Safety Tips & Waiver Forms 

Attendees of the upcoming Louisiana Reptile and Exotic Pet show can look forward to browsing or purchasing from a variety of vendors that will be showcasing numerous reptiles, amphibians, and inverts, among other exotic pets. The show will also host a select number of vendors who will be selling venomous animals. Given the inherent risks associated with such products, there are venomous rules in place in which all vendors and customers are to sign both the Venomous Vendor Liability Form, and the HERPS Customer Liability Waiver prior to engaging with any vendor.

As a further safety precaution, the event’s organizers will ensure that all enclosures hosting venomous animals are equipped with visible locking mechanisms, and all deli cups are duly marked with red tape and labeled “Venomous Reptile.” Please note that at no time will any venomous animals be allowed outside of their enclosures. Proper permits must be presented by all vendors before they are given authorization to set up their stations, assuring the safety of everyone involved.
