TULSA, Okla. — This weekend the Double Tree hosted a reptile expo.
There were thousands of reptiles, amphibians, feeders, invertebrates, supplies and more available to the public.
But buying reptiles or supplies isn’t the only reason people go to these shows.
One vendor, Jacob Olszanski, said some people go for a different reason.
“Sometimes people come out here to get over their fear of like tarantulas or snakes. We’ve had lots of people that have held their first tarantula ever in their life at our table, and it’s pretty cool to help them get over their fear.”
