they need a serious wake up call

Unfortunately my experience was not a great one, I just went into shop for fish and maybe some supplies and instead i'm getting a lecture on how to clean my fish tank. whats up with that, the gentleman is telling me my tank needs to be cleaned every week because that's what he does there at the shop.. Dude you work there thats your job. Anyway this company does not have a great selection on fish or supplies and very much over rated, best store in S.A. I don't think so..... Giving a rate of one star but doesn't even deserve that sorry guys

Best Pet Store In San Antonio

I visited this pet store today to ask questions about african pygmy hedgehogs as well as to see how much they cost. I discovered that this pet store is the best pet store in san antonio. They have reasonable prices, much cheaper than big brand pet stores, and they truely care about the pets they are selling. People complain about the employees acting like ""know-it-alls"". Well i STRONGLY disagree with this. They were kind and offered as much help as they possibily could give.

If you are looking to buy any kind of small animal, reptile, fish, ect. MOST DEFINATELY visit River City Exotics. If you have any questions about the health of these animals I would also strongly recommend this store.

Best Pet Store In SA

Mr. Mike has to be doing some thing right. He has been there for god knows how long! Ya ya so he can sound a tad bit of an arrogant jerk but he wants you to make sure you take great care of your new pet! All he is doing is simplifying the task at hand. He is a walking How to take care of your _________ For dummies. I bought a candy cane corn snake from him back in February she is doing great! I just bought my girlfriend a corn snake yesterday, and guess where we went? The snakes look happy and alive ( all though snakes cant show emotion) all the tanks are clean not filled with poop and old shedding. I started going to another pet store to buy my snake its mice to eat. But the people there spit a hundred words a second and just want a sale. The more questions I asked the more and more annoyed they seemed to get as if they where saying ""dude shut up and buy some thing"" Mr. Mike on the other hand is always willing to listen to you and help you. Even over the phone! That is why I will do the 26 mile round trip drive to his business every week! Seriously folks do not let his attitude scare yall away. You will walk away with a great healthy pet, and not argue with the other guy cause your pet died to days after you bought it! Because Mike makes sure that does not happen by giving you all the knowledge you need to be successful in keeping your pet happy and healthy.

I have bought several Hamsters at River City Exotics and I agree there knowledge is vast and very helpful, we travel three hours from San Angelo,Texas to buy their pets. Their pets are of high quality and the staff is very helpful. I highly recommed them for all your pet needs

The Best Pet Store in SA

We absolutely love this store. Everyone is very knowledgeable about ALL their animals. Mike always has great information to give. We have bought 3 ball pythons from him and are very pleased with them. They are part of our family. We would not recommend going anywhere other than River City Exotics to buy a snake (or any other pet). We did and regretted it. One died and the other was returned because it would not feed even after several months. We send everyone we know (and even those we don't) to River City. We live in Converse and literally travel across the city to River City Exotics and it's definitely worth it!!!!!

very good selection, very knowledgable employees, get place to get information

I have gone to this pet store for several years. The owner Mike is very knowledgable and always willing to help out. The employees either can answer questions or can look up information for any customer. Everyone is always very helpful and courteous. The animals offered are top quality and make great pets. Definitely a place to go if you are looking for an unusual and unique pet.
