I found a new place to buy my rodents for Lilly and I’m in LOVE with them!
They’re called Glacier Rodents, and if you live in the Seattle area, you gotta check them out.
Their prices are amazingly low. Large rats are 3.50 each, and sold in very manageable packs of 5. Local pet stores are selling the same size rat for $9. The animals are very fresh and clean. So much better than the disgusting freezer-burned awfulness they sell at Petco and Petsmart.
The literal ONLY downside is you have to order over the phone, but they’re extremely nice. It’s a small family run business. Billy, the owner, took my order personally, and even asked what animal I was feeding and how old/large she was; to give me the best recommendation. He’s even emailed me after I received my order, making sure I received it and asking how long it’ll last me.
The best part, is if you live in the Seattle area you don’t have to pay for shipping! They have a drop-off site on the east-side! It’s a lovely exotics hospital that they have an arrangement with. You can just drive in and pick them up yourself, no extra charge.
Seriously, if you live in the Pacific Northwest; give these guys a shot. I couldn’t be more happy with them.
You made my day :} Thank you!!
Any fellow reptile keepers have awesome display enclosures they’d recommend?
I’ve been looking at getting a snake specialty cage for my ball python and future carpet python. Animal Plastics has great deals going on at the moment… but i like the look of the Boaphile cages more… and then there’s Proline who’s local and UGH I can’t choose!
