Just a reminder, if you are in this neck of the woods, the LIHS will hold its 20th Annual Reptile & Amphibian Expo this Saturday, October 17, at SUNY Farmingdale (Farmingdale, NY off route 110) from 10-4. We will have a judged show - open to the public for reptile and amphibian entries and with ribbons and trophies awarded to the winners.
The expo is a great place to shop for reptiles & amphibians and for hobbyist/keeper accessories, etc...
Even if you do not want to keep a reptile or amphibian, this is a good show to come to in order to see a large variety of reptiles and amphibians. Besides those on sale, there should be at least a few non-sale displays of reptiles and amphibians. There is usually at least one or two exhibits geared toward educating folks about reptiles & amphibians - sometimes more. Also a great show for the kids. Hope to see you there.

Please note that the LIHS supports itself by way of this show. It helps make sure we can continue to educate the public with regard to reptile and amphibian natural history, conservation, captive care and so on, as we have been doing for many years.
All the best,
