By the way, nice stand guys!! :thumbsup:

Got a crap load of enclosures from a guy called Rauol :woohoo:

Also spent half of the time dragging my husband away from the snakes! kungfu

This was my first time at this expo - not too shabby... just wish the prices of the adult T's were more competitive - some of the prices were a bit ridiculous...


Any idea how one gets hold of this guy Raoul or where he has a shop?

UC, that is the fishiest part!

When I asked him for a business card ... he said that he cannot supply us, he can only supply pet shops, etc.

But when we left after paying, he gave me his number, and told me we could contact him with specific sizes for new enclosures.

So.. uhm... ja. I'll sms you the number just in case :dry:

I got his card... he said he only supplies to the petshops unless you have decent sized orders or need custom enclosures..

I thought the Expo was good. ive only been to 1 other one before at emporers palace and i thought that was better set up. I got some arboreal enclosures, some peat, a calender and an Avic Avic sling. was hoping to get some ridiculously low prices like the last expo i went to but then again I did go on Saturday and i guess Sunday is the day to go if you want big discounts.

dropped in to tarantulas.co.za stand (thats where i got the peat and calender)

I had a great time at the expo, I didn't want to leave but my money ran out. I didn't buy any enclosures they seemed a little bit pricier than usual but then again I might have been looking at the wrong stands.

My brother bought me an M. balfouri for my birthday (this T is the reason I got into the hobby).

I bought myself:

E. campestratus
C. huahini
P. ornata (my first pokie)
T. ockerti

Really great show and I can't wait for the next one.

Went there on Saturday, but didn't see anything that really interested me. Would have loved to buy some of those muticus slings... But at R800 each and waiting 8+ years to mature...no thanks.
