Don’t scale back when it comes to cold-blooded critters this summer. In fact, it’s time to celebrate their unique physique during PETCO’s Reptile Rally June 2-3. Reptile enthusiasts will have a chance to show off their pals’ scaly skills in a Cold-Blooded Beauty Contest.

For those who still get the “willies,” there will be a hands-on meet-and-greet to help the squeamish warm up to the cold-blooded community.

To pay further tribute to these beauties, guests can learn even more about reptiles during a Scaly Scavenger Hunt.

Reptile appearances and in-store selection may vary by location. For more information on June’s Meet the Critters: Reptile Rally event, visit
