If we as reptile keepers and breeders can organize our reptile expos as "competitive show events" that judge our animals (the same way that cats and dogs are judged at their shows) we would be exempt from this ban if it passes.
The only problem is that the text of the ban only specifies dog, cat and bird shows; technically this could be considered discrimination against reptile keepers as a minority group and might be used as leverage to keep reptile expos going through an exemption from the ban
.
A lot of California reptile breeders depend on these expos to sell their babies. This would hurt many businesses or drive them underground where they do not put tax money into the state anymore, not to mention that it would put the show organizers out of business altogether.
that's just my thoughts on this.
