My wife and I would be up for that, Ed, if it works out with everyone else. Seems like the Philly group is indeed a small one. We still have plans to attend the Flower Show at some stage on Sunday.

I would be up for that as well, but you said you need to know ahead of time, and March 2nd is only four days away. Hopefully that is enough time ? I definitely wouldn't want you to go out of your way for us, but of course would love to check it out.

I am up for whatever also. Just let me know, the zoo sounds great if thats alright for Ed. I only know of two people that were planning on attending my house. So like I said just let me know so I can clean or whatnot. I guess the zoo would be better since that way I could avoid cleaning since I will be working up until sunday morning.

I've got the okay from work but I need to be able to tell them before Sunday about how many people would be going.

Figure it out and send me a pm on who would be going to the Zoo. I have to do a frog talk at 2 pm but other than that I can pretty much make time to take people around (just don't be surprised about how primitive our behind the scenes areas are..)

However keep in mind that you cannot bring animals and plants to the Zoo so those conducting trades etc would have to make other arrangements.

Ed

Okay it sounds like we have less than 10 people that can make the Zoo trip which is a good number. If you get to the Reptile House by 1 you can see the croc (some of the crocs are trained to key in on a bamboo pole so they station and are fed at the station) and aquatic section feedings (a 100 pound alligator snapper, some young dwarf caimen and some other aquatic turtles). After the feedings (over about 1:30-1:40) I can meet people in the public area and run the tour.

Other than that, to make sure you have enough time for the tour, I would say anytime before 3:30 is good.

Ed

Quick edit... Please no kids under the age of 8.

That sounds great Ed! If anyone wants to meet up beforehand just let me know. There are some great places to grab brunch here in Center City and the zoo is only a 15-20 minute drive from here. Look forward to meeting everyone tommorow. Also if anyone has any plant clippings or frogs please list hem here to sell or trade. I might be able to pull some clippings of jewel orchids, and another plant that I cannot recall the name of that is blooming right now. Also if anyone has any springtail cultures please let me know.

Jacob

I almost forgot I have to do a 10-15 minute talk on frogs tomorrow at 2 pm so the tour would probably be better off starting after that point.

Just keep in mind that you can't bring plants or animals to the Zoo....(trade them elsewhere and stash them in coolers but don't try bringing them inside..)

Michael (Corpus Callosum) is going to be the contact person. Try and meet up with him at the building and once the feedings and talk are done we can get on with the tour. (cameras are okay)

Hey guys, I am going to pick up Greg and get there as soon as I can, but it will probably be around 1pm due to an errand at costco we have to run on the way. I gave Jason my cell number (and anyone else is welcome to it if they PM me before I head out in the morning) and as soon as I get there will try to gather everyone up best I can. I haven't met Jacob and Tom yet but belive I recognize everyone else. Then after 2pm when Ed's schedule frees up we can continue with the tour.

Looking forward to meeting everyone I haven't met and a nice ice breaking session for future meetings!

Hope everyone had a nice time- we shamefully lost track of time at the Flower Show, no doubt intoxicated by all the spectacular orchid blooms :shock: :shock:

It was awesome to meet at least 2 of you today. Thanks Ed for the great tour of the reptile house. Also to honor Ed's credentials he is indeed a well suited reptile house keeper at the Philadelphia zoo. Look forward to going up to GNYADS meeting in Ithica, and also future meetings of a Philadelphia group.

Glad you all had a good time. I pulled another vent morph from that one rearing tank today, I know I didn't see it yesterday. The A. zeteki that were in amplexus were inspecting nesting sites when I left today so I hope to have eggs in a day or two.
