We are the largest exotic pet resource in New England. We have a 12,000 gallon aquarium showroom stocked with fresh and saltwater fish, a bird room where all of our birds are hand-fed and socialized, a small animal department filled with unusual furry friends and, of course, a huge selection of healthy, captive bred 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 jonesing 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!
We pride ourselves on being the go-to source for outstanding care advice for all kinds of pets. With over 25 years of experience working with a vast array of exotic animals, we can teach you how to do it right!
