The only one i could think of off the top of my head mate would be Crystal Palace Reptiles.There are a couple of good ones elsewhere but they would be on the overhead train.One is Cold Blooded in Rainham Essex and the other not as good but still worth a visis it P&M aqautics in Crews Hill Enfield.

firstly aquasplash is what i would call an average reptile shop. dont get me wrong im not slating it i have been there many times. i would trust the animals bred by members of thier staff more than the ones in the shop though. they dont often have in much in the way of the less ordinary stuuf as i would call it mostly just run of the mill. the staff are knowlegeable and very nice people.
however if you got the train to reading you would be up sh*t creek without a paddle as they are located in harehatch which is a fair way outside reading itself and as far as i know has no train station. it would probably cost you more than 20 quid each way to get there from reading station.

that said if you were heading that way you could get off the train at wokingham before you got as far as reading and it costs about 8 quid to get to jurrassic pets from there. i would prefer to go there personally.

who knows you could make a day of it and go to both.

one other place you could go is pauls reptile den in potters bar. i think there is a tube station no to far from there. its fairly small but well worth a visit.

Ok; I heard Aquasplash's animals were always in great condition and well cared for, and what you said about genuine and knowledgable staff; I was gonna go there for my geckos (in a car!!) but I'm gonna try the one in Wokingham too; thanks for that!
