I used to go there all the time when I lived in Chicagoland (until fall of 2000)

It's a pretty good place to look around, quite a bit of variety. The most memorable thing to a lot of people is the parking. The parking is in a big field and if it's been raining recently (pretty much a given in Chicago) there will be mud. Wear boots. ;-)

I doubt you will find many of the less common corn morphs, such as pewters, butters, lavenders, etc. The only morphs I ever remember seeing there were based on the amel/anery/hypo/motley traits. But who knows, maybe someone who has such stuff started selling there.

You will almost certainly see tons and tons of baby ball pythons, for anywhere from $15-$30. Prices are generally WAY cheaper than you would expect.

It's also a good place to get supplies. (Cages/bedding/food/etc.)

I got this amel, a Ball Python, and my Calking at that swap. :)
