The Charleston Area Reptile Expo is home to the state's finest reptile breeders, along with out of state ones as well. With over 800 people through the door and $400 raised for USARK, the first show was an amazing success and we anticipate future shows to be as well.We feature many of the most popular reptiles to date, alongside many unusual and captivating herps. This is a great opportunity to pick up many different sorts of reptiles, amphibians, insects, and arachnids, as well as supplies and food to care for ones you may already have.
Don't forget to bring the kids along, because there is plenty of fun for the family. Enjoy concessions (by the local Dunbar Mountain Mission church), raffle prizes, crafts, coloring pages, face painting, hands on experiences with many exotic reptiles, and most of all, get expert advice and education about just about any kind of reptile.
Our mission is to bring West Virginia high quality animals that normally wouldn't be found in your average pet store, as well as exucate the public on herps and exotic animals. We want to promote reptiles and exotic animals in hopes that people will get a better understanding of these wonderful creatures. At each expo, along with vendors to purchase tons of quality, captive-bred animals from, we have free education tables set up for kids and adults alike to learn more about these fascinating creatures.
