Welcome to our site! Here you will find a collection of the information we have gathered from our experiences while raising and breeding insects, reptiles, and amphibians that are not commonly kept in the pet hobby.

In addition, we are here to supply you with your very own uncommon pets, as well as all the tools, supplies and information you will need to ensure that they thrive in your care!

And we are continuing to expand the variety of pets and supplies we have available all the time. We have Ghost, Peruvian Leaf, Giant Asian, Golden Giant Asian, African Flower, Grizzled, and Orchid mantis oothecae incubating now, so please, check back often to see what is newly available!

We provide specific caresheets on the site for each species that we offer, written directly from our own experiences raising each species and other information we have gathered from the amazing hobbyists we have met along the way!

Cheers,
Sarah and Eric
