Bugging Out

By explaining the virtue of some of the coolest pet bugs the industry offers, retailers can win over even the most reluctant customers.

The Human Element

Although animal care knowledge is critical, pet retailers and their employees must understand that selling pets is ultimately a people-business.

In The Trees

These wondrous arboreal pets will capture customers' imaginations and may just lure in new hobbyists in the process.

Tapping the High-End Market

Competition abounds in the high-end segment of the herptile market, but there are ways for retailers to level the playing field.

A Sight to See

Reptile displays that evoke wonder and awe are sure to also evoke sales and a bump in new reptile customers for creative retailers.

Desert Dwellers

Since a desert terrarium is simply deserted without inhabitants, customers need help finding the right animals for this unique setup.

Moment of Truth

Dispelling myths and replacing them with facts comes with the territory for retailers in the herptile segment of the industry.

A Snake of a Different Color

Having an assortment of snakes beyond the standard pet-shop fare will set you apart and give customers amazing, new choices to consider.

Spreading the Health

Dusting a herp's food with a coating of vitamins and supplements can be essential to its health and wellbeing.

Stocking the Pantry

Having a broad selection of live food that meets customers' specific needs will garner a devoted customer base and steady sales.

Sunny Side Up

The herptile market offers a diverse supply of lighting and heating products designed to keep herps healthy and happy.

Tackling Tortoise Sales

Retailers should consider steering turtle-lovers toward tortoises-easy to care for and sturdy, they make for perfect pets

Incredible Invertebrate

Invertebrates-scorpions, centipedes and the like-are gaining popularity with herp enthusiasts and can represent a healthy segment of business for retailers.

Amazing Amphibians

Frogs, newts and toads can make for the perfect first pet and are often the first animals that herptile hobbyists bring home from the pet shop

A Package Deal

Herptiles are known for their love of wriggling, squirming live foods, but the market offers plenty of packaged diets for pets to sink their teeth into.

Assembly Required

Retailers that assemble their own prefab herb kits stand to reap the benefits these kits offer, while avoiding the pitfalls.

Hot Herptiles

These popular herptile species can make up the back bone of a pet specialty retailer’s herp business—all that is required is the right live inventory and the necessary supplies customers will need to be successful.

Terra Firma

Retailers need to be armed with the right tools and information to get their terrarium business on solid ground.

Herp Myths Busted

Retailers can turn disillusioned, misinformed customers into well-educated and responsible herptile owners by sharing their knowledge and expertise.

Viva Variety

When selling pythons and boas, retailers should tap the market for the many variations available.
