Critters Direct Exotic Pets & Supplies Center.  In 2016 we turned a family hobby into a family business and haven’t looked back since.  Physically located in beautiful New Bern NC, our storefront is online only as the uniqueness of our product line simply would not support the conventional brick and mortar business model in a small town such as New Bern.

Critters Direct offers a wide variety of exotic pets, pet supplies and educational material.  Our mission is to breed, culture, rear, and sell the most interesting and exotic collection of creatures and creature accessories on the internet.  In conjunction, it’s our goal to educate, inspire, and encourage people to fully embrace nature by inviting it into their homes and making it a part of their daily lives.

Our website has been carefully designed to provide you with an amazingly flexible online shopping experience, and its ease of navigation is something we think you'll grow to depend on and appreciate. Feel free to browse our entire product catalog, and let us know if you have any questions, comments or concerns about any of our items. We are always ready and willing to assist with any questions you may have so please don't hesitate to ask. If we don't know, we'll find out and get back to you.
