Marvin the iguana we rescued this past spring made his television debut on the WXMI Fox 17 morning news show, in a segment about exotic pets.
Marvin has made a remarkable recovery. When he came in he had an enormous abscess on his jaw and looked nearly starved to death. After we treated the abscess, he started eating again, and has since put on a lot of weight. He, along with M’ojo acts as a store mascot, and helps with our educational programs.
Rainforest Station is gearing up for fall, and building our inventory of exotic pets. Beautifully colored corn snakes are available, and our leopard gecko babies are ready for new homes. We are expanding our variety of poison dart frogs, and currently have a lot of nice Dendrobates tinctorius froglets available. We also have Madagascar giant day geckos, forest armadillo lizards, desert iguanas, and many other new arrivals . Keep an eye out for new additions coming soon..
We’ve added to our collection of orchids and tropical plants, too.
And, we now have a wide variety of small furry critters including Richardson’s ground squirrels, short-tailed oppossums, degus, fancy rats, hamster, gerbils, and more.
Rainforest Station always offers a wide variety of exotic pets, featuring the largest selection of poison dart frogs, tree frogs and terrestrial frogs you’ll find in a retail store in the Midwest. You’ll also find leopard geckos, crested geckos, gargoyle geckos, and other gecko species; bearded dragons and other lizards (currently featuring baby savannah monitors, baby blue-tongued skinks, Asian water dragons, green and red iguanas, ameivas and more ), turtles and tortoises, corn snakes and ball pythons, an assortment of tarantulas, and even some amphibians with tails: tiger salamanders, spotted salamanders, Spanish (Iberia) ribbed newts, California newts, and Axolotl.
If you’re into tarantulas, we have everything from beginner species, such as the Chilean Red Rose-Hair to advanced species such as the Sri Lanka Ornamental Tarantula.
If you are looking for any other species, please drop us a line and we’ll do our best to track it down. And, of course, we have more roaches, crickets, wax worms, fruit flies, and bean beetles than you can shake a stick at.
