The crew was very nice & welcoming but the store was nasty & stink. Just because animals live here doesn't mean it should be FILTHY & not maintained ..From the outside to every nook CLEAN UP & I MEAN DEEP CLEAN ????. I dont like to give bad reviews when ppl are so nice but it's not the ppl the biz is selling it's the animals & these animals living conditions is a struggle , & the environment not being properly maintained

I've been coming here since I was a kid. This place is a gem. Lot's of character and beautiful animals. The parrots and tortoise have been there for a long time.

Absolutely love this store, I’ve purchased many pets from them. Blue beard on the other had is a pain in the neck. He is not the owner yet speaks to customers with such attitude. Cage full of feeder rats at the store but wouldn’t sell 1 to me because I didn’t purchase a snake from his personal breeding batch a while back. He said all of the rats were sold to him because his snakes at home have to eat! Anytime I come by he tells me no feeders in stock. Yet when I go and he is not there, I’m always able to purchase. Try to go when he’s not there.

Very cluttered, and prices were high, but they had some different things you don't see elsewhere. It was definitely worth stopping to check out on our way through town.

Most disgusting pet store I've ever been in EVER! They sell alligators! WHY? The employees all look and act like they're on heavy drugs. Will never return don't recommend it to anyone and wouldn't let my kids visit here..

People there were nice and attentive, for the most part. This store was filthy, the stench was overbaring. I literally covered my nose the entire time. There were more reptiles not for sale than for. More empty cages than full. This is not a pet store one would think of.

Okay so first things first. SOME of the animals seemed to be healthy here, but a good majority of them were not. The fish had HORRIBLE water, and some were even floating around dead in their tanks. Most of the rats and mice were in GLASS CAGES. If you don't know, glass cages are horrible for rats, because it doesn't allow proper airflow, which makes the animals sick. I should know, I have 5 rats, 2 of them from here. They came home sick, and we are doing everything we can for them. Other rodents only had one or two in their cages, (which were small cages), and were practically CRYING to be let out. I also didn't see many water bottles for them, or anything for them to do in the cage. The birds, oh the poor birds. They looked heartbroken and dirty. Only a few of them were active and talkative, but they sounded more like screams of help than playful chirps. They're reptiles are so crammed into their cages, and look so sick and dirty, I feel so bad for them. Please, get this place shut down NOW! It's not a good place whatsoever. Will never be going back.

I got my pet ball python at Ed’s. I now come in here once a week to get her rats and to look around. Ed’s has extremely nice people working there. Seth and Angie are the best! They fairly price their animals and are always willing to help you out as much as they can. I highly recommend Ed’s Pet world to anyone looking for a great reptile shop or a great pet store.

Amazing pet store for all!! Ask for Angie, she is the best. Every animal you can imagine is there with knowledgeable employees/owners that most importantly CARE about the animals! Great prices too! You will not be disappointed ????

A nice well rounded hometown pet store. From snakes to birds to fish, quite the selection.

Seriously horrible. I don’t know how they’re still business. I got an iguana from there a few years ago that was so sick and had mites and gangrene. Despite mine and the vets best effort to keep it alive, it died way before it’s time. I went the other day to see if anything changed considering they have the best selection in the area, and the cages are filthy... You can’t even see what’s in most of the aquatic tanks because they glass is covered in a layer of grime. It’s about 100 degrees in there constantly, and animal cages are basically just piled in there right on top of each other. I can’t believe people are allowed to treat animals like this.
