to be honest they had hardly anything, compared to what they have on their site :(
That is because there's a separate section housing lot's of reptiles that isn't open to the public. I think it might be their reserve or mail order section, which is probably where the majority of their business comes from. I have to say they were very helpful when it came to advice on housing Cresties.

i went to see their cresties, and leos, and i have to admit i did see a stunning leo.. but not much, compared to the site..
lots of wood bark etc etc though.

But I see that as a good thing. If the equipments on show more then the reptiles themselves then I reckon they've got their priorities right when it comes to their husbandry. Apparently they'd gotten Cresties in about two or three weeks back and they went out just as quickly. So as far as the Cresties are concerned you really need to get your foot in the door before the next batch arrive. It's the same story I've had with a couple of reptile shops.

And some of us press our little noses up against the windows, sigh, and then get told off for scaring the live stock. :lol2: I've only ever seen one really decent display type reptile shop in my travels and that was in Camden. I haven't even seen a Cresty in real life, what a sad life I lead.
