I agree with Brittney H. I am a Breeder of Boa constrictors and Asian Water Monitors and Recently moved to Deland. I was happy to see that there was a Herp shop in town and went in to check it out. The animals are kept in exo terras which is fine but if you have an animal that requires certain heat and humidity levels, the exoterras need to be modified. These were not.They were completely dried out with no water and all of the animals were dehydrated severely and some had stuck sheds. There was a Gree Tree Python in there that was stuck in shed and was completely emaciated because of improper husbandry. The store does have potential, it just needs someone that actually knows proper husbandry of the animals and takes care of them properly. I also want to add that there was feces in most of the enclosures and it was not new. It was dried out also so it has been in there for quite some time. I hope they take the constructive criticism to heart and take better care of their animals. If they did, they would have a great place and do more business. They have moved since I was last there so I do not know if they improved on that or not. I will go there and check it out. I really hope it is better now. I also read an article about his snakes being stolen. Looks to me like BS. The prices he put on those animals is waaaaaaayyyyy off. Sounds fishy to me. (insurance fraud perhaps)?

All of that is BS, because i worked at animalia pets, we take in pets that people can't take care of and slowly work them back to their former health, not that that is an easy task especially when each reptile has a different personality. The water depends upon the snake, some snakes will just splash the water out and leave it in the bedding so that they can lay in it all day, if you spent the time and watched, you would see that they do it on purpose and literally prefer the water on the bottom of their tank, why, im not sure yet, but my two boas do the same thing at home, they rather constantly be surrounded by water instead of it in a bowl.

I walked into Animalia expecting to see a variety of healthy happy animals like I see at my local pet store Pet Bazarre. Instead as I browsed the store I happen to notice that nearly all the reptiles had no water in their bowls. None of the temps or the humidity were correct for any animal. (Not that the employees could even check because not one tank had a thermometer or hydrometer.) I was very upset to look at each animal and see that nearly all were unhealthy or near dead. The only animal that seemed to be even functional was the huge burmese in the back. And when I asked an employee about a specific lizard that was not for sale (like many of the animals) and she claimed it was hers. The animal was one of the many without a drop of water (and the animal is semi-aqutic and should ALWAYS have a good clean water supply.) When I asked about the animals temps and tried to say what a proper basking temp should be she became very cocky about how I was wrong. Even though I have the same pet at home and he happens to be very healthy and happy. I was completely disgusted with how filthy all the tanks were as well. This store is a complete disgrace to all reptile stores out there and I will never return to it again. I would never recomend this store to anyone unless they were looking for a near dead dehydrated pet. You will spend more trying to save any animal from that store than you spent on your newfound friend in the first place. You're better off going somewhere else.

This pet store is a not-so-hidden hidden gem. Nestled in historic, beautiful downtown DeLand, this store has a small ish selection but makes up for in with their small animals, birds, and many herps! They have netherland dwarf rabbits, mice, rats, gerbils and spiny mice, plus budgies, lovebirds, parrotlets, finches, cockateils and bourkes parakeets, most of which are hand raised, on one side of the airy store. The other side it stuffed with herps-leopard geckos, ball pythons, corn snakes, red eyed tree frogs, fire bellied toads, spiders, bearded dragons(juvie and adult) and more!
It's family owned and operated by some of the nicest people who are more then willing to help out with any questions or problems you may have.
Be sure to check them out next time you're in Deland!
