New exotic pet shop opens in Ossett

15 May 2024

If you're into your exotic animals then Primitive Pets in Ossett is the place to visit.

The new pet shop, on Station Road, officially opened its doors on May 4, with Mable, the reticulated python (longest species of snake in the world) attracting many fans!

Speaking about her passion for animals, she said: “I have been interested in animals for as long as I can remember.

”As a child, my parents couldn't take me past a pet shop without me dragging them into it.

"I studied animal management at college then decided university wasn't for me, so went straight into working, starting at an exotic animal shop and rescue and becoming manager there.

"When the opportunity came for me to start my own business, I decided to go for it.”

Primitive Pets also offers free advice as well as grooming services for reptiles and birds.
