Fangtasia Reptile Emporium, of Norfolk Street, is decked out with spectacular bio active tanks full of wonderful creatures including lizards, snakes, spiders, scorpions, tortoises and bugs.

The shop, which is managed by Andi Shortland and owned by his wife Karen D’Arcy, will soon have its own pet crocodile whose name will be chosen in a competition.

Mr Shortland said: “It has been a big transformation (to the shop). The shop has bio active boxes which look like rainforests with lizards and other pretty creatures inside.

“A lot of people have come in and said ‘wow, we didn’t realise you could do this’.”
