This place has a really good variety of animals and the staff was amazing. I LOVE this place and I will keep on coming back for all of my pets needs.

Great place, with high quality feeder mice. Comparatively to chain pet stores, visually, the pinky mice (that's what I use for my snake) look so much healthier... For being dead and frozen ????

The worst customer service, wrong care information and very pushy staff. I was debating on getting a snake there but left immediately after being interrogated about my setup and told I HAVE to buy a different item by arrogant "know it all" staff.

Awesome selection of snakes, spiders,fish, mice, rats, and other small animals. Huge selection of tanks for reptiles as well. Plenty of choices for any other item you may need for your tank. They have the largest selection of snakes within I'd say 30 miles. I went to 8 pet stores and they had the largest. They are very knowledgeable and the all animals here are kept in great living conditions unlike other stores who seem to not care about it's animals.

My friend Tyrone has two python snakes. I help out by picking up a mouse as needed, to feed his snakes. Fast service, friendly people to help and give advice on all your pet needs.

DO !NOT! PURCHASE A REPTILE FROM HERE. THE OWNER ! TERRY ! SELLS SICK DYING REPTILES AND SHE’LL PUSH YOU OUT THE STORE UNEDUCATED. the owner Terry sold me a $400 Lesser Crystal that unfortunately died within 7 days of rehoming him and I never got a refund; in fact she suggested after his death and with his lifeless body in my hands that I needed to spend more money at her store. !! I found out after his passing from a veterinarian that my ball python was sold to me sick and had a stomach infection. after I showed up to Tropical Hut and showed Terry my ball python she immediately blamed it on me and not her staff for selling me a ball python and heating pad WITH NO THERMOSTAT. they even told me he needs a RED LIGHT for his enclosure.. ! later researching that red light is bad for ball pythons ????‍♀️ most horrible experience I’ve ever experienced while shopping and we are still suffering from his unexpected (in my part) death. my whole family and I have been spreading awareness since. please save yourself a broken heart and don’t go to this reptile shop. there are so many other good ones in Oregon! ????

Cool little place, very nice staff. Seems a bit thrown together, but with the amount of stuff in the small space I can't really hold that against them. Very busy when we visited. Great selection of dart frogs, snakes and tarantulas.

I got a beautiful ball python here, as well as some supplies. they've got a good selection of supplies, and have some amazing morphs available. it has been about 8 months since I brought him home and he's doing great! I'm glad that they have healthy snakes who make great pets. first photo is the day I brought him home, the second and third are more recent. he has grown so much!

when i visited, several of their betta fish in cups were straight-up DEAD, their turtles were so crowded that they were literally stacked on top of each other, and apparently this place illegally sells an endangered species of tarantula. can we get law enforcement on this place already??

If you have an exotic pet, or want one, Tropical Hut is the spot! It's the only place in town that has all the things you need to keep your critter happy. I personally don't like shopping online for things for my turtle, because when you're looking for stuff for your animal, you usually need it now rather than later. They have a great selection of Terrariums that your animal is sure to love, plus all of the fixings to make it truly your own. They have an impressive selection of animals, from mice and hamsters, to snakes and chameleons, crickets to rare spiders. They really have a lot of great stuff. And the staff is so knowledgeable about what they sell. They also have a rewards program for people who are going to be coming here more than once, which is really helpful. Seriously, would give these guys 6 stars if I could. Thanks for all the help, Tropical Hut. My turtle is one of your biggest fans. ????❤️
