ACTION ALERT: Washoe County, NV and Mississippi. Plus, the Reptile Super Show is here again!
Reptile Super Show Pomona
It's here again and it's even bigger! The top names in the reptile world will be there and the show draws an international crowd. Come see what all the fuss is about. Thank you to Ramy and the Super Show crew for your continued USARK and herp community support.

The show is over 100,000 sq. ft. of everything herp! It's a fun and educational environment that promotes conservation through education and captive breeding. So much to see and so much to learn about!

The USARK benefit auction is Saturday night at 6:30 in the Sheraton Fairplex Conference Center. Just stop by the USARK booth for details. Stick around after the show and support USARK as we work to protect your freedom to have reptiles and amphibians as pets. The auction is FREE to attend and everyone is welcome. We'll have a preview of donations at our booth.

There will be live and silent auctions, and we'll wrap it up quickly so everyone can enjoy some reptile mingling. We appreciate everyone who donates and attends as USARK would not be possible without these auctions and our supporters. Get more show details at

ACTION ALERT: Washoe County, NV
UPDATE: First reading postponed and deadline TBA (likely in 3-4 weeks)

Chapter 55 of the Washoe County Code regarding animals will be revised, and has been in the works for over two years. We know animal rights groups and extremists are pushing for bans and overregulation. These animal rights groups are hoping to use Washoe County as a stepping stone for their upcoming state bill.

Please support responsible animal owners and contact officials now! All information and more details are included at the below link.


ACTION ALERT: Mississippi HB1
Mississippi House Bill 1 (HB1) is a re-introduction of last year's HB23. HB1 seeks to add “all poisonous or venomous species” of snakes to the state list of “inherently dangerous wild animals.” This would ban the importation, sale, and possession of these species.
