ILLExotics is a Family Owned specialty shop with a goal and focus to provide quality captive bred exotic reptiles and healthy houseplants from around the world to our customers. We have over 10 years experience and education in horticulture and herpetology, specializing in growing tropical plants from aroids to orchids, and fauna ranging from chameleons to dart frogs and invertebrates. ILLExotics carries a range of high quality live and frozen feeders as well for your animals diet and enrichment! We offer a different experience than the big box store and are not your average reptile shop… All of our reptiles and amphibians are captive bred in house, or by other reputable and vetted breeders. WE REFUSE TO RETAIL WILD CAUGHT ANIMALS, PERIOD.
We strive to re-create each animals native home with bioactive habitats, growing live plants, and offering a mentally stimulating habitat thus providing a great quality of life for our animals. Our business philosophy is to not only provide quality animals and plants but to educate our customers on their new exotic acquisition. We don’t just sell any reptiles, as we have great attention to urban sustainability – Meaning any species of animal we work with is suitable for living in a home or apartment comfortably in a habitat and will NOT sell the following:
Aquatic Turtles, Iguanas, Monitors, XL Snakes, XL tortoises, venomous, Endangered or native species to Pennsylvania. Please think twice and educate yourself before acquiring these animals listed for 99% of them are not taken care of properly and need a zoo sized habitat to live a healthy life. We take pride in caring for our reptiles and work closely with and supply some zoos and aquariums across the nation with top quality habitat design and sustainable captive bred reptiles.
