If you have been hearing some unusual squeaking and squawking coming from the Showgrounds this week, don’t worry, you're not imagining it.
It's because Australia’s Biggest Wildlife Expo has rolled into town, visiting Adelaide for the very first time!
The Wildlife Expo hopes to give visitors the chance to see and interact with the wilder side of the animal kingdom, while also educate future pet owners on the best way to care for your unusual pet.
The hall will be lined with displays, exhibits and stalls on every wild pet that you can think of and hosted by pet suppliers, breeders and animal health care professionals. Every half an hour there will be live demonstrations, with animals and experienced handlers who might just be willing to let visitors have a cuddle with their furry, feathered and scaled stars.
You can even take home a new pet and have a totally wild time living with them! There will be animal experts on everything from sugar gliders to carpet pythons, and will be wandering around the hall to help visitors learn everything they need to know about taking home their own unusual pets; including information on licensing laws, where to access appropriate care and all of the equipment you may need.
If you are in need of a bit of a creature cuddle, you might just be in luck. The expo will have a menagerie of friendly faces that visitors can pat, cuddle and kiss (if you so desire) including koalas, baby crocodiles, monkeys, snakes and frogs!
If you aren’t so keen on taking home a new friend, there will also be a range of representatives from various animal and native wildlife rescue organisations educating guests on what to do if they find an animal in trouble. Trained vets will be on hand at the Expo to make sure that all of the animals (and humans!) are safe. Guests can even speak to the state's best animal trainers for tips and tricks on keeping their usual pal under control.
The Wildlife Expo will be held at the Wayville Showgrounds from 10am-5pm on Saturday, May 14 and 10am-4pm on Sunday, May 15.
Tickets to the Expo are $10 for Adults and $5 for Children. Alternatively, you can get a $25 Family Pass for two children and two adults. More information can be found at the Wildlife Expo website or by following the event on Facebook!
