Go Back to Jurassic Times at Prehistoric Pets!
Do you have a thing for reptiles? Snakes, lizards, turtles… You get the picture.
If you love reptiles, this unique little pet store in Fountain Valley may just be the spot for you!
Prehistoric Pets is located in a quiet little town of Orange County called Fountain Valley. It not exactly a place where you would expect this kind of unique pet store, but Prehistoric Pets has been operating for over two decades here.
When you enter the pet store the first thing you will encounter is a giant anaconda and a giant turtle. The snake is probably big enough to swallow a rabbit whole, and the turtle is huge enough to carry a baby on! Wow! But since the snake and the turtle don’t move very much, the excitement will come as you look to your right and see a whole pond inside the store.
The pond is filled with all kinds of reptiles and fishes that you’re usually not accustomed to seeing elsewhere. Turtles, giant catfishes, iguanas, and more! It is truly an amazing spectacle. The pet store allows you to buy a cup of mealworms for you to feed the turtles and the catfishes. You’ll usually see all kinds of children here in awe, feeding the fishes as their mothers screams away. A memorable experience in itself!
As you walk into the store, you’ll be greeted by the other reptiles. You’ll see all types of snakes, lizards, turtles, spiders, scorpions, and the like.
Prehistoric Pets can also host a Jurassic Party for kids for their birthdays. You’ll occasionally be encountered with screaming, laughing, and crying kids at these parties. It must be a pretty cool party. Too bad we didn’t have it when we were kids… :)
You can look into their website if you’re interested in buying reptiles online or for more information. Do you have the stomach for this unique pet store in Fountain Valley?
