It must be strange working at a convention centercollege graduations, prayer breakfasts and auto shows coming and going like a train of gypsies. But surely no event on the calendar strikes fear into the heart of employees like a reptile breeders gathering. These are not just enthusiasts. These are scientistsgods, evenwith the ability to convince two creatures (or at least one creature and a few items from Bed, Bath & Beyond) to prolong their scaly species. Breathing life into a ctenosaur is no easy task, and its probably best left to professionals. Not everyone is so easily wooed by wilted lettuce and a dose of pheromones. So come to the convention, where, in addition to enjoying the many varieties of animals on display, you can learn the vagaries of reptile romance. If youre gonna do it, do it rightand wear some gloves.
