I love this place and what they do....they are amazing! They took in one of my turtles that was getting beaten up by my older male turtle. They allow me to visit and share with me all that is new everytime I go and they have a great selection of plants. They love all of their critters....

As someone who relates to the reptile and loves them I am happy to support the Crazy Critters. I go and buy plants as often as I can to help and will do more as I can. I Believe in the Cause and think the owners are hard working and really care about the animals they care for.
