Due to the lack of stores in the area, it seems like the San Fernando Valley is watseland of people who hate reptiles.  Everywhere you go the stores seem to have a horrible selection of animals and on top of that you cannot tell whether it is a fish store, dog supply store or a reptile store?   What happened to all the awesome reptile stores and the passion you used to see for animals in the San Fernando Valley?   After asking dozens of people involved in the reptile business there seems to be a continual down hill slide in what the reptile community used to be in the area? 

But, how could that be when the reptile expos are booming and the reptile community is growing in sheer numbers? It seems like everyday there is someone turning to reptiles for a companion animal, yet the stores in the SFV are all gone...

If you're like many of the reptile keepers out there, this continues to be a thought that is always in your head.  Reptile keepers most importanly start to worry about how they are going to feed their animals and how they are going to find feeder rats and mice.  Everyone desperatley starts to look for a new reptile store, sometimes traveling 100's of miles to the local store. Yet, when you arrive the selection is horrible and they are out of the feeders sizes you need.   Does this sound like you?!?!  Well, do not worry the Painted Reptile is San Fernando Valley's last standing reptile store and we have everything you could ever think of!  Great selection, great prices and a friendly staff that likes to talk about animals.
