Reptile/Amphibian/Crustacean Warranty


*Reports for losses/illnesses must be made within 3 days.

*You must bring in the original, dated receipt.

*Cause of death must be established by a veterinarian.


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.


Rhonda’s Aviary makes no warranties as to the temperament of any animal it sells.  As such, by tender of the purchase price, the buyer is deemed to have assumed the risk of any danger posed from actions, including but not limited to, bites, illness, scratches, or lacerations caused by the animal. Please be sure of your purchase, we do not buy animals back if you change your mind about a purchase.

Bearded Dragon Baby 

Bio: Bearded dragons make a great pet reptile. They don’t get too large, eat a wide variety of foods, are active during the day, and are gentle. These friendly animals are captive bred, have limited care requirements, are readily available, and inexpensive. A  bearded dragon can be a great addition to your family.

Life Span: 8-10+

Diet:  They are omnivorous, eating both insects and plants.

Size: These reptiles grow to be 16 to 24 inches long.

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.


Size: 9 inches

Chinese Water Dragon

 Water Dragons extremely pleasant to care for. They are beautiful to observe given their attractive bright green color, and once they are used to your presence, they are generally tame and easily handled.

Diet: Chinese water dragons eat a variety of live food items ranging from crickets, mealworms, king mealworms, waxworms, earthworms, grasshoppers, butterworms, locusts, feeder fish, pinkies and fuzzies. Many care booklets say that water dragons eat some fruit and vegetables. You may try to offer finely shredded vegetables and small chunks of fruit, but these items should make up only about 10 to 15 percent of your dragon’s diet.

Red Headed Agamas


Bio: Agama species are widely spread throughout areas of Africa. Agamas are most often found in semi -dessert or scrubland environments. The Spiderman agama is relatively new in the U.S. pet trade and is proving to be very popular due to its intense red and blue coloration and overly active personality.

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. They also excel at doing nothing and conserving energy. Iguanas will spend a great deal of time basking, resting, and watching.

Life Span: 20+ years

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.

In addition, also some herbal food (blossoms, small-rasped vegetables, no fruit or fruit puree. 2 - 3 x per week minerals and vitamin

Size: 2.5-3.5 feet


Tokay Gecko


Bio:  Heavy-bodied and nocturnal, these tropical animals have a reputation for being aggressive, hard to handle and apt to bite. However, they can be the ideal captive for a patient geckokeeper. They are fascinating to observe, and with a little invested time, they can be tamed into tractable little beasts.Tokays are intelligent, reactive and inquisitive. To tame one, you have to convince the lizard that you mean it no harm. Otherwise it will try to defend itself or flee from you.


Diet: Opportunistic feeders, tokay geckos consume just about anything they can overpower. In the wild much of their diet consists of insects and other lizards. In captivity they do well on a mix of crickets, mealworms, roaches, waxworms, hornworms, silkworms and small mice. Some captives can be trained to eat defrosted fuzzies from tongs.


Life Span: 10-20+ years


Size: 15 inches long


Long Tailed Grass Lizard


Bio:Long tailed lizards are active lizards and are very agile and fast. At the same time, they can be quite tolerant of gentle handling (very careful gentle handling is required though, and never grab them by the tail). They can usually be housed in small groups, though males may fight so one male to a tank is a good idea.


Diet: Crickets can be the main diet for long tailed lizards, supplemented with mealworms, waxworms, butter worms, and flies for variety. All prey should be gut loaded prior to feeding. Adults can be fed several crickets every other day or so, while juveniles can be fed daily. Dust prey with a vitamin and mineral supplement once a week.


Life Span: 8+ years


Size: 10-12 inches



Cuban Knight Anole


Bio: These lizards are arboreal and spend most of their time up to 15ft. high in the trees. Their normal color is green with yellow patches. When they are dark green to brown they are stressed or unhappy. If they are in a territorial or aggressive mood they turn a reddish green, if so, you should stay away from them. They are not good pets for children. They are very amazing and fascinating reptiles, but they are for the more experienced reptile owner.


Diet: Butterworms, mealworms, crickets and waxworms all are good choices to feed your Knight Anole. Make sure to dust you feeder insects with a calcium/multivitamin supplement. They have been known to eat fruit as well, so you could leave some baby food fruit on a dish for them.


Life Span: 10+ years


Size: 20 inches




Fire Bellied Toad


Bio: The Fire Belly Toad is actually a frog and makes an easy-to-care for pet. These beautiful amphibians are found in the highlands and rice patties of China, Korea, and Southern Russia. Their small size, easy care, and interesting behaviors make them a great first pet. The bright red belly of these frogs is a warning to all predators that they are mildly toxic. Although not particularly dangerous to humans, handling should be kept to a minimum and you must wash your hands thoroughly after contact.


Diet: Fire Belly Toads should be fed small crickets or mealworms dusted with ReptiCalcium® and ReptiVite™ as directed. Feed as many insects as your Fire Belly Toad can eat in 15 minutes. Always offer a variety of feeder insects. Small guppies can be offered occasionally.


Life Span: 15-17+ years


Size: 2 inches


Bio: Hermit crabs make great pets that are fun and entertaining to watch. They are easy to care for and inexpensive. Groups of crabs tend to be more active than individual crabs since they are social animals. Caring for a few hermit crabs really isn’t any more difficult than caring for one, so having multiple crabs is not a burden and is recommended. They are nocturnal so you will tend to see more activity in the evening and at night.


Diet: Hermit crabs are omnivores. They will eat both plants and animals. Crabs will eat fruits, vegetables, leaves, insects, and even feces. They are not very picky eaters and are willing to try a variety of different foods.


Life Span: 5-15+ years
