The inaugural Myrtle Beach Reptile Expo will be held this weekend at the Myrtle Beach Convention Center, so bring the kids and buy some cold blooded critters that will love this heat!

Jay Eaton has always loved reptiles and that love has turned into a career.  While Eaton's business, Wholesale Exotic Jungle, is based in Florida he's packed up some of his slithering, mouse eating, bug munching pals and headed to Myrtle Beach for the reptile convention of his making. 

The expo will have both Venomous and Non-Venomous Reptiles for sale as well as turtles, lizards, geckos, monitors and more. The Weekly Surge has a write-up about Jay Eaton and the Myrtle Beach Reptile Expo.

The Reptile Expo's Facebook page thay've listed some great special guests for the show: NatGeo's Python Hunters, Animal Planet's Venom 1 Miami/Dade Fire Rescue Team, and from Animal Planet and the Discovery Channel, Jules Sylvester.
