Arizona Reptile Shows

Arizona has a few regular reptile shows and expos throughout the year, generally in the early Fall and Spring. The Phoenix metro area as well as Tucson have begun to have even more shows from national and local pet expos. Summer weather is HOT and while some animals enjoy it, others can easily suffer heatstroke and die within minutes if exposed to temperatures above 80 degrees.

It is recommended that you bring your own cool packs or bags of ice cubes and an insulated bag when attending shows when temperatures are over 75, just in case. Car temperatures can be in the 100s even on a cool day if the sun is shining. For animals that need warm temperatures, bring a heat pack in your insulated bag.

Avoid impulse buys if you are new to reptiles! Do as much research as you can and get info from local dealers who would love to work with you after the show so you can get a proper setup for your new addition. See our article on reptile pets to find out if they are right for you!

If you have information on another Arizona reptile show, please let us know! Especially if outside of Phoenix & Tucson – some of the smaller cities also have smaller local expos. MVR tries to vend at all the local shows, but not always. Sometimes we run out of animals & products! We typically sell crested geckos, gargoyle geckos, MistKing misting systems and Repashy Superfoods line of products. Please contact us if you are interested in anything in particular.
