  • I really love this place. I live near towson, so it’s quite a hike– but if I want anything beyond weekly crickets, I go to them. We found them when shopping for a leopard gecko, and they offer many different kind of pets. They were careful to keep their baby leos on reptile carpet. They have many animals on display in their store– lots of snakes,  

  • The current staff is knowledgeable and helpful. The tanks look clean and animals look well taken care of, even though it does smell lizard-y when you first walk in. I’ve never been to a reptile pet store that didn’t smell, so that can’t be helped. I would recommend checking this place out for good food/supplies for reptiles and fish.
