Carden Conservatory Feild Trip!

Hey guys!

We love it here at The Reptile Zoo when we get to have fun and teach the young ones about all of our amazing animals!  This morning the Carden Conservatory came for a visit from right down the road in Huntington Beach!  The kids held some smaller ball pythons to warm up to our friends here and then in the end they all got together to help their teacher hold a really big burmese python!  Kids are always so much fun!

If you didn't know, we do school assemblies all the time with amazing hands-on presentations and we even have kids come here to do their own feild trips!  For more information please go to or just give us a call!

or you just come on down to the Pet Expo this weekend at the Orange County Fairgrounds and see us!  Get your picture taken with a giant snake and pick up some information about planning your own educational event or presentation!

We look forward to seeing you there!

Worldwide Visitors!!

Today we had some awesome guests come visit us, all the way from Bangkok, Thailand!  Jade and Ken Vanichvirulh and their family had a blast getting up close and personal with tons of reptiles, even our very own Twinkie!  This is a vacation they will never forget.

We also had fellow reptile-lover Tyler Shanley, from Las Vegas.  He was thrilled with our vast collection of snakes.  "Very cool."

Thank you everyone for visiting The Reptile Zoo, and have a safe trip back home!

Jurassic Fact of the Week!

JFW time! 

So besides being an AWESOME place to have your birthday party...Prehistoric Pets is also an awesome place to LEARN!  We do many educational events both here at the zoo, and off-site.  There are many to choose if you are interested, check out the Jurassic Parties tab on this page.

If you are a teacher, we recommend our Classroom package which includes a one-hour, hands-on presentation with 12-15 animals.  We come to your classroom of 30 or less and spread the reptile knowledge!  (and if you are a student...tell your teacher!)   :-D   Also, we can give presentations here at the zoo, for a Field Trip of around 30 guests.

If it is a large group of students...we can do assemblies. They include the same presentation, a few more animals, and a special 20-minute hands-on period at the end.  We EVEN do special events, such as science fairs, where we can set up a booth for everyone to come see, feel, and learn!

So if its knowledge you seek, please don't The Reptile Zoo and we will save the day!!!

What a Tip!!!

So just now a customer came into our shop with a super cute Savannah Monitor! He asked us if we would take it in and give it a good home, which of course we would, and then he told us the craziest story ever! He said he was sitting on the street playing his guitar with his guitar case open in front of him for tips, when out of nowhere someone dropped this Savannah in his tip case and ran away! How crazy is that?! So here are some pics of our new friend Gibson (apptly named) Hope you enjoy!


Love you guys so much!

Leopard Gecko Eggs!

Hey Guys! Here's an exciting Reptile Zoo story! This morning, right when we opened the Reptile Zoo it was full of kids! They were holding and playing with our pets when all of a sudden someone yelled, "HEY ARE THOSE WHITE THINGS EGGS?" and sure enough, right there in one of our display cages were 2 perfect leopard gecko eggs! I can't even believe how fast that happened! I had just been in the cage 2 seconds before! That, my dear reptile friends is the true miracle of life! Amazing! We set the eggs up as swiftly as possibly and now we just sit back and wait for them to hatch! It's all so very exciting! much love xo.........................Savannah
