SCALES & CRAWLERS 3
Held at Victory Mall, Monumento, the third edition of Scales & Crawlers was organized by Boa Keepers Philippines.
Attendees got to enjoy booths selling exotic pets and exhibiting pythons, boas, iguanas, bearder dragons, leopard geckos, tarantulas, guinea pigs, hamsters, and even betta fish.
While the event was aimed at showcasing pets with scales and pets that crawl, all pet lovers could still enjoy the activities. Even those who could not make it got to participate via several online contests and activities. Activities included postermaking, submitting photos of pets online, having kids dressing up as animals for kids, a display of BKP memorabilia, the group’s version of the popular “Pinoy Henyo,” charades, vape cloud chasing, beer drinking, and “Minute-to-win-it”-style games. The event marked the first time the BKP held a two-day event. Among their supporters were Zoomed Philippines, Congo Charlie, PC Exotics, and Majestic Balls. They also welcomed new partners like BEP, PCCK and PCHK.
