Great alternative to the big box stores. Recently purchased a ball python and they have many different sizes of frozen mice for feeding. Even if you aren't in need of anything at the moment, it's worth stopping in.

The rudest staff. It reeked of weed and the employees were jsut wondering around not helping and looking bothered. When it came time to check out the employee was so beyond mean. I definitely wouldn’t recommend this place

Fanatic staff absolutely loved my experience here. Staff were very friendly and store was very well kept and all their animals seemed happy and healthy. I bought my bearded dragon from them and she so far is very happy and enjoying her new home! Helped my family get their new bunny as well and took great care of her. Only reason this review is not 5 stars is simply due to the fact that 1, the cage I bought from the store (I'm sure it was pre owned I'm fine with that) had melt damage on inner framing from someone leaving a heat lamp, really bummed me out when I went out after and got decorations for her. And 2 the bigger reason, I asked for everything I need as I had done my homework but I wanted someone I saw as more professional just double check me, I repeatedly asked if I had everything I needed and that budget is no problem and they let me walk out the door with a heat lamp but no UVB. I only found out how important this was when I got home and had to immediately go get one. Other than that this store is fanatic and I would highly recommend it to locals.

The young sales clerk was helpful but in the end he sold me a product that was too big for my dog and is no longer returnable. He didn't read the package information, which stated how to size the muzzle. The muzzle straps were so extremely long I had to cut them, but even shortened up, the poor dog couldn't see through the muzzle which was so big it just rested below his eyes. Total bust.

This low score is only in reference to their fish and fish keeping practices. When I visited looking for aquatic plants I noticed several dead and dying fish in their tanks. Any aquarium hobbyist knows that fish die in fish stores. It's expected. The issue is that their filtration is set up so that water from several different tanks is filtered through one system. This means that fouled water from tanks containing sick and dead fish is being circulated in every tank hooked up to that filtration system. Best practices dictate that the next step would be to remove the affected fish from their tanks in order to prevent the spread of illness. When I talked to an employee about it they stated that they had no intention of removing the sick and dead fish from their tanks. I did not feel comfortable buying plants from this store, much less livestock. Don't buy fish here.

Our favorite pet store. They have everything you need and take great care of their pets.

Only reason it’s getting 2 stars is because people who work there seem to know what they are talking about. Bought 4 fish, less then 48 hours ago and all 4 have died. I only spent $20 but still. I would expected them to last longer then a day. The first fish died within the first 6 hours. The tank was a tank that has 4 other completely fine fish in it. I will NEVER be back.

The young guys at the shop are super friendly and knowledgeable (Thanks Fish guy). They are a small store but have wall to wall merchandise, so there is chance they have what you need. Only complaint the fish tanks need a DEEP cleaning.

Love this shop. Great, knowledgeable staff - large selection of birds, reptiles, fish, and rodents - wide variety of toys, foods, and general kit. They hand-raise they're birds so they're already tame and used to people when they're ready to come home.

I only go here once in a great while to buy things for my dog. It smells so bad in this place that it makes me nauseated. Actually glad to be wearing a mask or two and even still the smell comes through. I've been in lots of pet stores in my life and none have had such a stench. Are they not cleaning the cages enough? I don't know but they should do something.

I always love coming here. I've been coming here since I was a kid. They always have such unique animals.

Really confused as to why people are complaining about them no longer selling puppies. Apparently you guys do not know the law. It has been illegal for pet stores to sell puppies in the state of Maryland for 2+ years now. No pet stores sell puppies!!!! Here is the stated law: Maryland pet store puppy sale ban upheld in court. A federal judge has upheld Maryland's ban on retail pet stores selling puppies and kittens, which took effect Jan. ... Larry Hogan (R) signed the bill prohibiting such sales in 2018, making Maryland the second state in the country, behind California, to have such a ban.
