Reptiles & Amphibians

Are you looking for a pet that is fascinating to watch and maybe a bit exotic? While owning a snake or lizard is definitely not for everyone, there are some great benefits to having a pet reptile. They’re quiet, hypo-allergenic, require little training compared to free-roaming cats and dogs, and designing a beautiful terrarium for them to live in can be a fun pastime.

  • Bearded dragons
  • Snakes
  • Salamanders
  • Geckos
  • Skinks
  • Newts
  • Chameleons
  • Turtles
  • Frogs
  • Axolotls
Pet bird


While pet birds are less common as pets, a healthy, well-socialized bird can be a happy, attentive companion just like some furry friends. Different breeds of birds have a variety of needs and personalities, so you’ll want to compare them by amount of care, length of life, and how much space they’ll require.

  • Budgies
  • Canaries
  • Finches
  • Parakeets
  • Parrots
  • Parrotlets
  • Conures
  • Lovebirds
Tropical pet fish


An aquarium filled with tropical fish can be a beautiful centrepiece in your home and provide a relaxing atmosphere. Fish, like reptiles, are low maintenance compared to larger animals and are a hypo-allergenic pet option. We carry a wide variety of tropical fish, which include:

  • Goldfish
  • Clownfish
  • Guppies
  • Angelfish
  • Barbs
  • Tetras and Bettas
