Reptiles/Amphibians/Crustaceans require specialized care. This requires some preparation and research. For this reason we do not sell to children. If you are buying for your child, YOU are responsible for researching your new pet's needs, not our staff. We will happily provide you with generalized care sheet, but you still need to do your research.
Rhonda’s Aviary endeavors to sell only animals in the finest physical health possible. Upon arriving to the store all reptiles are treated for parasites and given a probiotic. We keep reptiles when they arrive for at least a week to watch for good health before allowing their sale; the exception being special orders. Any health issue must be brought to the attention of Rhonda’s Aviary no later than 3 days after purchase. Failure to notify within the 3 days will constitute acceptance of the animal and terminate the buyer’s right to object based on illness or death.
If the animal should die within the 3 days, a necropsy has to be performed to establish the cause of death if a refund/exchange is desired. If the vet deems the death was due to a pre-existing illness, the necropsy price will be refunded by Rhonda's Aviary and your choice of a refund or exchange will be offered.

African Fat tailed Gecko
Bio: African fat-tailed geckos are nocturnal ground dwelling lizards that originate from desert areas in West Africa, from Senegal through Ghana and Togo all the way over to Cameroon. They are one of only a few species of geckos that have eyelids, which help keep their eyes clean in their dusty natural environment. African fat-taileds are becoming an increasingly popular pet, in part because of their ability to thrive in captivity but also because of their docile dispositions and their openness for being handled.
Fat-tailed geckos have a similar body shape to a leopard gecko but typically have a larger head and sturdier feet.
Life Span: When when cared for properly have been known to live for 15-20 years in captivity.
Diet: African fat-tailed gecko’s diet typically consists of crickets and/or mealworms. They may also readily accept silkworms, waxworms or pinkie mice, but these food items should only be given as a supplement as they are high in fat content. Geckos that are under 4 months should be fed about 5 crickets every day and juveniles and adults should be fed about 9 crickets or mealworms three times a week.

Yellow Nigerian Uromastyx
Bio: Niger Uromastyx are robust lizards that come in reddish or yellow variations.These are one of the hardiest lizards available and have friendly temperaments. A uromastyx lizard will very seldom, if ever, bite a human, but if cornered or surprised, or grasped nocturnally or when hiding, it might defend itself with a tail-whip.
Life Span: Maximum longevity records exceed 30 years, but it appears 15 years is more typical. Data indicates that U. Aegyptius, the largest of the genus, also has the longest life span. Field studies show that hatchling uromastyx grow to full size in about 4 years in the wild.
Diet: Niger Uromastyx are herbivores. Most of their diet should consist of dark, leafy greens such as escarole, endive, collards, and dandelion leaves. Light greens, like lettuce, aren’t ideal because they have very little nutritional value. These lizards will also eat edible flowers and fruit, though citrus should be avoided because of its high acidity. Carrots and other vegetables high in Vitamin A should be given only rarely, as too much can lead to Vitamin A poisoning. It is recommended that food be dusted with calcium to prevent bone softening.
Size: Niger Uromastyx are robust lizards that come in reddish or yellow variations. The slightly larger males can grow from 13-18 inches long while females only get 11-15 inches long.
Bio: Green iguanas can found naturally from Mexico to South America. They are reptiles that spend most of their lives in trees. Iguanas are herbivores, eating mostly leaves, flowers, and fruit.

Diet: Fresh greens and vegetables should make up most of your pet’s diet. The food should be chopped up to make eating it easier. Some greens you could feed your pet include collard, mustard & dandelion greens, turnip greens, kale, and romaine lettuce. Vegetables your iguana may like are shredded carrots, peas, green beans & other beans, bell peppers, and squash. There is commercial iguana food available that can make a nice addition to your pet’s diet. Cooked pasta, cooked rice, and whole grain bread make a nice treat for your iguana. Make sure the food is chopped for easy eating.
