Black Greek Tortoise
Depending on the subspecies, Greek tortoises will grow to between 5 and 8 inches. Male Greek tortoises are usually smaller than females, but there are exceptions.
At hatching, most Greek tortoises are no more than an inch in length. They can grow rapidly when overfed and reports of them reaching 4 inches in less than two years are common, but not recommended. Testudo graeca subspecies are known to be some of the longest-lived tortoises. Reports suggest well into the 100s. In the wild, many do not live past the age of 20 due to predation and other factors. When kept safe and under optimum conditions, Greek tortoises thrive and can live to a ripe old age. Some have outlived their keepers. Although they don’t get as large as other tortoises, Greek tortoises still need ample space, especially if they’re being kept indoors
Three Toed Box Turtle
ADULT SIZE: 3 1/2 to 5 inches in length
LIFE EXPECTANCY: 30 to 40 years if bred in captivity and receiving proper care
Three-toed box turtles can live in a wide variety of habitats, from woodlands to meadows, but they are usually found near a water source. They often venture into shallow waters, perhaps more so than the other box turtles. It is not unusual for three-toed box turtles to wade into shallow water to drink and have a soak, more so than most North American terrestrial turtles. They also seek out water and soak for long stretches if they feel safe doing so. Three-toed box turtles are more likely to spend extended time in the water than other box turtles. If their environment becomes too dry, three-toed box turtles in the wild may burrow into leaves or other ground covers to better retain moisture.
Albino African Clawed Frog
African clawed frogs get their name from the three claws on their hind feet, which are used to tear apart food. They can be quite enjoyable for owners to watch, and a proper tank setup for them is fairly simple to accomplish. African clawed frogs can be fun pets to watch, but they’re not meant for handling. As aquatic frogs, their skin dries out quickly when they’re out of water. However, some African clawed frogs can learn to take food from their keeper’s hands, which can be a fun alternative to holding your pet. They do sometimes accidentally nibble on fingers, but this is not an issue because they lack teeth. Due to their hardiness and relative ease of care, they make good pets for first-time frog keepers.
Mourning geckos are fascinating species that are extremely unique. On top of that, they’re a pleasure to own and quite fun to watch!
The mourning gecko (Lepidodactylus lugubris) is a fascinating reptile species with a unique defining trait. These lizards are parthenogenetic, which means that the females reproduce asexually without males. It’s an exciting process that results in tiny little clones! Because reproduction only requires egg-laying, a vast majority of mourning geckos are females. Males do exist, but they’re rare and usually infertile.
Another exciting thing about these lizards is that they can modify their color. Firing up or down allows them to adjust to their surroundings. As a result, the same gecko may appear lighter or darker at different times during the day. Mourning gecko care is relatively easy compared to other species. Undemanding and adaptable, these pet lizards are pretty forgiving and don’t require precise environmental conditions to thrive.
Expert Tip: An important thing to remember when it comes to mourning gecko care is that these reptiles need to eat most days of the week. Generally, the go-to diet plan is plant-based foods twice a week and protein-based foods three times a week. For the remaining two days, fast the lizards for healthy digestion.

Gargoyle geckos reach a moderate size of 4 to 4.5 inches snout-to-vent length (SVL), and 8 inches in total length. In nature, gargoyle geckos will usually lose their tails and end up with a tiny pointed tail nub. “Taillessness” is a normal condition for adult gargoyle geckos. In captivity, hobbyists like their gargoyle geckos with tails, but this requires keeping animals individually and pampered to prevent tail loss. Gargoyle geckos are notorious for plucking off each other's tails and the tailless condition occurs during at least part of the year when this species is kept in groups. This is such a normal phenomenon with gargoyle geckos that they are commonly sold as tailless in the trade without any discount. On the bright side, gargoyle geckos will readily regenerate tails, which besides a difference in scalation, end up looking like the originals. Gargoyle geckos feel comfortable resting in foliage and like to climb wood. Good landscape materials include cork bark sections for vertical and ground level shelters and climbing areas. Dried wood branches angled across the length of a vivarium provide resting and activity areas. Do not overclutter the tank. Leave plenty of open space. Live or artificial plants in combination with wood and bark will provide the security gargoyle geckos need to rest in the open and add a decorative element to the display. Good plant selections include small ficus benjamina, dracaena and pothos
Alpine Newt, Yellow Spotted Newt, and Chinese Newts.
Newts are small semi-aquatic amphibians that look like a cross between a frog and a lizard. Newts possess several interesting characteristics. For example, though they may look cute and harmless, they can be dangerous; toxins secreted through the skin as a defense mechanism could kill a person. ( But not our Newts, we have non-poisonus Newts) Newts also can regrow lost limbs and organs. That ability makes them important subjects in medical studies on regeneration. Also, some newts have flown on space missions.

The physical appearance of the plumed basilisk is striking: it sports a bright green color along its body with black and white streaks along its neck and back. Their physical appearance differs by sex, as they are sexually dimorphic; males have a distinct crest on the back and tail and large plumes on top of their heads, while females typically only have a singular, much smaller, crest on their head. The green crested or plumed lizard is unique in its ability to run across the water with speed and the method it employs to do this. It displays the behavior as a threat response when fleeing predators. High speed is maintained in order to prevent sinking. Potential Adult Size: 36 inches Average Life Span: 8-12 years Dietary Requirements: Omnivorous (mostly insects)
Ornate Wood Turtles

These moderately sized turtles have an average adult size of 8 inches. The painted wood turtle needs constant access to water. The swimming area needs to be shallow. The water level needs to be about an inch higher than the top of the shell. The painted wood turtles are long-lived turtles and can live to be 20 years. When properly cared for, the painted wood turtle can live to be 30 years.
These fascinating little geckos are small and hardy, making them an excellent desert species to bring home. Their intricate patterning and keeled scales give them a very unique and beautiful look–there is nothing out there that is quite like the latticework of viper geckos! One or two viper gecko adults can be housed comfortably in an 8x8x8 enclosure, but we recommend at least a 12x12x12 enclosure for groups of three to six animals, with larger enclosures housing more individuals. Hatchlings and juveniles can scale smooth surfaces, so be sure to secure any small potential escape routes in your enclosure! Males and females of this species can be housed together with no issues!
Albino Pac-Man Frog
$75.00 Sold Out more arriving soon
Native to South America, Pacman frogs are amphibians that are relatively common in the pet trade. As strictly terrestrial amphibians, they are very poor swimmers. Instead, they spend most of their time in a humid environment with damp leaf litter. Pacman frogs get their common name from the popular PacMan arcade game, because like the animated character, these frogs have a rounded appearance with huge mouths. Pacman frogs are not difficult to care for and they make interesting pets. However, for people who like their pets to be active or interactive, the Pacman frog may not be a good match, as it is not the best pet for handling.
