ask anyone on this site...Apart from yourself and in the sense of posts an Addiction means your addiction to reptiles, your love of the animal. I was not refering to it as a bad thing, however. As Disintegratus said, Clothes are important, however her ADDICTION to a reptile won :p which is expected of course! I am happy to admit I am addicted to reptiles ;) Chill dude chill!

    My answers were short and brief as everyone will post on here. Also there are thousands of Reptile Expo's around Australia, so without even knowing what state your in its a bit hard to judge!

    I will not openly offend anyone on this site. Check through my 780 posts and you will see I am not one to bag or be rude. I mearly answered your questions straight forward.

    Please do not take offence. You will get straight answers if you ask straight Q's. :)

    P.s Your are correct in the fact that I honestly (compared to alot on this forum) know jack ******* ;) There are pretty smart and helpful people on here. Again to reiterate. YES I HAVE AN ADDICTION....But its legal!

    The peeps on here however straight forward or rude (which is a very small percentage!) have actually been quite helpful throughout the last year.

    But please trust me, if you are going to an expo to buy, $200 may not cover your "addiction". Have the extra handy close by incase you fall in love with something your desire! ;)

    Goldy...Will Be a BLAST ;) Make sure you have your camera on your phone handy. The Gold Coast Expo's are usually pretty good sized so should def pick up a bargin. Bide your time and wait. As suggested above maybe check it out on the Sunday and stay close to the end as you might get a pretty schweeeeeeeeeeeet bargin!
    Good luck and have fun

    P.s
    HOW COULD I BE GRUMPY....its POETS day ;)


    Piss Off Early Tomorrows Saturday :)

    Not at the reptile expo...But there is nothing stopping you from "arranging" times to pick up and pay after the expo is finished!

    The only chance to buy reps at the expo will be at 'car boot sales'.....

    Your right mate. Ever since I was a little kid I have had a six sense that I am able to tell or get across what people meant by the grammatical errors they could possibly make. Its a special gift and I am sure everyone here appreciates me clarifying it up....It could have destroyed their weekend if they were left thinking what :'( meant without being able to glue the connection to :cry:


    ;) ;) ;)

    The Ol' Fashion Boot sales..where everybody gets a bargin!
