Here's a Mother's Day idea, kids: Thousands - yes, thousands - of reptiles and amphibians are slated to be on hand at Repticon, a fun weekend convention for fans of geckos, anacondas and such.

Vendors sell serpentine pets, experts provide presentations, locals bring in their own pets - it's basically a big ol' party that slithers.

On the other hand, maybe Mom would rather just go to brunch than be brunch. (Watch out for that python!) Better ask.
