One of the highlights of the fair was the exotic pet display by my buddy Edshal. Daughter number one had a blast playing with the various serpents and reptiles. Here she is playing with what is known locally as a Balingkarong although this one is called a Blue Tongue Skink from Indonesia and massive!
