If you or someone you know is fascinated by reptiles, tell them about the family-friendly reptile show coming to Saratoga Springs later this month.

There are over 10,000 different species of reptiles.  Some creep, some crawl, others slither, and some freak us the heck out, but all of them share a common ancestor that dates back 300 million years!

That in itself is pretty amazing to me - these are legit dinosaurs!

Lizards, crocodiles, turtles, and snakes are all part of a class of animals known as reptiles - and they'll be on display for you to enjoy and maybe purchase at the Saratoga Reptile Show, a one-day event happening at the Saratoga City Center later this month.

"Mark your calendars for the premier Saratoga Reptile Show at the Saratoga City Center in Saratoga Springs, NY on January 22nd from 10 am - 4 pm. Family-friendly, educational, and fun-filled, the show is here to let your family explore the magnificent world of reptiles!
