I AM EMPEROR!

Barrrrrrrrrrr Rrrrrrr Clash clash clash!!!  Ladies and Gentlemen, brought to you by the rainforests of Africa, inhabiting your tropical forests and open savannahs, say hello to the Emperor Scorpion!  As one of the world’s largest species of scorpion, averaging at about an adult length of 8in, this particular Arachnid has a life expectancy of 5-8 years when held in captivity.  Not bad for a beginner pet for all you Arachnid lovers.  Low maintenance and small in size, the Emperor maintains a daily diet of Calcium dusted crickets.  These little creatures have been feared for years due to their intimidating appearance (the stinger specifically) and their unique temperament.  Curious about the stinger?  Well, despite their “scary” looks Emperor Scorpion venom is quite mild to humans; it’s often compared to a bee sting!  One of the rules of thumb we teach at our Jurassic Parties is, the larger the claws, the less poison in the stinger.  With that being said, looking at the Emperor you can see how he has great big claws, hence his low potency venom. 

Think you may want to add one of these guys to your collection?  How about starting a Arachnid colony amongst the reptiles?  This week Prehistoric Pets is hosting an AWEsome deal on our Emperor Scorpions, Scorpion set-ups and accessories!  Docile and calm in nature, the Scorpion is able to be handled as long as it is done with MUCH LoVe (as Katy so eloquently shows). 

To maintain a happy and stress-free life for your Scorpion, a set-up including rocks, logs, bark etc.  No matter what substrate you choose, it should be fairly deep (3 - 6 inches) to allow the scorpion to dig burrows. Pieces of bark, flat stones and broken ceramic flower should be provided as hiding spots for the scorpions and luckily we ALSO are hosting a deal this week for ALL sized rock outcrops for your new pet! 

Convinced yet?  Come in this week and check out the BLOW OUT sale we’ve got going on down here, especially on the Emperors!  For almost 100$ you can get a FULL Scorpion set-up, Scorpion AND outcrop to take home TODAY!  While you’re here, stop on in The Reptile Zoo and say Hello to all your friends Twinkie, Frank, Thelma & Louise and MORE!  Welcome home your new Emperor Scorpion today. =D

You won't know what you're missing until you come on in and check out all this week's deals!  Prices are cut thruout the shop and reptiles are waiting to go home with YOU!

Ciao!

LIVE From Fountain Valley, It's SATURDAY!

Talk about CrAzY Saturdays Fans!  I suppose you could say it’s a typical weekend for us, jamming with party families and future Herp owners.  It’s amazing to see the contrast between normal work days and the weekends; the shop goes from cricket quiet to screamin’ loud!  Not that we mind, it’s always so much fun to join in the festivities of all the happy families and also help amateurs become professional reptile handlers and owners.  Wonder what it must be like in the Reptile Zoo while we host our back to back Jurassic Parties?  One word…. HECTIC!  Here’s just a glimpse or two.

WOW that’s a LOT of people!  That definitely makes for a quick, easy and FUN work day for us.  Of course, when we aren’t caring for, cleaning after or checking on all our reptile friends, we are plotting.  Yes…. plotting.  Don’t you remember that tomorrow is the “oh so special” April Fools Day?!  Again, this holiday of pranks is upon us and I’m sure most of you are only counting the seconds until it’s over.  However, we gotta have a little fun here in the shop. ;)  Frank thought he’d get an extra early start and decided to sneak his way into Buddy’s cage while he was out doing a quick photo shoot with some party kids.  Hee Hee, As you can see, he was BUSTED before he could finish the prank!  Silly Frank, Tricks are for kids =P

As for the rest of the animals, they can’t focus too much on the prospect of perfect pranks when they need to have energy for their presentations.  Hey, who knows, maybe THEY are plotting this year’s perfect reptile prank…..o.O.  Hmmmmm, what do you think they will do?  WE MUST BE PREPARED!  With all the “ammo” we could use when working at a reptile shop for April Fool’s, I think maybe we should be more nervous around each other rather than worrying over our reptilious friends.  ;D

**BEWARE of what hides behind your decorations!** ;D

Michelle told Nick to eat on his lunch....this is what happens when you disobey O.O

It’s time to start counting down to one of the years funniest and most anxiety ridden holidays!  Have any cool reptile pranks??  Share them with us!  Have a great weekend guys and see you tomorrow!

Ciao!

Going Once, Going Twice……SOLD!



So have we said enough about our BIG EVENT this weekend??

NO!

There is a HUGE Masquerade Benefit Auction happening RIGHT NOW, on our Reptile Zoo Facebook Page. There are tons of donations from ExoTerra, ZooMed, Repashy, Prehistoric Pets, frequent customers, as well as our own Sam, Katy, Linda, and Mike.



This is our FIRST ANNUAL online auction to support Forever Wild Exotic Animal Sanctuary and The Reptile Zoo. Check Facebook each day this week for new auctions leading up to our special event at The Reptile Zoo in Fountain Valley, CA on October 30th!



The auction has begun, and will end at 9:00 PM PDT on October 30.

All posts should include only your bid in US dollars at least $5 above the previous bid. All negative, defamatory, & off topic comments will be immediately removed and blocked at the sole discretion of Prehistoric Inc. All bidders must be at least 18 years old. All bids are final and cannot be removed, edited, or replaced.

Bid does not include the shipping cost of $55. Animals can be shipped within the United States and to the next Hamm Germany show. If you are not within the US or able to pick-up the animal at Hamm email info@prehistoricinc.com for pricing and availability before bidding.



Please be aware of all local, state & federal requirements regarding ownership of the animal you are bidding on. Prehistoric Inc. is not liable or responsible for failure to meet these regulations.

Any bids after the action close will not be accepted unless an endurance challenge is activated.* The winner will be determined by the highest bid placed before the auction close. If more than 1 bid at the winning price was placed at the close of the auction the first bid wins.

*If 5 minutes before the auction close there is more than 1 bid per minute the auction will become an endurance challenge. The auction will no longer end at the noted time, but when no new bids are placed for 5 minutes. Bidders can only win an endurance challenge by outlasting the competition in a bidding war.



At the end of the auction a payment link will be added to www.prehistoricpets.com to complete the transaction. Users who fail to provide payment within 24 hours of the auction close will forfeit the offer and be blocked from future auctions.

All products/animals are sold as shown and cannot be transferred, traded, or returned.

Many of the items are being bid upon for WAY less than what they are worth, so JUMP ON IT! If the bid goes high, remember that you are supporting not only OUR zoo animals, but also Forever Wild (and they REALLY need your help right now!).



The auction is online only, but for those of you that are coming out to the event, we have tons of prizes, giveaways, and raffle items for you! I, myself, have even donated a couple things for the in-store portion. We all are feeling the desire to help the cause!



So, be sure to check out our auction on The Reptile Zoo Facebook page, place some bids, get in on the action!! Plus, if you are local, don’t forget to stop by this Sunday from 5-10pm for some AWESOME excitement, costumes, and possible free stuff!!

See you there!! (I’ll be the angel, haha)
