ADVANCED CARE PALS
The chameleon has over 200 species, many of which have the ability to change color. With independently moving eyes, they can see in 3D and their feet look like little hands; how cool is that?! Add in the fact they can grab with their tail, and you can see how incredible Chameleons really are… and we haven’t even gotten to that lightning-fast tongue. The Chameleon diet consists of various nutritious insects and plant-foods.

EASY CARE BUDDIES
There are several types of dragons, the most popular being the bearded dragon. The bearded dragon is a popular pet because of its easy care in comparison to other reptiles. With the ability to change colors in various temperatures, these super-cuties have been known to wave as an act of submission and friendship.
Originating from Australia, the bearded dragon can grow 20 to 25 inches and has a lifespan of more than a decade with proper care and love. The bearded dragon’s diet consists of mainly insects such as crickets. They eat three times their weight daily. Over the lifespan, the dragon requires an increase in plant-based food. Come say “hi.” They may just wave “hi” back.

Tortoises can vary in dimension from a wee few centimeters to… Wait, what?! Two meters?! Tortoises are the longest-living land animal in the world. Sure, they may be slow and require a bit more work, but one look into their eyes and you can see that tortoises are aware of you and ready to love. Pet tortoises typically require diets based on wild grasses, weeds, leafy greens and certain flowers. Watching Tortoises eat is a joy. How they munch and crunch…it’s adorable. Come down to Dana Point and check them out for yourself to learn more.
GREAT FROM THE GECKO
The crested geckos’ ease of care and unusual appearance have contributed to their exploding popularity. There is no doubt rested geckos are indeed one of the coolest-looking pet lizards available today. This species was thought extinct until it was rediscovered in 1994. How cool is that?!
Crested geckos do not have eyelids and use their long tongues to refresh their eyes and remove schmutz. The toes have small claws which aid in climbing surfaces to which their toes cannot cling. These vivid creatures appear in a variety of stunning hues such as grey, brown, red, orange, and yellow.
EASY TO ADVANCED CARE
We have a variety of snakes available, including corn snakes, boas, and pythons. Please note that our inventory of pythons changes frequently, as we strive to have snakes that are a bit different from other vendors’. For example, the Ball Python is a kind of unique snake we try to always have in stock. Ball Pythons (as well as corn snakes) are the way to go for beginner snake owners.
We also carry normal Morphs, Hypos, Motleys and Albinos, all at great prices. Below are pictures of snakes we’ve had or still have in stock. Slither in or give us a call if your looking for something in particular, and we’ll give you the skinny.

MAKE IT A LEAP YEAR
Frogs can have long life spans — up to fifteen years — making them great, easy-care companions for those willing to make the commitment. Small frogs tend to be a bit more active, while larger ones tend to be more chill. From aquatic, to terrestrial, to arboreal, to semi-aquatic, there are many options to set up comfortable enclosures for each type of frog.
Dwarf frogs are small and great for beginners. Pixie Frogs (don’t let the name fool you) can start off really small and grow up to nine inches! Frogs can hibernate; therefore, you may have to be sure yours has the specific conditions needed for its long sleep.

BIG RESPONSIBILITY BUDS
Iguanas are amazing pets with the proper care and love. Iguanas have a third eye on top of their head in the form of a pale scale — It can’t make out details, but it knows when the sun’s out. Iguanas can grow up to six feet in length, and live for a decade with proper care. These big, green vegetarians demand a lot of attention to stay happy and healthy, however, so maybe skip the iguana as a present for your 6-year-old.
SPIDERS & OTHER LIZARDS
In addition to reptiles and amphibians, Reptiles Reptropolis also has some eight-footed furry friends in their cold-blooded crew. Tarantulas make great pets if you can get past spiders’ bad public relations. The species of tarantulas that make good buddies for humans are docile and respond well to daily handling.
They’re timid and only bite when provoked, and even then the bite will have little irritation. So unless you’re a mouse, you’re safe from these fuzzy carnivores. Our other arachnids include emperor scorpions, which make for some very “metal” pets! Great as specimens, their venom isn’t too dangerous for humans. Still, handle these guys as little as possible to keep both of you happy.
