My best friend in the world sam has all sorts of animals. She has reptiles not to mention amphibians as well as spiders of odd colors as well as sizes… My adolescents just adore going over to her condo as well as playing with her “adolescents” a.k.a. her critters. when Sam called me yesterday all excited, about this brand new reptile store in town that opened up I didn’t certainly see myself going. However, the more she talked with me, the more I started to imagine it would be a good site to take the kids eventually. Well, eventually came sooner rather than later when I had to cancel their zoo later do to the extreme heat wave going through our area, then there was no way I was going to walk around in unpredictable temperatures close to 108 with four young kids as well as no a/c unit with me. Instead, I told them the people I was with and I were going to the reptile store to look at reptiles instead, however of course, Mackenzie went along for the ride of course. We got to look at all the tortoises, turtles, lizards, snakes as well as bug while staying air conditioned. The little ones had a good time as well as I stayed cool as well and comfortable. The staff was so knowledgeable as well as friendly. They took out some of the bigger critters as well as let the adolescents pet them. The little ones fell in adore with this massive lizard. When I found out that he was a rescued reptile as well as wouldn’t be getting any younger than he was, I made the decision the people I was with and I would take him home that day! Sam helped us option out all of the heat lamps as well as stuff that he would need. I just wanted cool air, I never thought I would be getting a lizard too.
