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.

Show and Tell

Retailers can attract customers and stimulate sales by creatively building effective displays.

There are plenty of low- and no-heat herptiles available for customers that are turned off by the intense heat many reptiles crave.

Selling Substrates

The topic of substrate is a challenging one, since there is so much variety and a wealth of opinions in the industry.

An Exotic Challenge

Retailers that deal in exotic pets must navigate a jungle of challenges and scrutiny from regulators.
