How do I care for my animal?
You can always ask our staff for information on how to care for your animals.
What feeders do you have available?
This is one of our most common questions. You can refer to our Feeder Menu for a guide to our standard food options for your animals. For special requests or large orders, you can call the store at (972) 596-7350 or message us on Facebook.
What animals do you have available in-store?

Do you ship animals?
The health and safety of the animals in our care is our top priority! Shipping can be very stressful on the animals, and difficult with the climate in Texas. It can be either too hot or too cold for safe shipping of live animals. That being said, we do ship at the buyers expense as long as weather permits. Night time lows must be above 38f, and the daytime highs below 95f on either end for safe shipping to take place. We only ship out on Tuesdays or Wednesdays. The DFW Reptarium primarily uses Texas breeders for our animals to help reduce shipping stress on our end. If you would like to discuss specific animals available for in-store or out of state purchase, please feel free to call or message us.
Why can’t I bring my animal shopping with me?
Why do my animals have to be in their own enclosure for boarding?
The safety and wellbeing of animals in our care is always our top priority. Keeping your animals in their own environment during boarding reduces stress and keeps them happier throughout their stay.
Is it true that you may not sell an animal to someone?
Can you help me with a wild caught animal that I want to keep as a pet?
We do not recommend keeping wild animals as pets for a number of reasons. Our wild Texas animals should be left in the wild, and some even have protections that prohibit them from being kept as pets. If you are not familiar with these regulations and/or are not certified to care for native wildlife, it is best to avoid getting yourself into trouble.
