Hi

If anyone felt that there was more snake diversity than lizards then they're wrong! Lizards diversity was through the roof! There were at least 30 different species of Phelsuma alone, teiids, eblepharids, chameleons, and agamids. So easy to say there were more lizard species present than snakes plain and simple. We were crowded and that is simply due to the popular response.

When I planned this event I was only really able to think in terms of what the DFW market was accustomed to. So I started with a venue that was more or less the same size as those used by other area promoters.

What I do apologize for is underselling the event. Our next show dates are soon to be announced and we will have 3-4 times the capacity and all of the vendors we had to place on our waiting list will be accomodated.

Matt_51, if you feel slighted by your visit then feel free to come by and check it out on Sunday for free. You may have simply overlooked or somehow(?) passed up the lizards.

Thanks again to everyone for helping out and coming by.

See you all tomorrow,

Saludos,

Carl J. Franklin
