Human Nature

Customers can often be the biggest uncertainty in your business.

Size Matters

Retailers should encourage sales of herptiles as more people downsize their homes.

All For Show

While reptile shows might not be an instant moneymaker, savvy retailers can use them as valuable marketing and bargain-shopping opportunities.

Good Newts

The re-legalization of salamander and newt sales within the U.S. could open up new opportunities for herptile retailers.

Homey Touches

Herptile retailers should be ready and able to help aesthetics-minded customers transform a bare-bones enclosure into an attractive piece of décor.

Selling the Dinosaur

Retailers should take advantage of any opportunity to channel the widespread human fascination with prehistoric creatures into a passion for herpetology.

Shell Game

Whether in giant form or one of the more moderate sizes, the amiable tortoise can be an enjoyable and rewarding pet.

Hidden Gems

For customers looking to venture off the beaten track in snake ownership, sand and rosy boas can provide an intriguing alternative.

Reptiles with Class

Exotic animal retailers have a unique opportunity to bring wonder and new learning experiences into local schools by encouraging and facilitating classroom pets.

Silver Lining

Being well-informed on species-appropriate substrates is key to helping customers maintain their pets’ wellbeing.

The Scorpion King

Despite—or perhaps because of—the aura of danger they carry with them, scorpions can make an intriguing pet.

Ribbit Ribbit

With a well-crafted environment to live in, dart frogs make for a low-maintenance and visually appealing pet.
