Critter Encounters brought some scaly and furry exhibitionists to the Expo. They were founded in 2000, and their mission is: "To provide a safe, permanent home for unwanted or neglected reptiles, exotics, and other wildlife that cannot be returned to their native environment." A noble cause! Thank you, animal people. The org receives no public funding, so give them some dough!
Anyway, the dude holding B.A.B.S. the gator didn't necessarily love my tasteless animal jokes, but he still let me touch her.
