The first Chico reptile show took place at the Silver Dollar Fair Saturday.
About 20 vendors from across the Western United States showed up for the event and hundreds of reptile enthusiasts came out to see their creatures.
Some of the crowd favorites included lizards, geckos, snakes and turtles.
“This event is so cool,’ said event organizer Bruce Smith-Peters. “There’s so much excitement being generated about this. Rather than having to travel all the way to Sacramento for a show we finally have one here.”
