The biggest reptile expo in Queensland will hit the Brisbane Showgrounds on Sunday, March 25.
Next weekend the RepX Brisbane Reptile Expo 2018 will hit the Brisbane Showgrounds with more than 170 live animals.
Animals in the Reptile Zone include pythons, lizards, monitors, frogs and turtles.
The expo is a great opportunity for kids who favour snakes and lizards over dogs and cats to get up close with their scaly friends.
Alongside the range of reptiles, there will be a heap of different exhibitors including stingless bees that are native to Northern Australia, demonstrations by Bug Ed and the legendary ‘Birdman of Atherton’, Mark Culleton, with his majestic birds of pray.
Doors will open at 10 am on Sunday, March 25.
