NARBC Anaheim 2011!!


Greetings Reptilian fans of the WORLD!!

We hope most of you were able to stop by the North American Reptile Breeders Conference (NARBC) in Anaheim this past weekend…if not, here is what you missed!



First off, Prehistoric Pets, and the Swamp Brothers (from the Discovery Channel) stopped by KTLA's Good Day LA last Friday morning for an interview about the NARBC, and brought some critters along for the trip. Here is a peek:

The NARBC does reptile trade shows all over the U.S. and Prehistoric Pets attends the Anaheim Conference every year. This is our chance to showcase our animals, especially our VERY extensive and amazing collection of Reticulated Pythons. This year, we had our biggest display ever! We brought around 180 snakes, (90% of those being retics) and a few extra critters...so about 200 animals altogether! Of those 160-or-so retics, almost all of them were different morphs! It was quite a sight to see for any reptile-lover and newbie-herper alike.



We had an awesome set-up that allowed guests to get up-close and personal with the snake displays to see just how interesting the patterns and colors are. Atmosphere was present, with our large T-rex and other huge critters from the shop including 2 huge tortoises and Frank, our Disney Channel STAR monitor! People from all over the WORLD gathered to showcase, trade, sell, buy, and discuss everything reptile! It was great to see and converse with others in the reptile community, and several even visited the shop afterward!



There was also an auction, with proceeds going to USARK. The Swamp Brothers (Stephen & Robbie Keszey), as well as Ton Jones from Auction Hunters (A&E) made guest appearances and gave signed t-shirts (right off their backs!) to be auctioned off...which our very own Prehistoric Pets owner, Jay Brewer, purchased. Here's a pic of the somewhat "embarrassing" transfer! (lol)



Prehistoric Pets actually partnered the booth with another AWESOME foundation, Reptile Rescue Orange County (with our own Sam Makki). RROC is a non-profit public organization, taking in and caring for herps of all types, creating adoption opportunities, and educating the public on care and proper maintenance.



The video in this blog is the first of two...the other video of the show will be posted soon! It will include in-depth info and access of our displays and animals.




Thank you to all who helped put this show together, all the hard work...and thank you to all who stopped by to check us out! Come see us at Prehistoric Pets, and watch for the second video on Facebook!
