Default Curious about NARBC Tinley Park

Did anybody get anything fun at Tinley? I couldn't go, and I REALLY wanted to attend, so I'm hoping to experience it vicariously through hearing what others saw and bought while there. Anyone care to share?

They're not frogs, but I grabbed three leopard geckos to add to my breeding group and a colombian redtail boa. I've got too many frogs already so I had to restrain myself

It sounds like you made it a productive trip. What kind of leopard geckos did you get?

I went mainly looking for a couple midsized lizards to match up with ones I bought there last year. good size meeting with lots of vendors with interesting items. I bought 2 groups of tree frogs, a parthogenic gecko, a trio of lygodactlyus conraui, a pair of gonatodes albogularis fuscus, and a pair of day geckos that I have forgotten the species of. good time visiting with a friend as well.

Parthenogenic species sure are interesting. I've read that Komodo dragons have been found to sometimes reproduce via parthenogenesis. L. conraui are really pretty little lizards. You made quite a haul! I'd consider those if I didn't already have my heart set on williamsis.

Terribilis are going to be my next frogs. I'm building a tank for mints currently (still). Good choice.

I'll have to look those up to see some examples. It sounds like you selected a good variety.

Those versicolors are really beautiful spiders. I'd love to see your setup. Did you get a juvenile, or an adult?

I got a sling so he's super tiny. Nothing special he is just in a small plastic vile for now until he gets big enough for a bigger enclosure.

I ended up with a group of Tarapoto to fill the last empty tank I had, beautiful frogs.

Also got some new Pinguiculas from a friend too.

I didn't realize you had any empty tanks. Did you start a new frog room? Tarapotos have nice colors. I like their overall shape, too.

Terribilis are such impressive frogs. They just have a majesty about them. Did you see any nice looking mints there?
