Who's ready to see some exotic, colorful, even creepy, and crawly reptiles of all shapes and sizes? This event isn't just for the kids but for all Missoulians.

I never had lizards, alligators or gecko's growing up. I did have my share of garter snakes, however. That is until my mom found out, and that was the end of that secret pet project. There are a ton of cool reptiles I was only exposed to in tv and science books that I definitely missed out on, but alas, there is a huge Reptile Expo coming to Missoula that gives me, and you, another chance to see these amazing animals. Check it out.

The Big Sky Reptile Expo: Montana's Largest Reptile and Amphibian Expo

Where: Hilton Garden Inn, Missoula Montana (3720 N Reserve St, Missoula, MT 59808)

If you are a hardcore reptile fan, there is definitely a VIP package ready for you as well that includes:

Early access to the show - 9 am

Access to hold the James of The Jungle Animal Collection

Custom Expo Glass Mugs

Custom Vip Badges

Entry into the Expo Raffle

Now, what kind of Reptiles will be on hand? The event page doesn't go into a lot of detail, but a quick Google search reveals there are a ton more animals in the Reptile world you might not have even thought about including Komodo Dragons, Turtles, Crocodiles, Bearded Dragons, and Dinosaurs. Sadly I think we won't see a T-Rex on hand, but one can dream.

This event sounds perfect for a Science field trip, or just a rad family outing on the weekend.
