Lost Realms Pets sets record Grand Opening numbers for its opening day on Saturday April 8th, 2017.

Attendees started arriving two hours before the event to line up to get into the prehistoric playground. By the end of the day over 2,800 people attended the Grand Opening and enjoyed all of the festivities. City Council officials, the Fresno/Clovis Convention & Visitors Bureau and Valley Children’s Hospital did a ribbon cutting with the Lost Realms Pets owners Nick Crawford and Pat Fournier. Local food and dessert trucks named each of their items a reptile-related name such as Prehistoric Pepperoni Pizza and Monitor Lizard Pie Ice Cream. There was even reptile egg cake-pops available! Free face painting and a Forgotten Temple bounce slide was available for everyone. Combined the opportunity drawing raised over $2,200 for Valley Children's Hospital.

Upon walking in visitors could see a baby wallaby and porcupine. Children and parents were all captivated by the plethora of exotic reptiles and amphibians that were available to see, pet, hold and purchase. Each child received a free educational coloring book with reptile drawings and facts! Facebook flooded with amazing reviews after the grand opening, giving the Facebook only 5-star reviews.

“We are truly amazed by the overwhelming support and attendance of our grand opening” This is our dream and our dream came true.” - Nick Crawford, Co-Owner.

Lost Realms Pets is now open for business everyday. The hours are as followed:

Monday -Saturday: 9am-8pm
Sunday: 10am-7pm

Address: 8059 N Cedar Ave, Fresno, CA 93720

About Lost Realms Pets

 

Once you step foot into this 8,000 square foot facility you will transport into a prehistoric playground like nothing you’ve ever seen before. This jungle resembled after a forgotten temple houses more than 50 species of exotic reptiles and amphibians. Some of these exotic animals include Crocodile Monitors, Giant Reticulated Pythons, endangered Borneo Earless Monitors and Rio Fuerte Bearded Lizards. There are tons of incredible habitats with amazing animals to see and those that fall in love with these animals are able to exit the zoo to purchase them along with all of the supplies and caging.

Local reptile enthusiasts and owners Nick Crawford and Pat Fournier, thought of this one of a kind concept years ago and just waited for the perfect time to bring it to fruition. Pat owned the Reptile Room for 18-years. He just recently closed its doors to start this new venture - the largest reptile, amphibian, supply and caging store on the West Coast.
