When I was breeding and selling corn snakes there were always a few reptile shows in the Dallas/Fort Worth area each year.  Any shows out there for the Anting Hobby?

Funny you should bring that up. Once told Drew we should have an "Ant-con", like Comic-con in San Diego. Unfortunately the only people showcasing would be Drew, me, and a handful of vendors like ByFormica and Tarheel. Ants Canada would probably be too good to show up ;)


In a Walmart parking lot, no less.

I intend on setting up a stand at "Cran-Fest" one of these years. It has become huge in the past few decades. It has over 1300 vendors and more than 120,000 visitors. Odd ball vendors always do really good and draw a lot of interest.


Edit: Last year there was a guy that kept bees and was showing off his setups, that drew ALOT of peoples interests. Seeing the setups and all was really cool.
