Repticon, a recognized leader in hosting reptile and exotic animal expos throughout the United States, is coming back to Baton Rouge with an outstanding mixture of vendors and breeders. This family-oriented, fun-filled event offers guests the opportunity to learn about animals not normally seen in local pet stores. Breeder-vendors are always willing to teach in their field of herpetology.

Guests can also shop for a new family pet among the hundreds of reptiles, amphibians, invertebrates, spiders, and small exotic animals. Repticon Baton Rouge is also the perfect place for them to get merchandise, cages, supplies, and both live and frozen feeders, as well as to get expert advice about caring for their new household member.

This event, held at the Lamar Dixon Expo Center, Gonzales LA offers a unique family outing suitable for all ages and for a very diverse range of enthusiasts.
