LA Reptile Show

I thought I had figured out the perfect gift to give Abe for his birthday,
until his parents said he couldn't have a snake! Even though he knew I wasn't going to be able to buy him one, we still decided to go to the Los Angeles Reptile Show yesterday. They host it every few months and it's actually a pretty neat event. The main reptiles they sell are snakes and chameleons.

They had so many different types of snakes, we didn't even know where to begin!

Now I'm back to brainstorming ideas for his birthday present! Good thing I still have two weeks to come up with something :) Also, my photography class starts tomorrow (# 6 on my new year's resolutions list!)

Great shots! I love all of the colors the reptiles have.

My girlfriend's sister recently bought a python and her parents weren't too pleased lol.

I hope you had a great weekend!
