Amphibians differ from reptiles in many ways but most noticeably because they have smooth skin instead of scales covering their body. This smooth skin is permeable to water so most amphibians require a humid habitat to survive and many of the world’s amphibians are semi-aquatic and often found near water. Some of the most popular species of pet amphibian are the tree frogs such as the Whites Tree frog, also very popular are dart frogs as they are active by day and brightly coloured making them fascinating occupants in naturalistic and bioactive live planted terraria.
WHY CANT I BUY ONLINE?
Because we are so committed to animal welfare we feel it would be inappropriate and irresponsible to list live animals as if they were just another product. We ask that you contact the store on 01276423137 so that we can ensure animals are being sent to a suitable home. You can still purchase animals via a digital invoice or Paypal, we simply prefer the sale of live animals to be a little bit more sensitive than general internet shopping allows.
CAN YOU DELIVER MY ANIMAL TO ME?
We are able to use Walkers Euro Transport (fully insured and Defra registered animal courier) to ship animals anywhere in the UK and to some European destinations. Consignments are collected from us every Wednesday and arrive to you within 24hrs on the next day (Thursday). The charge for this service is £50 per consignment (max 15 animals) anywhere within England and Wales, the cost is £55 for anywhere in Scotland and some selected European destinations.
