Do you crave a ball python? Find that tetrapods are taking over your life? Or just like looking at lizards?
Actually, nothing dysfunctional here. These folks care for these animals the way a dog lover handles a puppy.
People matching all of these descriptions were on hand at the Westchester Reptile Expo Sunday at the Westchester County Center in White Plains where over 200 tables of vendors and breeders make this the largest such show in the Northeast.
Says organizer Bruce Lowder, “The vendors are a mix of hobbyist breeders of popular pet reptiles, reptile stores and dealers, and supply vendors who sell cages, terrarium supplies, and specialized heating and lighting equiptment for reptiles.
We also donate tables to several reptile rescue groups.”
