Geckoholic Charity Auction in Progress

Right now there's live bidding on 64 items in our fundraising auction in aid of Danielle Stevens of Geckoholic, who lost everything in a fire earlier this month. Some amazing members of our community have donated a bunch of beautiful animals and items to help get Danielle back on her feet.

Show Me Events This Weekend

Our event system debuted last weekend at the Tinley Park NARBC. Hundreds of attendees around the venue used our interactive vendor list and map to find exactly who and what they were looking for.

Today we are excited to announce the addition of the Show Me Reptiles & Exotics expos to our event list. Show Me's expo locations include almost two dozens states. This weekend there are four such events in Kentucky, Georgia, Rhode Island and Iowa. Check out our event list to see who will be vending these shows.

In addition, we have another kind of event starting this Friday. In our forums, we are hosting our second fundraising auctions in aid of Danielle Stevens of Geckoholic, who lost everything in a fire earlier this month. Some amazing members of our community have donated a bunch of beautiful animals and items to help get Danielle back on her feet.

Be sure to visit the MorphMarket Reptile Community forum to donate, or on Friday, March 25th to take part in the auctions.

MorphMarket Events gives the herp community a calendar of industry expos and other events with rich vendor listings.

This a tool to be used both before AND during events.

It will help you answer questions like:

  • What expos are happening near me?
  • Who is vending at this expo?
  • Where are they located in this huge room?
  • Who can sell me a species that I'm looking for?
  • What do the parents of this animal look like?
  • And more!


Vendors and Event Organizers, please read our FAQs which explain how you can register.

We talked about MorphMarket NFS quite a lot pre-launch, but we didn't say much about this one. We hope you enjoyed the surprise.

Try it out now!

NARBC Arlington this Weekend

Come visit us on our "home field" at NARBC Arlington this weekend. We will be unveiling designs for the Morphpedia project at our booth. Come ask questions and give feedback. We are really enjoying the shows: meeting and hanging out, listening and taking notes.

Also today we've added Red to our shirt line up. Green is getting rotated out, so grab it quick if you want it at https://shop.morphmarket.com. We should also have license plate borders and koozies by the end of the month.

Daytona Bound!

John is Daytona bound! Can't wait to hang out with reptile family at the National Reptile Breeders Conference. I'll be spending about half the weekend manning the MM table solo, and the other half walking the room. Please seek me out and bring some feedback -- the good, bad and ugly.

Schaumburg Expo Summary

Last weekend at NARBC Schaumburg was a great investment of our time. We got to meet many folks face-to-face who live in a different part of the country from our usual stomping grounds (pictured here with boa breeder John Chausmer).

In addition to helping at our booth, I did my best to make it around to all of our sellers who were there. Thank you for taking the time to answer my questions and provide feedback and input on our business. You help me understand how you use our site, how do you benefit from it, what is frustrating, what's important, and what we need to do next. I came away with 13 pages of notes from probably more than a hundred conversations. We have some super exciting projects that we are working on, and I am even more excited now.

I look forward to meeting more of you this year at expos in other parts of the country, and of course in Tinley Park in October.
