Confession time: I want a tarantula really bad.

I've had lots of exotic pets- snakes, geckos, hissing cockroaches, etc., but I just need a big, beautiful spider. I can't really explain it.

If you're like me and love reptiles and other "exotics"- the HERPS Reptile & Pet Expo may be road trip worthy for you too:

Join us March 9th and 10th for our very first Wichita Falls Exotic Reptile and Pet Show at the Ray Clymer Exhibit hall! Over one hundred tables will feature thousands of reptiles, amphibians, insects, feeders, small mammals, and supplies all available to the public! Check out our educational area, educational talks, hands on experiences, and LIVE rattlesnake demos both days! Concessions will be on hand, so make an entire weekend out of it. You don't want to miss this one!
