Zookeeper Exotic Pets & Supplies, Austin TX

Postby joneill809 » Tue Mar 05, 2013 11:17 pm

I've been meaning to post for a while about Zookeeper Exotic Pets & Supplies in North Austin for a while. They're a small shop in a strip mall in North Austin @ 183 and Burnet - easy to get to, and man do they have a selection. Their animals are always well tended to and their staff is quite knowledgable. Everyone that I have met that works there is always engaging and interested in talking about what animals they are keeping. Truly passionate hobbyists that are in the business they love.

Whether you just want to check out their resident sloth, the blue tree monitors, bearded dragons, ferrets/prairie dogs/hedgehogs, or the dozens of arachnids, this is THE only place I have found in Austin that regularly stocks a variety of darts, terrarium plants and yes, even melanogaster cultures. I am always impressed with how healthy their animals look - no skinny frogs here.

For new hobbyists they have prebuilt vivariums already housing frogs. They always have interesting vivariums moving through the shop - a few weeks ago they had an old hexagonal curio cabinet that someone converted into a vivarium. Cool, quirky stuff.

Check the place out if you are in North Austin.

Hey Jim,
I think I met the owner last year at NARBC, nice guy.
He bought some mint terribs from me were they on display for sale?

Hi Beth! No I did not see them but I only get over there about once a month at most so it's likely that I missed them. They stock a variety of darts which is influenced by what is available locally. I have sold them some azureus, but I have also seen auratus, yellow galacts and pumilio at any given time. I think it's neat that they support the local community and locally bred frogs.

Bump for Lee in Georgetown. Lee these guys stock melanogaster locally along with plants and darts periodically.
