Saturday 9th December Christmas Opening Day 2017


We had our annual Christmas open day on Saturday 9th December. We had all of our animals in the shop available for handling as well as some from our personal collection. We had many families come along, many of which were holding and interacting with our Leopard Geckos, Royal Pythons, Reticulated Pythons, Small Animals and Invertabrates. 


For this year we had a massive special guest, our good friend Garath from " GARGS Animal Parties". They joined our open day at 3pm taking us to the end of the day. They brought down a huge range of rare and exotic animals. We had the plessure of seeing Meerkats, An Indian Fruit Bat, Armadillo, Skunk, Chincilla, Scops Owl and Many more. We had a huge turn out and a fantastic day, A good time was had by all our customers and staff alike.
