Welcome in spring with something a bit different by attending SaveMe Reptile and Exotics Rescue’s Reptile Convention.

The event, which is set to become an annual one, will take place on September 1 and 2 at Majestic Nursery from 9am to 6pm on the Saturday and 9am to 4pm on the Sunday.

The nursery is situated at 90 Webber Road, Lambton.

People are invited to come along and learn more about the fascinating animals we share a planet with.

See them up close and get a chance to touch or hold one of the awesome creatures to overcome your fear.

The event is all about gaining knowledge about reptiles and exotic animals and their care.

Breeders of snakes, geckos, lizards, spiders and chameleons will be there to assist you with regard to your animal, as well as other experts who will talk to you about exotic pets.

Advice will also be given on environmental laws by representatives from the Department of Environment Affairs and Nature Conservation and members of the Germiston SPCA will be present to chat to people about how they can get involved and help.

The weekend is sure to be one of great fun and knowledge gathering.

Although entrance to the event is free, attendees are asked to bring along a donation (cash, food, blankets or toys) for the rescue centre.
