It's all about gators, snakes and lizards as Tampa Repticon takes over Florida State Fairgrounds

Anyone who gets queasy being near anything that slithers or crawls might want to avoid the Florida State Fairground this weekend.

The third Tampa Repticon show — featuring gators, lizards, snakes and all manner of scaly creatures — runs from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday and 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Sunday.

It will boast more than 80 reptile-esque vendors, and show slots feature experts who will take turns educating eventgoers on critters such as geckos, poisonous frogs, serpents and endangered crocodiles, to name a few.

One-day tickets are only available for purchase at the event and run $10 for adults, $5 for kids, and free for children ages 4 and under. Two-day tickets are also available at the door, costing $15 for adults and $5 for kids.

VIP tickets can be purchased on the event's website.
