About Salon des Reptiles

Reptiles are very different from other animals; it is important to educate yourself and understand them before ever buying one of these amazing creatures. Make sure you ask a reptile specialist all the questions necessary before buying a reptile. Here are some examples of questions you may ask all of our exhibitors and hobbyists present at the Salon des Reptiles:

  • How long do they live?
  • What is the maximum length that they can get?
  • What kind of habitat do they need? Temperature ? Humidity ? Desertic ? Tropical ? Etc...
  • What do they eat? How much does it cost to feed and maintain them?
  • Do veterinarians see these type of animals?

All these questions are very important and we urge you not buy a reptile on the spur of the moment. That is what Salon des Reptiles is all about: to educate without any sales.
