The Reptile Wrangler was originally opened by reptile hobbyist Chris Naylor in 2003 to be the #1 Reptile one-stop shop for reptile supplies in the Barrie, Ontario area. Flash-forward to 2012, current owners Kirk Riddle and Elizabeth Barclay continue to carry that legacy by providing the best in pet reptiles and reptile products.

Kirk has been keeping and breeding reptiles for over 15 years and has successfully bred more than 30 species, including many varieties of monitor lizards. Like many reptile enthusiasts, dinosaurs fascinated Kirk at a young age, and his love for the world of reptiles is evident in his store today. His personal favorites include monitors, tortoises, and a variety of agamids and snakes.

The Reptile Wrangler offers many services including boarding, animal care advice, and custom terrarium building. Animal boarding is available for most species from Leopard Geckos to Crocodile Monitors. The store is involved in captive breeding projects and breeds many species in house, which then get sold in store.

The Reptile Wrangler carries a wide variety of dry goods including Zoo Med items to satisfy every reptile’s needs. All the newest Zoo Med products can be seen on display and purchased as they become available. Live plants for terrariums are strongly encouraged and available for purchase.

Clients can find all sizes of feeder crickets, worms, mice, rats, rabbits, and chicks to satisfy every animal’s dietary needs. Clean up crew is also offered including Springtails and Isopods for Bioactive Terrarium setups. Kirk is incredible at building naturalistic, custom terrariums for clients to meet their animal’s specific needs and climate/natural habitat. If you are in the Barrie area, be sure to visit Kirk at The Reptile Wrangler and check out all their amazing animals in their custom-built terrariums.
