Stingers Exotics is a small Reptile specialty store that sells and breeds a variety of reptiles, along with a few other amphibians and arachnids. They also carry a large selection of Zoo Med products to help you keep and care for your reptiles. This is truly a family run business. Hazel opened Stingers Exotics in 2002, and with the help of her mother Jackie, the two run and operate the store on a daily basis. Hazel's husband Carl works behind the scenes by building the display racks and breeding their reptiles. Their motto is "Where unusual people find unusual pets” and “We love reptiles and people that are serious about reptiles"

After 14 years Stingers Exotics just recently moved the shop to a new location. At 1400sqft, the new store is the same size as their previous one but with more space for parking, easier access, and better visibility from the main road. They are still fine-tuning and getting the new shop “just the way they like it”.

They have many resident reptiles as pets/family members at Stingers Exotics. Most of these are animals that they have rescued thru the years. If you visit the store during the cold months, you’ll most likely run into Esther the Sulcata Tortoise as he roams the warm store greeting customers. During the summer, Esther goes home with Jackie to lounge in her garden. You may also see Ace the Bearded Dragon who likes to bob his head at customers. When they have visitors that are afraid of reptiles, they use Betty the Bearded Dragon. She only works for food and is quick to win them over. Charlie the Red-Tail Boa has been with Hazel for over 20 years now and has been a resident in the store for 14! Make sure to stop by and see them all!
