MORE AUCTION NEWS...

A pass-the-hat fundraiser will take place at this year's auction to help raise money for Joe Hupp, one of the most prolific gecko breeders in the country. Joe recently lost his 8-year-old daughter, Anna, to PKAN disease, and we'd like to do everything we can to help support the family's medical and funeral expenses.

For those of you who are unable to give money, please consider donating an item to our special auction, with 100% proceeds going to the Hupp family. Thank you in advance for your support and contributions. Our herp family needs to stick together in times of need!
