Repticon at Lamar Dixon

It was pretty cool, first time I've been to anything like this. Thinking about getting some sort of lizard, a sugar glider or a sulcatta tortoise. I don't think I can live with the nocturnal sugar glider barking though.

The snakes were pretty cool but I never want to get comfortable with a snake, I prefer blowing their heads off every chance I get.

re: Repticon at Lamar Dixon
my dad bought me a sugar glider when I was 15 or 16. I knew nothing about that animal. The first night that little bastard started making the strangest noises I've ever heard. He kept jumping around in his cage. Scared the shite out of me. He didn't last a week.

Yeah I came home to research and I'm not liking the youtube videos. I heard the chirps/barking from one in the show and I can't deal with that every night, especially while I'm in school. It's a shame because they seem like the coolest little things and I can't have a dog in my apartment.

I was ready to spend the money too, might go ahead and get the squirrel dog instead and leave it at my mom's.

I went there for a livestock auction once and bought a goat for $15. Had no intentions of doing so, just went to a gun show inside and heard all of the commotion outside. Mini-horses were going for $250-500. Ended up getting rid of the goat later that week by putting it in someone's field off of river Road. Impulse buy

Yeah last year I went to a gunshow there and impulse bought a used 1911.......I can't complain about that impulse, lol. Don't think I would ever have an impulse to buy a goat.

They had a rodeo going on tonight I believe.

re: Repticon at Lamar Dixon
they bond quickly to the owner. He would cling to me when others were around. I just couldn't get over those crazy arse noises he would make.

No sleep for you!!

Oh yeah they were cool as hell. Crawling from one hand behind your neck to the other hand. Jumping from the top of your head to the ground or he would let them jump on to customers, seemed they bond quicker than dogs do.

A fricking goat doesn't bond with you. They just chase you around the yard and try to headbutt everything. Don't even eat cans and shite

I still can't get over the fact that you bought a goat on an impulse

re: Repticon at Lamar Dixon
I'd probably do it again. For $15, it is hard to pass up. Everyone was bidding and shit, and I guess after they sold all of the good goats, the shitty ones were going for cheap. No idea what makes a good goat or a bad goat, I just know I went home with a $15 goat that day.

I probably would've bought a mini horse if I hadn't known that they like biting people
