Venomous Vendor Liability Form
HERPS Customer Liability Waiver
At no time will any venomous animals be allowed to be removed from their enclosure. All display enclosure must have visible locking mechanisms, and all deli cups must be secured using RED tape and marked “Venomous Reptile”. We will have a room set aside for vendors that need to clean, sex, remove the animal, etc. Snakes must be tubed for sexing, and an experienced HERPS staff member will be on hand.
All vendors are responsible for their animals. We will have several people there that will assist with a walk through the morning before the show opens, and before any other vendors are allowed in. We ask that venomous vendors arrive 30 minutes prior to our normal vendor load in and set up times.
Each vendor is responsible for asking for proper ID, experience of the potential buyer, and should make the decision whether or not to sell to any individual. HERPS will side with the vendor at all times in this matter.
There will be RED tape on the floor surrounding the venomous area. All venomous vendor’s tables must be inside this area. Vendors that will be selling non venomous and venomous must be in this area. Non venomous animals are allowed to be sold from those tables.
Absolutely no venomous animal will be allowed to be carried in or out of the show in a snake bag or deli cup with no tape. No buyers will be allowed to carry the animal(s) around the expo floor. Once a sale is made, the vendor will hold the animal until the buyer is ready to leave the premises. At that time, a security member will escort the buyer out of the building and release the animal to the buyer.
Sales outside of the building will not be tolerated. Animals will not be allowed to be taken outside to be shown to potential buyers, and both the buyer and the vendor will be escorted off of the premises if this takes place.
No venomoids or altered animals will be allowed to be sold or displayed at the show. You will be asked to leave the premises and will be offered no refund.
At no time during the show will a venomous vendor’s table be left unattended. You must make sure you have adequate staff to have your table covered at all times.
Absolutely no venomous animals may be brought into the expo by attendees. You may not have venomous animals delivered to the show if you are a vendor. You both will be asked to leave.
Venomous animals must be displayed in a manner so that they cannot be accidentally dropped or picked up off of the table. Each vendor is responsible for netting if they choose to use it, but it is not required.
No animals can be sold that violate local, county, state, or federal laws. You are responsible for knowing these laws. If there is a discrepancy, HERPS reserves the right to have the vendor remove the animal from the premises.
Me and my 8 year old son had a blast this year at the show in dripping springs! We loved seeing all the venomous snakes, and handling all the non venomous! My son got his first snake, and everybody was so helpful in helping him pick one that was good for his first one! I will definitely be going back, and getting a little something for myself this time. We are beyond impressed!
Super fun event! All the vendors were really nice and helpful, and were all about letting the kids have a fun experience. Lots of neat stuff, everything from frogs, and snakes to a hairless cat and a wolf!
