GREENVILLE, N.C. (WNCT) — The Mid-Atlantic Reptile Expo held its 2021 summer event at the Greenville Convention Center on Saturday.
The event went from 10 a.m. – 5 p.m. on Saturday. The next event will be held on September 25.
The Mid-Atlantic Reptile Expo is an educational event geared toward reptile and amphibian enthusiasts. Over 100 tables of exotic reptiles include snakes, lizards, frogs, spiders and more can be checked out by attendees.
Owner of Outlaw Reptiles, Jessie Freeman said events like this are a great teaching opportunity to give people an idea of what types of reptiles are out there. He says after the Zebra Cobra escape incident that happened just this month in Wake County, it allows experts to educate people on venomous snakes and how to properly care for them and other reptiles per laws and regulations.
Food trucks and public restrooms are available for the event.
Admission is $10 for all guests 13 years of age and older, guests 12 and under are free. Admission is purchased at the door only.
