Have you guys ever noticed that once you go check out the turtles at Petco, girlfriend usually find them in some huge 75-150 gallon tank with two canister filters, a basking light and also a substantial turtle dock and also occasionally some goldfish to run around.

You are watching: How much is a turtle at petco

but as soon as you walk to Petsmart (supposedly the larger company), they have the turtle in those tiny lil reptile compartments with choose 2inch of water

Petco own Petsmart in their pet area. Petco doesn"t seperate your Leopard Geckos so you can acquire rare morphs for cheap yet Petsmart seperates theirs and charge an extra $30...

both shop suck over were i live your is a pet save down the roadway from me referred to as down city hound and like i have actually said be because that they have actually 70 turtle in a 100 gallion tank i dislike it as soon as turtles are miss out on treated they have actually feelings like an extremely other animal


There a too many of world out there that thinks reptiles are like bugs. Castle don"t treatment for them and there living conditions. Mine mom uncovered out that I obtained snakes and also she said she"s gonna fly right here with pest sprays and only pest sprays simply to death my snakes!!!! She"s out of her mind! She know"s she can"t take them on the plane, but she just needs to say the to upset me. I"m letting who look after my snakes when she decides come come visit!

ya my mother hates my turtles she think they room nasty gross and they dont have to be in the house i think she dogs are nasty and gross and dont need to be inside


Petsmart is totally lacking in acceptable turt/tort habitat and care. Ns have brought this come the attention of every manager i have seen. The simply give the smile and also nod routine and also say thankyou for bringing that to mine attention...

we room following company guidelines from ours vets .. Ns will store that in mind.. Lol blah blah.

Its just prices that store me going and also even climate i would certainly still drive across town to go to a petco because that anything serious.

I don"t have a Petco close to me. I do not like Petsmart though. The lady that heads the Herp Dept there knows what i keep and her comment about my cooters is, "Ah you have nothing to concern about, as soon as they acquire too huge just relax them!" WTH??!!

I have actually listened to her "help" world with your turtle purchases, and also have unable to do behind her and said to the customers, "Ok, so this is what you really need...blah lol blah. If you require any more help, don"t ask right here go to these forums!" lol I"m certain they think I"m weird however that"s ok!

I have a different view. We have a Petco and also a Petsmart here. However our Petsmart is good and our Petco i cannot stand. The girl that works in over there Herp room is really young, yet knows her stuff. She is always quick come tell me what functions for her and also what is just junk on the shelf. Ns have always gotten good help and also animals there. Petco top top the otherhand, has really been a poor experience because that me. I have actually bought wax worms the were old, after ~ I had waited on someone to assist me because that over 20 min just to be told the i can have just assisted myself (I don"t work-related there, ns didn"t understand where they save there worms). I have tried several times come to uncover things there only to need to drive come the various other side of town to Petsmart to uncover what ns was spring for. Our Petco never ever wants come "talk" or "teach" around the pets that lock have. And also a most the time they do not carry the "stuff" you require for an animal that lock sell.

that doesn"t sound appropriate to me. However, v all that said, ns did uncover ZooMeds Naturals because that Tortoises there. I looked for about 2 month everywhere and they had it.

I have uncovered that, I would rather obtain an pet from a rescue or to buy one native a breeder(a great one). I acquire my worms and also other pet food in ~ Petsmart and also my crickets from a bait shop (a lot of cheaper). I home window shop in ~ Petco if i am trying to waste time. Currently if I might only discover out where to buy eco-friendly Cuban Roaches I would certainly be set.
