The exodus to a nearby restaurant usually occurs at around 8:30 - 9:00 and lasts as long as people want to say.

WHO'S INVITED? You are! Anyone with an interest in any aspect of herpetology or herpetoculture is welcome to attend, learn, and exchange their experiences with our friendly membership. Come out to meet others who keep, breed or study reptiles and amphibians, and let them share their fascination with you. The typical meeting has 10-20 people attending.
