Hanging on the Line

Even in the Internet age, the telephone is still an essential tool that connects retailers with their customers, but it can also be a source of both frustration and unexpected comedy.

Crab Fest

The ubiquitous and relatively inexpensive hermit crab is better served by hobbyists—and retailers—who are willing to invest some time and money into providing these creatures top-notch care.

A Walk on the Wild Side

While pet specialty stores can give animal lovers the opportunity to have an up-close encounter with reptiles and amphibians, nothing can replace the wonders of meeting up with these animals in the field.

Avoiding Animal Bites

Bites from a beloved herptilian pet, while relatively infrequent, are always a possibility, so retailers and pet owners alike need to know how to both avoid and treat animal bites.

Crocodile Rock

While the sale of crocodilians in the pet trade is illegal in some places, pet specialty retailers that are not subject to such bans should be aware of the species that make for fantastic pets for capable owners.

Time to Go Big

While various regulations may limit the sale of certain boas and pythons in the pet trade, there are some species that will meet consumer demand for big snakes.

True Chameleons

Perhaps not the best choice for novices, chameleons can make for fascinating, charming pets for someone adept at tending to their specific husbandry needs.

Putting on the Kid Gloves

Children represent a tremendously important segment of pet specialty stores’ customer base. Here is some advice about working with their youngest shoppers.

The Seemingly Empty Cage

Retailers can find creative ways to reveal the shy creatures hidden in the nooks and crevices of its herptile displays.

The Lowly Roach

The oft-maligned roach is here to stay, so retailers might as well profit from the inherent-and perhaps surprising-upsides to having roaches as pets.

High and Dry

Getting a handle on the dry goods segment of the store is key to a retailer's bottom line.

The American Toad

There is no shortage of native toads to be found in the U.S.-for free-but these awesome creatures may still deserve a space among the herptile pets that retailers offer for sale.
