About Browning Reptiles

How did Browning Reptiles come to exist?

Our story goes a lot like most reptile enthusiasts.

Once upon a time there was a family who decided to bring home their very first reptile. In our case this was a Bearded Dragon. It was not long until we were hooked. One reptile led to two....two led to five, then nine, nineteen, well you get the point. Our current collection of various Reptiles, Amphibians and Invertebrates stands at just shy of 60 with plans for more...

 

As our collection grew, so did our desire and need for more knowledge about these creatures. Our techniques of husbandry, socialization and over all understanding of these animals, became something we were being asked to share more. Browning Reptiles was born. Through online learning and self-educating courses more knowledge has provided the very foundation for successful exotic animal ownership. The wealth of knowledge obtained on these amazing animals is something that needs to be shared with the world. A better understanding of these highly misunderstood and under appreciated animals is something everyone (young and old) will benefit from. 

Many would consider this strange, weird, gross even, but we strongly believe that these views are a result of misunderstanding. Fears are usually rooted from the unknown or the unfamiliar. There is so much we can learn from these different species and this is what made us want to start Browning Reptiles. We want to share our knowledge and passion with EVERYONE. We want to introduce you to exotic animals and bring you a better understanding of what makes them special and worth while.

 

Do you rescue or accept surrenders?

YES! Some of our animals are in fact rescues or surrenders. 

If you happen to have an animal that requires re-homing please contact us. If the animal is in need of special care we will ensure that this happens.

Getting an animal of any kind is a big responsibility. We suggest doing your research and asking questions before becoming a new pet owner. If you have any questions regarding reptiles, feel free to reach out to us. We will be happy to answer any questions you may have or direct you to those who can provide you with the proper information.
