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.

Live Fuel

Because most popular pet herptiles require access to live insects, fish and/or rodents, it is important that retailers stock these food items.

Supplemental Sales

Retailers can ensure that herptile owners have all their pets’ nutritional bases covered by encouraging the use of supplements.

Trending Tortoises

As tortoises grow in popularity with today’s pet owners, retailers need to stock up on–and get familiar with–the supplies that tortoises need to be healthy and happy.

Heat & Light

To help customers achieve the right lighting and heating in reptile tanks, retailers need to understand the needs of specific species and what the options are.

The Gateway Herp

Amphibians are remarkably fascinating creatures that are a joy to own and care for. Selling them can be equally rewarding.

Along Came a Spider

Everyone wins when retailers highlight the rewarding, fascinating and enthralling aspects of owning pet arachnids.

Selling Responsibly

Selling herptiles comes with a burden of responsibility that retailers need to embrace.

Fast Food

Packaged convenience foods can be a boon to herptile owners and the retailers who sell to them.
