I have been going to Animal Island for YEARS!! I love it there.. and for the person who is complaining about their bearded dragon.. who feeds their beardie 50 meal worms at once?? of course hes/she is going to be sick!! If you dont know how to care for your lizard do that lizard a favor and either rehome it or do some research as to feeding..

Awesome fish sellection and awesome everything else! Don't bother with anywhere else and the prices are outstanding. And also a little comment to Bill G. The guy complaining about his bearded dragon, stop being such a pussy and accept the fact that ur dumbass who fed him that many mealworms and by no means is it Jasons problem or the other guy, so go buy a new one for $25 dollars at AI and maybe this time you will learn about ur pet before you go and kill it. Hopefully you come back to the store so I can run my mouth there... D Bag

Jason the Owner was so disrespectful to me it was atrocious. I had been purchasing crickets and other food items for my Bearded Dragon for four years until The Fat GUY WITH TATOOS sold my sister 50 meal worms, which made my DRAGON SICK and KILLED HIM. They forgot to tell my SISTER that eating too many meal worms will make the BEARDED DRAGON SICK. I called and talked to JASON, and his answer was that STUFF HAPPENS and pretty much too bad! I cannot believe the HORRIBLE SERVICE I received and HOW DISRESPECTFUL JASON THE OWNER WAS TO ME. PLEASE DON'T SHOP AT ANIMAL ISLAND!!!!!!!!! GO to ANY OTHER PET STORE * * * * * * * *

When I called JASON and told him that my Dragon PUKED UP all the Worms over a TWO DAY period, JASON SAID its normal for Bearded DRAGONS TO PUKE. WELL JASON, my Bearded Dragon never puked or got sick until he ate 50 MEAL WORMS. I was told elsewhere that BEARDIES Can EAT MEAL WORMS, but just NOT TOO MANY or else it will mess up their DIGESTIVE SYSTEM.

I would recommend not purchasing any LARGE ITEMS FROM ANIMAL ISLAND or for that MATTER, ANY FOOD FOR YOUR PET.

PLEASE DON'T SHOP at a place that makes Animals SICK and at a PLACE THAT DOESN'T CARE ABOUT Their Customers!

I was so impressed when i went to this pet shop, nice people that run it, knowledgable about every product.. feeder selections are better then I've seen anywhere!!! different feeders that you can't find anywhere else! A family run business that cares... anyone that downs this shop needs to get there head out of there butt and really try them instead of critisizing them in a negitive way...

Animal island is the best store!! Everytime I go there, not only do they have a great selection of fish, but their staff always makes me laugh and feel appreciated, even if I'm only spending a couple bucks on fish food!! They're a family run business and really take the time to talk to their customers and explain everything about their new pet! I bought a fish tank there and all I had to do when I got home was put the gravel in and plug in all the filters, cause they set it up for me!! During that time I found out the father and son own the store and daughter is manager, can't help but like a family run store, and the customer is always number one!! You don't come across that too often!!:)

Awesome selection of cichlids and other freshwater fish, best I have seen in Chicago except maybe Scott's in Westchester. Decent prices and good product selection as well.

Animal island by far my number on choice for all my future pets and pet food. The owner is absoultly amazing and knows his stuff he's helped me with so many of my animals and always has the answers to all my questions. They have the best selections of fish and reptiles and the best prices around and for all you people who think these people don't care about the animals your crazy and need a serious reality check. ANIMAL ISLAND IS THE BEST PETSHOP AROUND!

The owner of the shop seems to have not care about the reptiles or mammals he keeps. The cages are filty, and 1/3 of the animals are sick. Also, the owner refuses to issue refunds for the sick animals he sells.

I live in Mokena and there are many fish stores I could go to that are closer, but Animal Islands is worth the drive. They have The Best selection of fresh water fish in the area, and an extremely knowledgeable staff that is always happy to help you. If you haven't been there yet definitely check them out.

I have been to several reptile specialty shops and then I found Animal Island. I have never encountered such a wonderful, caring, compassionette, knowledgable staff. They are ver knowledgable in all areas of reptiles, fish, & cats. They took such good care of my Savannah Monitor that I unfortunately bought from another reptile house. He was very sick. Those other peple would not help me. Animal Island told me to bring him in. They looked at him, treated him for his illness & gave me advice lke if it were my child, and my pets are my little children! I couldn't be more happier with Animal Island. And they would not accept anything in return for their help. All they wanted is for my Monitor to get well. Thank you Jason.

I have never been to a pet store where the employess were more knowledgeable about fish then the folks at Animal Island pet shop. Since I started going there on a regular basis I have had the most success I have ever had in keeping fish alive and thriving. Don't waste your time with petco or places like that, go to a place where the staff knows their stuff. Highly recommended!

I am an avid freshwater aquarium enthusiast. I recently heard of Animal Island while at another independantly owned shop. The staff was amazing. Very well trained. Also their prices were great. some fish were less than a dollar. and although I'm allergic they had a large selection of hamsters, gerbils, and even chinchillas. oh and nice reptiles and amphibians.... I'm actually going there again today!!!

I believe Animal Island is involved with a puppy mill in Iowa. On August 13 2008, I saw a pale blue chevy truck, license plate number 600 JXC pull up in the alley. It was loaded with puppies, hmm they don't even sell puppies. Also in the back of the very small truck were two small cages containing 4 to 5 full grown dogs in each cage. Puppies were jumping all over the back of the truck and on top of each other. tHE CONDITION OF THESE DOGS WAS AP-PAULING. Please help the animals

Unlike chicago reptile house, which jim nesci recommended to animal island did not try to trick me into purchasing an extremely expensive lizard that required complicated livibg conditions, and the guys at animal island even let the sav. that i purchsed bite him to demonstrate what it feels like

An exotic spread of animials at this location! Great to just come in and browse! They have a very knowledgable family oriented staff. You can purchase items in bulk (feed for all sorts of animals) as well as supplies, fish, lizards and more!! Truly worth the trip

PROS: Bulk priced items!
CONS:
