about us

Daytona NRBE
NARBC, Tinley Park, IL
The NARBC show is one of the largest shows in the US. I was invited to give a talk on carpet pythons, so I figured I would attend the show without animals so I could take it all in. Peter Birch and his family came over from Australia for the show, so it was great to catch up with him! The infamous Carpet Row did not disappoint, and the first section of pictures are the faces of Carpet Row as well as some of their animals.
