A note from Scott Smith
Hello, I'm Scott Smith. Let me start off with a few things about myself. I've been a bodyguard, played semi-pro football, and yes even a pro wrestler. The two questions I get most are... How tall are you? and... How much do you weigh?. I'm seven feet tall and I weigh about 400 pounds. I have had animals in my life as long as I can remember. At 10, I had a collection of toads and salamanders in the window wells of our house. Now that I'm much older, I have had some very cool exotic animals. We have had ring tailed lemurs, lesser bush babies, prairie dogs and my favorite right now are our skunks.
So why is this Scott Smith's All Animal Expo? Well, Lee Watson and I were talking about his show, The Watsons Reptile Swap. He was trying to find a new location to have his show because he had just sold his property. I found a place at the DuPage County Fairgrounds and Lee took me in as his partner. Together we turned it into the Scott Smith's all animal Expo.
They say if you like your job you never have to work a day in your life. I absolutely love what I do with the show. To me it's about educating people. I love the look on a child's face when they find the animal that is meant for them. Please feel free to ask me any question you would like…Even how tall I am!
Yesterday I asked if you wanted to see penguins, otters or kangaroos. I think I left some important information out. The Otters and Penguins would be in a 1500 gallon tank. There would be no hands on with them. The kangaroos would be in a pen. There would be hands-on with them so with this […] Read More
