We've mentioned Preshistoric Pets before, but it's so much fun, I thought I'd mention it again. Located in Fountain Valley, Prehistoric Pets isn't exactly your typical pet store. They specialize in snakes, turtle, geckos & lizards. & At Prehistoric Pets you can get "up close and personal" with some of the animals, because this is one pet store, that is more like a zoo. You can visit with the 200 pound tortoise or check out the turtles for absolutely FREE. Although, for a mere $2.99 you can purchase veggies or worms to feed the animals. (My boys got a kick out of dangling those worms above the turtles & watching them swarm.) But in my opinion, the best deal is the Prehistoric Pets Reptile Zoo. The cost for admission is $8 for adults (under 4 gets in FREE), however you can redeem your ticket for $8 worth of merchandise. So, you can go inside the zoo, where your kids will be thrilled by the ginormous snakes & lizards. & If they are brave, they can touch (or even hold a snake or two), perhaps an iguana & probably a baby turtle. Then, you can redeem your ticket for worms & veggies and feed the animals on the way out. It was the perfect afternoon, & my boys are still talking about it. Or, if you'd rather... you can always have the reptiles come to you with Jurassic Parties.
