    SOFAR, Newcastle is always mid march so hatchies are more likely to be feeding properly. This season its the 17th March 2013

    Yes correct. The Sydney expo season seemed geared around snake breeding.....I will still be largely incubating but then I dont keep many snakes.

    I think the various herp societies do an excellent job but I would like to see the expos spread around the calendar a bit more - say one per quarter, rather than being tied to the snake breeding season. If this was a case then I think each would attach more attendees and no matter the time of year there's always surplus herps avail for those interested in buying and selling. Unfortunately the current schedule tends to lend itself to "expo fatigue" and I think the societies are actually inadvertently ending up competing with each other. Just my thoughts.

    the timing of the shows is based on several factors,
    1- have the show to early and you interfere with breeding season, have it around december and it will get to hot in the cages at the expo's and you loose animals which leaves the end of summer when everything has bred and the temp is just right.

    2- no good having a show if people dont have off spring to sell so the hatchling months are the best months to hold it.

    Hatchling Snakecentric argument....

    The expos are not only about selling. Personally I appreciate the effort that the societies put into display and generating interest in the hobby. That's why I think they need to space them out more
