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
Red Foot Tortoise
Popular Beginner Tortoise $600.00 +
These animals are not high-maintenance, as long as you set up their enclosure correctly the first time with proper lights, heat source, and humidity, and put everything on timers. The main daily chores involve feeding, water bowl changes, and cleaning up pet waste. In captivity, these cute tortoises act shy, hide often, or burrow; this is usually a stress response when around predators. In general, they prefer not to be handled but are docile and easy-going. Despite not having teeth, their beaks are strong, and they can bite. While bites are rare and usually unintentional, they can hurt.
ADULT SIZE: 10 to 16 inches, up to 30 pounds LIFE EXPECTANCY: Up to 50 years in captivity
Crested Gecko Crested geckos are ideal reptile pets for beginners, with simple, easy-to-meet requirements. Because crested geckos are primarily tree dwellers, they make outstanding displays in naturalistic vivariums. Both male and female crested geckos reach a moderate size of 4 to 4.5 inches snout-to-vent length (SVL), and 8 inches in total length. Crested geckos have specialized toe pads that allow them to move along vertical surfaces effortlessly, and their prehensile tails add to their agility. They are also excellent jumpers.
Gargoyle geckos reach a moderate size of 4 to 4.5 inches snout-to-vent length (SVL), and 8 inches in total length. Gargoyle geckos are sexually mature when 15 to 18 months of age, and at a weight of approximately 35 grams. Under proper care, plan for your gargoyle gecko to live 15 to 20 years.
Baby gargoyle geckos are best housed in large plastic terrariums or in standard (20 inch) ten gallon reptile tanks with a screen top. Adult gargoyle geckos should be housed in 20 gallon tanks with screen tops. Larger tanks will allow for better displays. In areas with moderate to high relative humidity, gargoyle geckos will fare well in screen cages. These tanks have the advantage of being light and easy to clean. You can keep one male and several female gargoyle geckos together. Male gargoyle geckos may fight, particularly when in the company of females, and should not be kept together.
Tremper Godzilla Super Giant Gecko
Popular beginner reptile,with simple, easy-to-meet requirements
The Super Giant Leopard Gecko morph has only been discovered in 1999, but is now well-known and popular for breeding impressively large Leopard Geckos.

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.

The blue-legged Mantella is primarily terrestrial, living on the rainforest floor, but it will also climb onto low-growing plants fairly regularly and even into the understory layer of the rainforest. Mantella expectata is a communal frog, living in small groups of interacting individuals. These groups are not territorial, and family groups of blue-legged Mantellas may live alongside one another.

Fantasy Green Pac-Man Frog
We have a rotating stock of different species of the Pac-Man. Don't be shy and inquire if you want a specfic type.
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.
Yellow Spotted Newt
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-poisonous 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.
Pixie Frog OUT OF STOCK
$120.00 LIFE EXPECTANCY: 20 to 40 years if bred in captivity and receiving proper care
This is the world's second-largest species of frog with males reaching up to 10 inches in length!
Pixie Frogs are omnivores and will eat animals that are almost the same size as them. They will only eat plants if they are hungry. They are a sit-and-wait predator that eats every couple of days. African bullfrogs have a strong sense of sight and will eat anything that fits in their mouths. Captive adults are frequently fed earthworms, crickets, super worms, roaches, and mice (feed sparingly). In the wild, these animals are known to eat other amphibians and small reptiles. Bullfrogs are prone to obesity especially those fed large amounts of rodents. It is recommended to feed rodents to Pyxies only once every 2 or 3 weeks. Pyxies under three inches long should be fed daily what they will consume in 15 minutes. Sub-adults and adults should be fed 2-3 times a week in the same manner.
Ornate Wood Turtles
The painted wood turtle, also known as the ornate wood turtle, is a gorgeous chelonian that makes a great house pet. This hardy turtle doesn’t require much to thrive and is a great starter pet especially when you take its ornate appearance into consideration as well. 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.
Vietnamese Mossy Frog OUT OF STOCK
Mossy frogs make amazing display animals — you can use red or “moon” nightlights (not heat lamps) to illuminate their enclosure at night so you can better observe them when they’re most active.
These masters of disguise live in rainforests. Most species are semi-aquatic, living around and breeding in tree holes or rocky pools. Fortunately, this habitat is easily replicated in the terrarium. A glass aquarium with a screen top or a front-opening glass terrarium is both great choices. When setting up the habitat, take into consideration the adult size of the species you’re planning to house. Larger species, such as the Vietnamese mossy frog, should have about 10 gallons of space per frog.
Because these frogs are semi-aquatic, water is important and will play a major role in their enclosure design. The frogs do not require running water, mossy frogs like enclosures with stagnant water — no filtration required! Oddly enough water that is too clean can lead to the development of eye problems. Mossy frogs are insectivores and thrive on a diet of gut-loaded crickets. Other appropriately sized feeder insects, such as wax worms, Phoenix worms, Dubia roaches, and even small hornworms may be offered via feeding tongs. Make sure all feeder insects are dusted with a quality vitamin and mineral supplement.
