  • I see you have animals for sale. Can I order an animal to be delivered to my house?

    Purchasing an animal in any capacity is a huge commitment and it is something we do not take lightly. Therefore we will only deliver an animal to a home if we have approved them after speaking with them about the animal's husbandry and they have followed our guidelines. 


    If approved, we can only deliver animals in the Dublin area only. If you live outside of Dublin, we will arrange for you to collect your animal from our store. 

  • Do you stock live food for reptiles?

    Yes, we have a wide range of feeder insects. We also have frozen rodents in a range of sizes. 

  • Can you deliver live or frozen reptile food?

    We can deliver live insects or frozen food to the Dublin area only. We provide this service every Saturday (as best we can). All orders for live or frozen food placed before 6pm on a Friday will be delivered on Saturday between 10am and 4pm

  • Something is wrong with my fish! What should I do?

    If you bring in a photo of your aquarium and a sample of your tank water to us in store, we can test it for you and help narrow downwhat the problem may be.
