We have had exotic frogs for 15 years. COVID  greatly affected their availability and we found the species we know and love, nowhere to be found. So... we  made some changes. Thanks to the generosity of Patrick from The Reptile Depot in Whitehall , we were temporarily hosting 11 species new to us : including lizards, turtles, a tomato frog and  Whites Tree Frogs. We hope you had a chance a visit and learn about something different. If not, please come in 2023 and see what wonderful creatures you can meet. We will be open for a 3 day Charity event with animals, food, butterflies, special exhibits, etc.etc.etc. on Memorial Day weekend . Our walk-in ( open every day )  public hours will start on Sat. June 10th at 11:00 am  and end on Sunday August 27th.

      We recommend a great new shop in Whitehall                                         The Reptile Depot                                            You will find tons of supplies and reptiles you won't find in big box stores. Check them out, you won't be dissappointed. Find them on facebook  

      Special thanks to  Country Junction who will help us out with crickets to feed all of our hungry new critters. Visit Country Junction near Jim Thorpe/ a top destination for family fun year round.
