Tarantulas, emperor scorpions, pet rats, roughneck monitors, the Burmese python, the California king snake, Chinese alligators, gecko Lizards, and birds of prey will all  d on show for squeemish to face their phobias.

There will also be 50 dog breeds, pygmy goats, llamas, kune kune Pigs, zwartsable Ewes, guinea pigs and donkeys.

And the best thing for all canine owners is that you can also bring your dog along free of charge.

But it might be best to keep them away from the Dublin Championship Cat Show – a 2 in 1 Show run by  SABCCI  (Siamese and All Breeds Cat Club of Ireland) and the GCCFI – Governing Council of the Cat Fancy of Ireland. 

A first for Ireland, the show will allow feline fanciers gaze on at both pedigree cats and household pets.

The Pet Expo takes place tomorrow, October 15 and Sunday at the RDS Simmonscourt Dublin 4. Family tickets €25 - including two adults and two children. Dogs go free.
