I had a blast at the show and got to see allot of cool reptiles and meet allot of reptile keepers. It was nice to put some faces with the CF members there that I hadn't had the pleasure of meeting before. Our own CF Mod Trace was there and after chatting with her via the forums for over 5 years it was so awesome to finally meet her in person. I even got to bring home something this year besides feeders and supplies.....a baby Redfoot tortoise that I named Teddy. He is so adorable and his life span is about 40 years. :D

Here's my Teddy and then on to the show pictures. :)

This is the host hotel The Hilton. The symposium and the auction are held in the ball room there and it’s right across the street from The Ocean Center where the show is held. The Hilton is ocean front and I believe every single room is ocean view.

The first thing we attended was the Symposiums Friday night. My very own vet Dr. Ivan Alfonso did an awesome turtle talk. He was one of many speakers.
