Kentucky Reptile Exposition returns

LEXINGTON, Ky. (WTVQ) – Some people like dogs, some people like cats, others still like reptiles as pets.

Saturday, reptile fans gathered at the Central Bank Center in Lexington for the bi-monthly Kentucky Reptile Expo. Fans of the exotic pets could enjoy seeing not just reptiles, but spiders, insects, and amphibians.

Visitors were able to hold the animals, talk with experts, buy supplies for their exotic pets, and even take one home.

“It’s been amazing, I actually held a snake for the first time, which was both a little exciting and a little scary. But it was cool to overcome that fear. Everybody’s been so nice, it’s been such a wonderful experience,” said visitor Megan Reynolds.

Anton Brown, a Lexington resident and reptile fan who frequently attends the Kentucky Reptile Expo, picked up a new friend today.

“I’m having fun so far, I just picked up this little monitor lizard here, he’s pretty alright. I mean, I don’t know if he’s going to bite me or anything, but I’m just trying to get him used to me, take him home, and put him in a good cage,” said Brown.

The event lasted from 10AM-4PM. The Kentucky Reptile Expo returns October 2nd at the Central Bank Center.
