We are the largest exotic pet resource in New England. We have a 12,000 gallon aquarium showroom stocked with fresh water fish,  arachnids, insects and isopods, a small animal department filled with unusual furry friends and, of course, a huge selection of healthy, captive bred reptiles like ball pythons, bearded dragons and other reptiles.

We also have lots of friendly free range critters you can hand feed; a turkey, peacocks, and chickens roaming around outside all day.  Our pond fish always appreciate a treat and our friendly goats are always lookig for you to hand feed them!

Every weekend we offer hands on guided tours of the NERD reptile breeding facility. A once in a lifetime opportunity to get up close and personal with amazing animals you wont see anywhere else. Saturdays and Sundays at 4. Only $8 per person, kids 3 and under are free!

For animal availability, please call or stop by. There’s always something new at the zoo!
