These guys are great not only do they have a lot especially fish it's like walking into a zoo. No literally they have a Serval and a 6ft Water Monitor, the large fish and koi ponds make me salivate. I would like to invite the employees and friends of Animal Jungle to join the Norfolk Fish Club to share info on our Wet Friends.

By far one of the best independently owned pet shops I've ever been to. It rivals some of the ones I've been to in Los Angeles, CA. They have a great variety of the common and very rare animals. The prices are a little high, but everything is well taken care of and of high quality. Any ill animals they get in are treated in a timely manner.

I haven't had a single problem with any fish or aquatic invertebrate I have purchased there. They stock everything from nano fish that rarely grow over an inch, to real tank busters that can dwarf the average person. Unlike most pet stores, they warn the customer of their potential size and list useful info such as maximum size, country of origin, and scientific name. Along with the fish, they also have a good selection of plants, rocks, driftwood, filters, substrate, food, and other aquaria products. If you don't see anything you have been searching for, they'll be more than happy to order it for you.

The reptile department is very impressive as well. Alexander the Asian water monitor is always fun to look at. Great food, enclosure, and reptile and amphibian selection.

The bird department is a highlight as well. The macaws can be a little on the forceful side, but the occasional nip is worth playing with the playful and comedic parrots. The smaller birds are usually much manageable.

Overall, it's a great shop that I'm willing to travel to. Great service, great products, great animals. They have frequent sales, and occasional freebies.

Best pet store ever. When grandkids come from out of state it is a must see for them. The Savanna cat steals the show but with so much more to see. Reptile section is full of different choices. Feeding supplies (crickets) seems to always be available for turtles and lizards. Employees are always courteous and helpful.

We purchased sugar gliders last fall and were not properly instructed on dietary care. We were told to feed them fruit and a special juice mixture. When our female got sick we did further research. They are supposed to eat insects, vegetables, leafy greens, as well as fruit. The female and her babies died of malnutrition from poor diet. Store offered a 25% discount on next purchase. Pretty poor service. General manager did not even know they had care sheets that we were never given. Now our male may die because it does not have a partner. They will make no effort to get us a replacement until the fall. Buyers beware!

Animal Jungle is a pet store that sells everything including fish and tanks. They have the store divided by species and this makes it easy to find what you are looking for. The store backs the fish they sell with a replacement warranty. They will also check you fish tank water to see if there if any problems. They have sales people who know what they are talking about. They also sell other pet supplies for cats, dogs and birds.

This is a place the kids love to come to. It is kinda like a minature zoo on top of a place to shop. They have a wide variety of items for any kind of pet I think you could imagine. We bought 3 of our 4 ferrets there and they are a great addition to our family. They have always been healthy. The place is very clean and the store associates really seem to enjoy the animals. It can be hard at times to find someone but checkout is always short and sweet. We will continue to go back.

PROS: Great variety, Unique pets
CONS: Store associates can be scarce at times

I take my son to this store all the time as he is a animal fanatic. We purchased geckos from here and they have a great selection but the prices are little high. I wish they carried puppys at this store and that the aisles where a little more organized. The reptile room is often so crowded you can't get in. I think they need to expand the reptile room since it is definitely the most popular area.

I have been a shopper at Animal Jungle for over 15 years now, and I know i will be for another 15 years. Animal jungle is the place for all your pet needs and the best thing is...its locally owned! One of my favorite things about Animal Jungle is that they accpet credit union discount cards. This credit union discount is $2 off any $10 purchase, and when you spend as much money there as I do, those $2 add up!

PROS: The store is one of the largest Pet Stores that I have ever been inside of!
CONS: Sometimes it can be hard to find a sales person

Animal Jungle has everything from everyday to exotic. This pet store is a zoo and the best thing is it is free. Take the kids or just yourself and explore their wide varity of animals. Sharks, lizards, monkeys, exotic birds, kittens, ponds, frongs, HUGE snakes, you name it they have it. It is nice to just look around and explore with out having to buy anything or pay an admission fee. The staff is very knowledgeable on all types of pets.

I do not think the store is very neat or organized in any sense of the word. The staff is friendly and some of them really do know what they are talking about but others just seem to say things to sell customers something. They do have a large amount of supplies and pets but I do not think that the animals are given the best care that is possible.

PROS: large selection of supplies, lots of pets to see
CONS: not organized, animals do not always seem healthy

Has a large variety of pet supplies and fish. Very big shop. Very hard to get any type of help or questions answered. Their prices are higher than other pet shops around and they are not very friendly.

This pet store has a large selection of exotic animals and pet supplies, and is generally a fun place to visit. However, I generally cannot stand to go into the fish department, as many of their fish (especially the bettas) are not well cared for. The last time I was there I saw several bettas with advanced fin rot, sitting in little cups with maybe an inch of water. We did attempt to buy a snail from them once, but it died before we even got it out of the car due to rough handling by the employee. This store is a fun place to visit and look around, but stick to buying your animals elsewhere.

My kids love to go to this place. I have never been to a pet store that has such a wide variety of animals. It is like an indoor zoo!!! I must admit we have never purchased an animal from here. We generally just go there to look around and see the animals. I have interacted with a worker there. We were thinking about getting a companion for our bird and the sales lady was very helpful when explaining how we would go about introducing a new bird to our current bird. I have purchased a few things for my bird in the place and I was happy with my purchases. Anyway, great place to see the animals even if you are not planning to purchase one right away.

This place has the coolest and the most exotic animals I have ever seen in a pet store. They are one of two places around that I have been able to find a certian kind of pet food. Sometimes my son and I go in there just to look at the animals.

If you are an animal lover, this is the store for you. There are lots of fish, reptiles, small pets, and exotic birds here. Great for kids. The staff could be more friendly, and I would not board your pet here. They do not keep the boarding area clean, and our pets water was always dirty.

I have been a customer for about 20 years. Even when they were a teeny tiny little store across the street in Timberlake Shops. The setup of the store is visually appealing. I like to take my daughter there to see the animals like an indoor zoo on a yucky day. The have the largest selection of items and some pets. However there prices are high on many of them. There turnaround on there saltwater fish are so high, that they end up selling fish that do not survive for very long. It is not my tank, because fish that come from another store live. There is no guarantee on saltwater fish. So I am just out the money. I don't feel that I am being sold bad fish intentionally. I just think that they just push them out of the store so quickly that they don't even realize. Some of their dept associates are very knowlegable. I have even saved myself a trip and called to ask a question and they have been very helpful. If you need one on one help I recommend not going on the weekends. It is a mad house!!!! Go during the week!

I realize the constraints of building-size with regards to pet store animal facilities, however, I was very unhappy with the manner in which ferrets, puppies, and kittens were encased. I believe the business relies on the quick sell of these animals and so they are often squeezed into a smaller facility than appropriate. They ferrets, in particular, were kept in an class terrarium, one level, with no litter box or beds. Approximately 10 ferrets were kept in a 30 gallon tank and that is not nearly enough room for these animals to remain happy and healthy. I was told the store was holding extra ferrets for a "sister store" that they had combined their purchase with. The excess ferrets would be "shipped out" within a week. In the mean time, they were left to step over each others feces and bath/drink from one small water bowl. I will no longer purchase supplies from this pet store as I do not want to support this type of treatment.
