Hey everyone,

Looking to purchase my first ball sometime soon. I've purchased reptiles from big chains before, looking to steer away from that this time around.

I've made contact with a few shops in Tampa that I won't name to keep things objective. Seen some places that interest me so far...was curious if anyone here had recommendations on reptile specific stores/breeders/etc in the Bay area. Anywhere within a general 1 hour drive of Tampa would be considered "Bay Area" for the purpose of this conversation.

Things I'm interested in knowing: How would you rate the knowledge of the staff, cleanliness of the store/location, reasonableness of prices, general ratings, would you buy there again, etc. Whatever you can tell me is greatly appreciated.
