Exploring Kathiey's Local World. "Exotic Animal Show" Raleigh NC
Many years ago when the girls were young we would venture to the Exotic Animal Show to see the animals. We would enjoy seeing the mammals like the sugar gliders, hedgehogs and small primates. We even would enjoy the lizards, and all things lizard like. We were not so much interested in the spiders, snakes, and heaven forbid ever having a scorpion...yikes. Well today I headed over to the state fairgrounds to re-visit the Exotic Animal Show to see if things had changed.
Are these Meal Worms?
My friend and co-worker Vanessa and I have devised a form of "scary insect" warfare. If it is too scary to step on or squash with a book the next best thing is chemical warfare. When it comes to big hairy spiders, wasps, or my personal scariest creature the horrifying stinging centipede I reach for any chemical available. I have been know to grab Windex, Mr Clean and even Tilex to slow down and even drown the evil critters.
Well as you know, we don't all think the same way. Some folks have these creatures as their pets. I am not going to judge them, but I have placed my photos from todays show in my order of least likely to ever own to the most likely to own.....here goes
(It's Tilex and a baseball bat if I saw this in the kitchen)
(I get nervous just looking at him)
(Are those venom bulbs? Uggg)
Gators, too many teeth for me
Snakes, all sizes and colors. Not my cup of tea.
This guy is kinda cute?
I liked this exhibit. The Carolina Classic Dragons...
I can understand owning frogs, they are just cool.
Not really a rat person but I hear they are highly intelligent.
I think birds make nice pets...
So cute! A little pot bellied pig. I was surprised how soft his hair was.
Love horses. We had several horses when we were kids.
Yes they even sold jewelry at this event.
And No! I do not want this for Mothers Day:-)
I met many very nice folks today with many interesting companions. They were proud to show off their beloved pets. As we have learned in this post we are all different in these choices.
For me personally I think I have the best pet and companion in the world.
My Brodie....He is the best:-)
Such a handsome fellow!
Enjoy Your World Everyone:-)
