Cold Sweat

It must be strange working at a convention center—college 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 scientists—gods, even—with 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 it’s 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 you’re gonna do it, do it right—and wear some gloves.
