What is different about Charlton Reptiles and Aquatics?
You will find that our friendly staff are able to provide free expert advice on all aspects of keeping your new pet. Our knowledgeable staff have many years experience with the animals we sell and this includes staff that have worked in several European zoos in the reptile sections, including London, Stuttgart and Jersey Zoos. We always give away our free care sheets with every reptile purchase. We are there 7 days a week in case you need any help or advice.
We are very unusual in the reptile trade in that we sell only captive bred reptiles and amphibians. Amongst these are animals bred by Mark Harris at Dragon Farm in Portugal, which is one of Europes's foremost captive breeding establishments. Captive bred animals make much better, healthier pets. Wild caught animals virtually always carry internal parasites that in captivity tend to build up in numbers, after the stress of capture and transportation, causing illnesses and big vet’s bills. Because we do not sell wild caught animals our captive bred animals are not exposed to parasites, viruses and bacteria caught from wild animals as is common in other shops. We believe it is wrong to trade in wild caught animals. These animals are easily stressed in captivity and many will die before they reach the shops. This is not something Charlton Reptiles and Aquatics wants to support.
