I am out in Michigan for an externship for a couple of weeks and am planning on hitting the show in Taylor this weekend. Anyone else going to go?

Where and when? I'll make the trip for sure - it isn't often I hear about shows around this area so I'm definitely up for it (even if only to look and wish :rolleyes: )

First time I will be going, and only because I am out here on externship. Anything good ever there?

So I went to the show and was not quite impressed, but entertained at least. Lots of kings and corns, leopards, veileds, beardies, and a number of amevas (a highlight for me as it was one of the first species I kept way back when). A really nice ornate Uro and a few malis, but the uros were all quite cold and not displayed very well for their comfort. The guy with the Uros also came with two Jackson's - one in tank, one out. I think the highlight of the show had to be watching the one out of the tank climb the waterfall, then the light, lose its grip, bounce off the screen top below, and land on the floor. I was like "hey man, your Jackson's just took a dive onto the floor." He gave me a look like, "what? oh." and bent down, picked it up and put it right back on top where it fell from.Some people.
Matt from Pangea was there with a few nice morphs and the Repashy diets. He had some really nice gargoyles displayed, a couple of nice stripes. At another table there were a couple nice Panthers too - they had a 1 year old female at the table that was gorgeous, but sadly, not for sale.
There was one other table worth mentioning. They had a pair of Leachies (see below) that were awesome, but $1300 for the 1.1 pair was past my limit for the day. The male wasn't even the one for sale either - they were takinga deposit and trading it for the other. Sounds fishy to me, but she said the female had laid previously (duds), and was gravid so...
What was weird (to me) was that they had some geckos for sale that they said were ciliatus/chahoua crosses (sp?). They were all very grey and dark in colour, some with crests, some without. Is this a normal kind of occurrence?
Definitely made me want to expand my collection, though we went to a small pet shop afterwards with the nicest orange patterned beardie I've seen in awhile - he'll probably end up in a setup in the next short while (just need some lights :))
