After you've filled your Christmas PEACE Box you have a couple options for how to donate your gift.

1) We encourage you to give the box directly to a child or family that you know is in need. This is the most rewarding way to make an impact in your local community and show your neighbors you care.

2) Return your filled box to the Christmas PEACE Box trucks at Saddleback Church, in Lake Forest at any of the weekend services. The final weekend to return your filled boxes is December 1st and 2nd. The church will then distribute boxes to children and families in the local community.

3) Return your filled box to The Reptile Zoo where we will both deliver boxes to Saddleback Church for distribution and provide local deliveries in our community. The final weekend to return your filled boxes to The Reptile Zoo is December 15th and 16th. To show our appreciation for your gift to those in need in our local community The Reptile Zoo would like to offer you a complimentary admission to enjoy our exhibits on the day of your filled box delivery.

Fred-lits?

 

Hurry!  Before its too late!

We have TWO baby Frilled Dragons on sale right now for $199.99...and they are the cutest little guys.

They are extremely tame, and would make an excellent addition to your family!

Native to Australia and New Guinea, they get their name from the large frill around their neck, which they can fan-out to ward off enemies.  This unusual attribute is achieved by long spines of cartilage attached to the jaw bones.  This is why when the frill "pops out" you commonly see the lizard's mouth open wide!

They are crazy little lizards, let me tell you.  VERY entertaining, lol. 

They eat mostly insects, such as crickets and large worms, and males can reach up to 3 feet long.  When running, frilled lizards can even stand up and run on two-feet!  They make for a really cool little pet, not only because of the frill, but they have a super spunky attitude.

Many of you probably know our beloved shop-pet "Fred" the Frilled Dragon.  He has a permanent residence here, and man is he spoiled.  Everyone loves him, especially for the birthday parties, because he LOVES to climb on top of your head!

So we dubbed our little babies...Fred-lits.  They are SO cute, and showing the same sweet and cooky personality of their friend Fred.

Call, or stop by, for more info...and come check out these lovable creatures!  Remember, Christmas is right around the corner!

($199.99......they won't be here for long!)
