DO NOT SUPPORT EXOTIC ARC 

The pictures above were taken on August 29th, 2014 by a member of a bearded dragon community. These bearded dragons are being kept at Exotic ARC located in St. Louis, MO. The conditions the bearded dragons are kept in are clearly deplorable. There are way too many housed altogether, their tank is obviously hardly cleaned, many of the dragons are lethargic and some are even possibly dead.

These guys pride themselves in being reptile experts. If they cannot even take care of bearded dragons, how are they caring for the more ‘intermediate’ reptiles in the store? Many people have witnessed the other reptiles in the store being neglected just as bad, with one person saying the following:

The animals had no water. The baby leopard geckos were eating each other. Dead animals everywhere in the cages. They also way too many baby chameleons in one cage and at least 10 dead ones at the bottom. The smell in there is horrific.” 

They also have been seen to give incorrect advice on how to care for reptiles. Someone who posted looking for advice on how to take care of a turtle they found was told that all they needed was a ‘full spectrum light’ to take care of the turtle, while in reality they need an actual UVB light as well as a heat lamp. See the following:

A group of us have been trying to go on their facebook to bring attention to these issues to not only the owner but also the customers. They simply delete the posts once they get online.

What we can do:

Leave a review on their Facebook page (they can’t delete reviews, they can only hide the review page itself if they choose to)

Contact FOX 2 news in St. Louis to cover the deplorable conditions these animals are being kept in

Contact the Missouri Department of Agriculture 

Contact the City of St. Louis Animal Care & Control 

Bring Exotic ARC to the attention of USARK (United States Association of Reptile Keepers)

Contact James Brumley and tell him to fix the horrible conditions of his store

It is amazing and horrible that this store has remained operating for as long as it has if it subjects its reptiles to these conditions. Stores like these give a bad name to other small businesses that go out of their way to properly care for their reptiles.

If anybody who lives around the area could travel to the store to gather more proof of the blatant neglect taking place, that would be much appreciated.
