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!

This Weeks Deal: Juvi Albino Corn Snakes!

Most commonly known as a Corn Snake, the red rat snake has slithered its way into our hearts and our homes.  In a totally Non-threatening kinda way of course! ;-P  Becoming one of the most popular choices for beginner snakes alongside the ball python, Corn snakes have made a solid name for themselves with their docile nature, moderate size and beautiful colors.  Unfortunately their silly name wasn’t given to them because of their love for popcorn or corn on the cob, but instead, the name "corn snake" is a holdover from when farmers kept harvested ears of corn in a wood frame and rodents came to eat the corn, and corn snakes came to feed on the rodents.  Pretty gnarly circle of life huh? 

After many generations of selective breeding, domesticated corn snakes are found in a wide variety of different colors and patterns, about 45 generics to guesstimate.  Here at Prehistoric Pets, we have just about every general color morph you could ask for.  You have options for separate snakes or for breeding groups depending on what morph you’re looking to own. Luckily for all soon to be corn snake owners, we are hosting a GREAT deal on ALL our Juvi Albino Corn Snakes WITH starter kits!  That’s right, come in this week, save $61 and walk out with your corn snake AND everything you need to house him all in ONE quick and easy stop.  Included in the package is your snake, 20gal long glass enclosure, UTH, Thermometer, 8qt Aspen, water bowl, hide and admission into our infamous Reptile Zoo!  If you thought it couldn’t get better…for an additional $85 you can UPGRADE your enclosure to the 33x16x16” Critter Condo!  O.O !

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!
