SNAKES ALIVE! SNAKE AWARENESS DAY at NOTJUSTPETS THURS 5 APRIL 9.30am-5.30pm

We recently lost Colin, our albino Corn snake – he was an old boy and had enjoyed a good life at Not Just Pets as the personal pet of Elisa, the manageress. He had been handled many times and all our snake-friendly customers loved him. Many children learned how to handle snakes by holding Colin as he had such a lovely temperament and was happy being out of his enclosure.

So, this month we decided to pay an homage to Colin by having a Snake Awareness Day and celebrate and educate our customers on all things snake. At least, on the snakes we stock – which include corns, royal pythons and carpet pythons – plus a few visitors who are coming especially for the day.

Please tell your reptile-loving friends as we will be having special reptile-related promotions on the day and you will have the chance to buy a few rare specimens with some lovely colour morph variations.
