Nobody’s Called Me A Herper Since College

Wonder what a room full of herpers looks like? Well, once you discover that herpers are fans of reptiles, amphibians and all things cold-blooded, you’ll realize that herpers are everywhere, and you may be one too. Whether you like frogs, snakes, turtles or lizards, you can embrace your inner herp lover this weekend and head over to the North American Reptile Breeders Conference and Trade Show in Arlington. On-site there will be dozens of breeders, suppliers, specialists and more, so stock up on the necessary supplies or pick up a new pal from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Sunday at the Arlington Convention Center, 1200 Ballpark Way. Weekend passes are $15 for adults and $8 for kids, with special $5 tickets for Girl and Boy Scouts. Visit for a schedule of events and the full list of vendors.
