When herp conferences and Neopets collide...

..you get this. Our featured pet is Researchy the Blue Hissi, who's a herpetological, conference-going herp. Here are her experiences, with all Neopets terms, characters, and other stuff copyright Neopets 1999-2015.

Our heroine arrives at the conference hotel, with way too much luggage and a nervous feeling of excitement.


Preparing for her ranavirus talk. She decided to keep one of the aquatic lizards she was studying.


The reception in the break room. As you might be able to tell, Researchy cropped out the other Neopets for the Facebook photo.


The field herping expedition. A lizard's egg, a snake hook in her hand, a rat snake around her neck, and water going up to where her knees would be if she had knees.


Giving her talk in a previously used classroom. She has some quite nice visual aids for the ranavirus subject.


The behind-the-scenes museum and lab tour. I wonder what kinds of specimens are in that box?


The final day's auction, getting engaged in a bidding war over a stuffed snake.


Here are some things I've done for real conferences:
