Lots of 'pet' shops have a reptile area but they are all lacking badly on decent keeping skills so none I would recommend.
Scales and Tails in Leicester is a great shop, Shirley aquatics in Shirley has a great reptile area run by one of the members on here, Shirley aquatics @ Blooms of Bressingham has a fair reptile area, apart from that it's a case of bump into a rep area when you are browsing pet shops :)

Dannylatics visits one that has lots of venemous species, sure he said it had gaboon vipers and rattlesnakes last time he was in. Think he said its in Walsall, might be worth PM;ing him for the details incase he doesnt read this post because by the sounds of it its worth a visit.

Don't think there's a reptile shop in Walsall now, the last one shut down several years ago AFAIK.

That one would be Walkers Aquatics and I really wouldn't recommend this place.

Jarassic Park in Brownhills Walsall. Last time I was in it had a black mamba, gaboon viper which is the shop pet, green and yellow anaconda, java retics and burms, easternback rattlesnake which was massive and others. The shop is only small but has quite a lot of snakes ,a lot of tubs such as false water cobras etc and it is very cheap. The blokes who own it are dead sound as well and will let you hold any of the snakes - obviously not the gabon viper and rattle snake.

how long ago was it that you went ther?, it has changed owners a few times, the shop is of a high standard now i use it weekley for mice and stuff, and am always in there talking to tom and the other staff, full of useful advice and all friendly, lots of stock and lots of variety, probably the best shop in birmingham id say now, but only other one ive been is birmingham reptiles and pets (thats were i got my paraguayan from) and the shop is abit poo tbf, and rather small! also i cant stand the woman in there.


buti would deffinately recomend:

the reptile shop
552 walsall road,

great barr
birmingham
B42 1LR
TEL: 0121 244 6515


15 minute bus journey from the town centre mate, just hop onto the 52 or the 51 and get off at the walsall road, is just before you get to the co-op supermarket
