JFW...its what we do

 

Many people forget about one of the cutest little critters that we bring to our parties.  They are a big hit in the handling area of our Zoo...several young guests have even named them.

So, for this Jurassic Fact of the Week, what small lizard is covered in spots???

 

LEOPARD GECKOS!   YAYYYYYY!

 

I love them...don't you??  They are so sweet and gentle, and aren't their tails just awesome?  Leopard Geckos have a naturally FAT tail...it not only stores fat, but serves as a huge defense.  When a predator is near, that tail looks mighty tasty, so they usually bite there first.  The Leopard Gecko will POP it off, and run away to safety!  But thats not all.....they then grow a NEW one!  How cool is that?  I want to grow a tail......

Leopard Geckos always get an "Awwwwwwww" when they come out to be handled.  They are adorable, very tame, and usually have awesome colors.  They make wonderful pets too!  These guys are from the desert areas of Pakistan, so they DO need more heat than most geckos, but other than that, its VERY easy.  They eat crickets and worms with plenty of calcium on top, and their little tiny claws are so small that there is no worry of boo-boos!  We have plenty at our shop right now, so come check them out....Christmas is right around the corner!!!

Now isn't that a face you want to take home to Mom???

Looking for the right first pet?

You came to the right place!!

Hello Herpers! One thing we all share in common is our love for Herping or reptiles and amphibians in general, However, not ALL of us are 'Jurassic' Pet owners. Not YET anyways muahahahaHAHA!!

For starters, let's cover some snakes. Although there's a huge variety of them, only SOME snakes are a guaranteed "Mother Approved" for a beginner snake owner. Most commonly owned and known, Ball Pythons come in a few color variations (i.e. Pastels, Ghosts) and can be maintained easily at any age. Also too, there are Corn snakes which come in a variety of color morphs as well making both snakes quite the pet to shop for. =)

Looking for Lizards? Well we've got those too! Small, Medium and Large; these creatures are ones of varying personality and 'pizazz'! For the younger, more cautious beginner pet owner, there are Leopard Geckos. Small, docile and one of the easiest to maintain. Last but never least, we have everyone's favorite, the Bearded Dragon! Starting off as small as 5" long(but a fast grower!), these cute quirky little puppy-like lizards are sure to win your heart!

Made your decision yet? Or are you packed with questions and inquiries? Either way, stop in the store and check us out or visit our online store at prehistoricpets.com and you can email questions to info@prehistoricpets.com.
