We have a very small pet store in our town and then the town south of us has a different one. Both are great places to go to observe and see unusual pet’s that you might never want to own. The first time I remember seeing a real chameleon was at the pet store one night after dropping off Princess at ballet. Lil’ Red was super clingy so I decided to take him along with us. I needed to stop in the dollar store to get some batteries for Eldest’s bg meter and decided to pop into the pet store to show Lil’ Red some critters.
He was in awe at the teeny tiny hamsters. We watched a few of them but most were all snuggled up in some sorta cube toy. One was stretching and drinking from her water bottle. We saw rats, mice, guinea pigs, ferrets and hamsters for furry things.
A few aisles over we saw lizards, snakes, skinks, frogs, and the chameleon.
A cage with birds were on an endcap then we saw tanks of fish. I was quite amazed that there were no kittens, dogs, chicks, or bunnies to be had but tons of foods aisles.
If you do not live near a zoo or do not have hours to spend, then visiting a pet store might be a great option for your family.
