 Black Jungle Terrarium Supply wants to send a big THANK YOU to all the folks who worked so hard on the First Annual Orchid and Tropical Show.  We had a great time participating and we hope we inspired others to want to build their own orchid chamber or dart frog vivarium.  Everyone was very nice... from the customers to the volunteers to those who worked behind the scenes.  We hope to be invited back and look forward to making this an even better event year after year!
