Reptile Super Show in downtown San Diego
Cold-blooded fun in July
There was a good turnout for the fifteenth annual Reptile Super Show on Saturday, July 6, according to organizer Ramy Guirguis. The entrepreneur and reptile-lover said he always gets “excellent” response for his shows in downtown San Diego.
Enthusiastic two-legged mammals crowded the aisles inside the Civic Center, where people viewed thousands of animals on display. There were lizards and snakes and turtles and tortoises. And more. Other creepy creatures included toads and frogs and tarantulas. Then there were containers of food available for sale, such as baby mice and worms and insects.
It looked like good family fun, with generations sharing the adventure.
Tickets were sold at the door, with adults paying $14 and children twelve and under paying $9. The show is scheduled to finish at 5 p.m. on Sunday, July 7, 2013. Then the bowls of snakes and frogs will go up the road to Los Angeles, for another show the weekend of August 10 and 11.
