In the recomendation of an article I read here a few months back I went
to Lizards Breath 2000. Let me say that I did not expect much as most
stores are not very good, but this store was incredible. Every herp in
the store had enough room and light and were all well fed. There were no
visable health problems in any of the herps I saw.
It gets better though. The owner was extrememly nice and very
knowledable. He told me alot about the care of iguanas and other
species. He breeds his entire stock and builds all the vivariums he uses
(except some aquarium tanks for the smaller enclosures). As a matter of
fact, he said he would help me build my own. I'm going back next week for
a more detailed discussion on the topic.
For any one interested in buying a herp in NYC I would definately
recomend this store. While I was there a customer came in ho was having
problems with his snake. The owner offered to keep the snake for a week
or two and fatten it up or to exhange the snake.
All in all, it was one of the best Herp experiences I have had.
