It’s that time of year again!
Mugs and tee-shirts are great and all, but when it comes to Christmas gifts, creativity shows just how much you care — even if you don’t share their passion for reptiles. To make your search easier (believe me, Googling “reptile gifts” doesn’t work as well as it should), we’ve put together a list of ideas for all tastes, from the lover of cute things to the more sophisticated reptile enthusiast.
54″ Plush Rhino Viper
They also have a variety of other snake species (although sadly the ball python is out of stock): anaconda, cobra, coral snake, eastern cottonmouth, rainbow boa, western diamondback rattlesnake, and others. They also have a selection of alligators, turtles, and tortoises.

Giant Reptile Gummies
As a gummy enthusiast, I can testify that Vat19 has an incredible selection of gummies. For those who enjoy both reptiles and gummy candy, they have a 2.5′ personal-sized gummy snake, gummy gators, gummy dart frogs (not a reptile, I know, but they’re a herp so close enough). Or if you’re feeling really daring, they also have a 26 lb, 7′ long gummy python!
