Sacramento Reptile Show arrives this weekend

The 15th annual Sacramento Reptile Show is set to bring more than 4,000 reptiles, including venomous snakes such as the king cobra and black mamba, to the Sacramento Convention Center Saturday and Sunday.

Snakes not big enough for you? One of the show’s highlights is Izod, an 8-foot-long alligator.

The show was founded by Jeremy and Angel Epsein of Upscale Reptiles and Pets to Go in 1998. At that time, it was only 10 vendors, and it was in a hotel. The show grew in popularity, and about 13,000 people visited last year.

"We really do our best to reach out to the families," Epstein previously told The Sacramento Press. "That is our future. We are very excited about the industry. We want the hobby to continue."

Sacramento’s show is now one of the best-attended reptile shows in the country, and about 100 reptile breeders and educators from around the country will be on-hand.

Reptiles will also be for sale, so you can pick one up to take home as a pet.

The Sacramento Convention Center is located at 1400 J St. On Saturday, doors open at 10 a.m. and close at 5 p.m. It runs from 10 a.m. – 4 p.m. on Sunday.

Admission for one day is free for children 5 and younger, $8 for children ages 6 – 12 and $12 for the 13-and-over crowd. Two-day passes are also available.

Every Thursday we deliver a local event guide straight to your inbox, right in time to make your weekend plans. Sign me up.
