Turtles & Tortoises

It's pretty obvious how much we love "all things turtle" with our rescued, giant sulcatta tortoises on exhibit every winter (Meet them here!) and our red footed tortoises and varieties of other tortoises! We also have some of their relatives, the turtles! As a dual licensed animal facility (the only full line pet store with live pets, pet supplies, and the exotic animal shelter for Lawrence, Kansas), we have animals from rescues to rehomes to specialty bred just for us. Here are a few of the exotics you might see at Pet World on any given day!
