    The Wild Australia Expo is the first of its kind in Australia. Wether a second will be held depends on the support this expo receives. So please if you live within travelling distance of Darlingharbour, please support this event by attending and by also getting all your friends and families to attend . They need more then 25,000 people to attend to break even. Lets hope the weather is kind.

    I personally think it is going to be awesome, and I look forward to seeing as many members of APS there(including africa) :lol: :lol:

    Its also going to be a great opportunity to see some different and unusual animals up close, and also see the quality of animals that are being kept and bred. Most of the reptiles that will be on display belong to private breeders and Anthony Stimson has tried to source 'the best of the best' animals for the exhibit. So if your in the market for any new herps this coming season this is a great opportunity to check out different breeders animals and also meet some very experienced keepers.

    The "Today" program on Channel 9 gave the expo pretty solid publicity this morning when they forcast their weather... a different animal every half hour. The two I saw (before going to work) were a small salt water crocodile and a possum.

    I wish I could go but a trip to Sydney this weekend is out of the question. :?

    An overpass near my place has a huge banner, advertising the expo, spread across it.

    I'll be at the expo on Saturday and the CARA Conference on Sunday. If anyone sees an average-height fat bloke with short dark-brown hair and a fresh stud through his lip....stay away. I've heard he can be a bit friggin' annoying.
