East Bay Vivarium

Serving the Bay Since 1970

We have an amazing selection of exotic species to discover.

      Attention friends and guests, good news! We are returning to normal store hours from this coming Friday May 1st onward. We will again be open from 11am-7pm weekdays and 11am-6pm weekends. This is in an effort to reduce the amount of unsafe crowding and long lines we're currently experiencing during our reduced hours al well as to be more convenient for the community to access.

     The same safety regulations are still in effect: only 15 customers allowed inside at a time, no browsing please, wear a face covering and practice social distancing as best you can in our tiny store.

     We look forward to seeing more of you and we wouldn't be able to stay open without the continued support of our amazing community! ~Miero

Baby Beardies!

We just got in a large acquisition of baby bearded dragons! They range form normal morphs ($49) to Hypo Citrus Tigers ($99). Raising one of these fascinating lizards is a privilege and we are happy to walk any new lizard owner through their care and setup! If you're set on adopting one, feel free to email us for photos and more info or come into the shop and let us know you're here for the beardies!
