Animal Scene - - ANIMALS ON THE SCENE - With re­port­ing by Jing Oliv­eros)

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.
