Growing up I never had a furry pet, but I did always have some sort of creature that either had scales, shells, or gills. From turtles to frogs, to iguanas and chameleons I had them all, much to the chagrin of my mother. I never heard someone scream so loud when Frank, my iguana got out of his cage and surprised her at the top of the staircase, but that's another story.

If you are a fan of things that crawl, climb, slither or swim you need to be at BUFFALO GRAND (formally Adams Mark Events Center)120 Church Street downtown Buffalo.

From snakes and spiders to frogs, turtles insects, and more. The Buffalo Reptile Expo is a family-friendly event where everyone can come out to pick up a new pet. Also, vendors will be offering discounts on everything and everything your new friend needs to live comfortably.

According to one of the organizers Patrick Charles:

The Buffalo Niagara Expo is much more than just a reptile show. We not only offer an array of top-quality breeders and vendors, but we also offer a unique, exciting, and family-friendly experience that continues to set us apart.

So if you are into, or want to get into taking care of reptiles, amphibians, and arachnids this is the place to be. Feeders, supplies, caging, and reptile-themed gifts are all under one roof with special prices offered up by suppliers.

The Buffalo Niagara Reptile Expo is this Sunday (September 19, 2021) starting at 9 am and going until 3:30 pm. More info at
