Located at the northeast corner of Coit and Park Road in Plano, Texas DFW Reptarium is more than just a pet store. It is an experience and has everything you need, a wide variety of animals, feeders, and supplies. Owner David Spicer buys 75 percent of the animals from local Texas breeders. From a beginner just starting out in the hobby to the most experienced veteran, everyone can find just what they are looking for.
David Spicer and David Mead said they noticed a lack of facilities in the Dallas/Fort Worth area that provided food and care for their reptilian pets. “It got frustrating to just wait for trade shows to come to town to go and get the quality stuff that we needed,” Spicer said this led him to open DFW Reptarium in April 2014. David Mead is the General Manager and will answer just about any question one might have.
“Our real passion for opening this shop was to get young people [interested], and the last way to get a young person into this hobby is to sell them a sick, unhealthy animal.”
“My goal eventually would be to expand the business and actually have more of an exhibition-type area with… zoo-class animals and exhibits—housing the animals that we don’t sell,” Spicer said.
