Yes, the rumors are true, at long last Repticon Miami has returned! One of Repticon's earliest and most successful shows back in 2003, the popular Repticon Miami became burdened by difficulties to find an appropriate venue in the area. After 4 years since the last show, Repticon Miami returned on April 25 & 26, 2009 to the James L. Knight International Center in the heart of Miami. It was a great spring show for an area with no ongoing shows. With all kinds of herpers hungry for a show in their area, check back to this page and follow us as we work to make Repticon Miami even better!
Featuring reptile and amphibian breeders and wholesalers, reptile pet products and supplies, educational seminars and exhibits, and fun-filled activities for the entire family!

World of Wildlife Fear Factor Contest!
World of Wildlife will being having lots of fun with our Miami guests, beginning with their

They will also be presenting a hands on lecture about their many reptiles and exotic mammals. So stop by to learn more about "Snickers the Racoon" and beautiful baby foxes!
Spectacular Animals on Display!
Tom Crutchfield will be at Repticon Miami and addition to his own large selection of great animals, he will also have a display of unusual exotics many herpers may not have seen before, including the albino iguana and the albino cherry-head redfoot tortoise pictured here. Stop by to see and learn more about his exotics!
Mike Dean from Exotic Kingdom will be giving a presentation focusing on various arachnids. As a breeder of these creatures, he is the man to learn from if you are into animals that even some herpers think are creepy and crawly. If you like tarantulas, scorpions, and other spiders, stop by to see them up close and personal!
If you love mammals as much as reptiles, stop by PC Reptiles and Exotics to meet some of their monkeys and other exotic mammals. They have begun a breeding program, so learn more and perhaps be tempted to bring a little bit of the jungle into your home with an exotic pet monkey.
The Wrepticon Wrabbit Wraffle
For those interested in a pet bunny, Carolyn's Rabbit Ranch will be donating a bunny for a free pet rabbit raffle. The bunny will be raffled on Saturday at approximately 1:00pm and the winner must be present to claim the pet bunny as a prize.
