||Each type of show puts into play one or several of your reptile's specialties: speed, wandering, training, etc. This is indicated on the page for each type of show.
Your reptile's category for a type of show is determined simply by its level in the specialties in question.
However, do note: if a type of show takes several of your reptile's specialties into account, they will not all necessarily be weighted in the same way to calculate your reptile's category. One speciality may be weighted two or three times more than another, for example.
Each show's category depends on the difficulty of the events that make up the show. The more difficult they are, the higher the category of the show will be.
Your reptile can only participate in reptile shows corresponding to its category in each type of show, as to avoid reptiles with mixed levels competing against one another in a show.
Your reptile's category for each type of show is updated in real time when you play with it. Consequently, the more you progress your reptile and increase its level in its specialities for a certain type of show, the more its category in this type of show will increase as well.
