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.

If You Can’t Stand the Heat

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.

Monitoring Monitors

Stocking monitors, a large and highly variable group of lizards, can increase a store’s profile in the pet community.

Keeping Chameleons

An Old World species, chameleons continue to captivate the minds of reptile enthusiasts and casual observers.

Profiting From Backyard Safaris

Well-intentioned people who find an animal in the yard and want to keep it as a pet can become life-long customers.

Supplementing Herp Diets

Providing pet herps with a properly supplemented and well-balanced diet helps prevent common illnesses and ensure happy hobbyists.

Indoctrinating New Herpers

When a family interested in purchasing their first pet walks into the store, retailers can make them comfortable with helpful suggestions and sound advice.

Reptile Lighting

Lighting is a scientific matter when it comes to herptiles, so retailers must relay this important information to the consumer.
