Reptile/Amphibian    Age: Adult

    Meet Jade! Jade is a 3 year old female bearded dragon. I originally purchased her from a highly recommended breeder located near St. Louis, Missouri. Jade enjoys baths, exploring outside of her cage, and perching on shoulders. Sadly, I had to move away for college leaving Jade in the care of my mother. My mother doesn't have the time to care for her as much as I did, so finding a new home for Jade is what is best for her. If needed, Jade can also come with her tank, lights, and decor. Please email me if you would like to see any more pictures of Jade, her tank, or ask me any questions. Adoption fee is negotiable if I know she'll be ... (Read More)going to a good home.

Reptile/Amphibian    Age: Baby

    Two red footed tortoises seeking a new home. I have had Deebo and Stevie for 4 years now, they have grown quickly, and require a bigger home. Unfortunately, I cannot accommodate a 6 foot enclosure in my home. These guys don't require a lot of maintenance but they certainly require a big space to call home comfortably.

PIease Read Before Adopting Reptiles & More in Illinois
    Reptiles & More can make good pets in Illinois if they match your IifestyIe. Reptiles are interesting animals. Many types of reptiles and amphibians are kept as exotic pets. Snakes, turtles, iguanas, and frogs are popular examples. Keeping a reptile as a pet is a tremendous responsibility. Many reptile owners discover that owning a reptile is not as rewarding as they had hoped. Reptiles do not bond with people the way mammals can, and are sometimes neglected for that reason. Also, many people purchase young, small reptiles without being aware of or prepared for their eventual adult size. For example, Burmese Pythons are often bought as pets when they are about two feet long. However, many do not realize that Burmese Pythons are among the largest snakes in the world, with adults averaging 23 feet in length and weighing hundreds of pounds! There is now an established invasive population of Burmese Pythons in Florida due to pet owners releasing the snakes into the wild. Scientists believe these huge snakes will keep spreading out and will one day inhabit one third of the United States! Some owners are not prepared for the long lifespan of a pet reptile. Some species of turtles are known for their extreme longevity. Iguanas can grow to be six feet long and then live for 20 years. Sadly, many captive reptiles suffer from dehydration and kidney problems, poor nutrition, and all other manner of neglect. A person who is truly ready to commit to a reptile pet can alleviate some suffering by adopting an animal rather than purchasing new.
