FAUNA NYC - redefining pets
At Fauna you will find an assortment of beautiful birds that are all raised in captivity at our very own aviary. By only selling birds that we have raised ourselves can we guarantee the quality and health of each and every bird in our store.
We carry a wide variety of herptiles at Fauna. Unlike most other stores, here you will find only captive raised reptiles and amphibians. While this makes our prices slightly higher, you are guaranteed a healthy pet that has not been collected from the wild.
Most all of our fish and corals are captive raised on farms reducing the impact on wild populations and damage to delicate ecosystems. Not only is this better for the environment, but it also ensures that you have healthier fish that are better suited for life in the aquarium.
