Reptile HQ *Pics*

Was visiting Chris, from Reptile HQ this week and snapped off a few pics of the new store.

You'll have to excuse the dim lighting pics, he was just closing up when i decided to snap a few and the UV lights were all turned off.

This is an outside pic of the temperature controlled room for all hatchlings and babies....



This is a shot of part of the inside while doing some last minute cleaning....


Again, lights were off, so kinda dark, but this is 1/2 of a wall which will be placed in a 50 foot temperature controlled room on the other side of the store. Ive been told thats its gonna be constructed of mostly glass from top to bottom, so it should be an interesting sight once finished.



And heres just a few of the animals i took a liking too while ive been visiting often this month.
First time i got to handle adults of this species and they were great!




I guess i should have taken the pics b/4 they were sprayed for the night, but u get the point...lol

and heres a frilled i also took a liking too, although he still wouldn't frill up for me, even with the funny faces i was making..
maybe they wern't so funny...heh.


And heres just one of many tanks, which is housing a baby emerald.


All in all i have been impressed with what his store has become.
Best of luck to you buddy!
And im there to help build that big room if ya need it.

Gvg

PS, Get that website up soon!

I've known Chris for about 19 years now, so obviously I want to see him succeed, if only so he'll shut up about his store already .

I've watched this shop go from an idea he'd throw around when we were on long drives to pick up some herp or other, to a reality in a very short time. He gets things done.

I know what he wants to do with Reptile Headquarters, I know what kind of knowledge he's bringing to the business, and I know that there hasn't been anything like it in this country.

It's not an overnight process; I've helped him scan plans and sent them off to carpenters and interior designers, this retail space is a work in progress and the best is yet to come, perhaps sooner than anyone thinks.

I don't expect you to take my word for it. These forums are great, but you can sing the praises of a store all you want, it doesn't prove anything.

So if you really want to see for yourself the kind of quality and care Chris is bringing to this industry, go see him at the store, ask him what's in the works, and then go back to watch it unfold. Anyone with a computer can dash off a message filled with biased, empty praise. I urge you to experience it for yourself, and then you'll really know.

After that new climate controlled room gets built, there are gonna be some incredible animals in there as he more than triples his present stock. Finally, I'm not gonna give away the secret 'cause I'll be shot, but he's got a project in the works that's gonna turn more than a few heads.
