Evening All
As many of you know we had the Expo over the weekend. On Saturday 2nd and Sunday the 3rd of March 2013.

I have had this thread "open" on my desktop since Sunday night, waiting to finish it off and post it, been really busy, also the photo's I took were all fuzzy and not worth the pixels they were taken with, which I was a bit pissed about but I eventually got them sorted, so on we go! topicsucks

Would just like to say thanks to everyone who came and supported us and kept us busy for most of the weekend. :rock :thumbsup:

So again we will be attaching some photo's, and maybe Dimitri will add some of he's photo's that he took.

So as you will read in the heading "stream lined" if you remember the last expo.
Tarantulas.co.za has upgraded its look and we are becoming more streamed line at the Expo's!!

So we have our T-shirts which are awesome and very comfortable to wear.
We have installed the glass divider with the prices attached to the the divider.
Makes it easier for one to see what you want and keeps the spiders safe from. kungfu
And it looks cool on top of all of that.

Half way through unpacking of stock with a bit of a chit chat meeting going on.

The relaxed waiting for the crowd look. I think the camera has something more to do with it.

I'm sure Dimitri was replying to Uncle Charlie's M. balfori thread, cell phone's are a wonderful thing.

I'm sure allot of you heard about the 50% off all tarantulas under the glass divider.
Well this was the start of the 50% sale.

Attachment DSC_0004_2013-03-05.JPG not found



Oh boy, was it a sale, we had spiders flying over the counter with the amount of people who wanted to get some awesome deals.
As you can see in the photo below, allot of the spiders had sold out super fast, hence the empty lines.

The last round of buying before the remaining spiders got packed away.

The most coolest part for me!!
I got to handle a reticulated python, the coolest, most amazing snake, one of the snakes on my list of likes.

The guy was nice enough to let me hold the snake, when all I wanted to do was just take some photo's of the snake. when I say guy, I mean more a young teenager.

Some photo's of me and the awesome snake.

The only reason why I have not got one of these snakes is they grow far to large for my li.

Some more snakes with a bit of an interesting coincident, we where next to the same stall at the SOS Expo that was held in May.
But this time, I was lucky enough to be close enough to take pictures of these stunning ladies being removed from their enclosure They are Gaboon viper's,
Stunning colourations.
