Not sure if im allowed to advertise shops on ere but i know there is a lack of decent reptile shops around.

So for anyone local(ish) a new shop has just opened on Van Road, Caerphilly in South Wales.

They sell all the usual live/frozen foods, vivs, accessories, lighting, lizards, snakes, spiders etc etc....


Cheers,
Gary.

Little bit of a drive for me then...there is a decent reptile shop in Cardiff, they are in Llanedeyrn Shopping Centre, Llanedeyrn.

Could be worth a visit for you as well, would think thats probably your closest competition.

hmmmm, just got back.

out of a viv of 6-10 baby beardies, only 1 did not have a syump instead of a tail, which is shocking considering they are asking 74.99 for some juves 6-9 wk old i'd say.

couple of corns and a gorgeous kingsnake (that i would have bought if my wife didnt hate snakes) looked ok, but the rest i wouldnt buy.

personally, i would buy cricks if i ran out but no reps (this is just my opinion), and with the other place i'd buy only reps and not cricks :?

since im gonna be bang in the middle of them i hope i can provide both :D

ill pop back in a couple weeks and see how it all looks, i hate to judge on one visit

Yeah i only use shops for crickets/rats now...bought quite a few reptiles from that Dragon Reptiles but they are so much more expensive than breeders.

I'll look forward to seeing your shop...if you can get decent reptiles with decent livefood u'll be made !!
