B.T.J.’s Jungle of West Islip, New York – your one-stop pet shop – is proud to be the only place on Long Island to find your favorite exotic pets. If you’re looking to add a unique pet to your family, our exotic pet experts can help guide you to the right type that would be a perfect addition.
We have many different types of exotic pets. Our pet experts have put together some fun facts about a few of the furry friends you can find at B.T.J.’s.
Native to South America, chinchillas are known for their soft, lush fur. With an average lifespan of 10 to 20 years, Chinchillas are long-term pets that will make wonderful and playful companions.
B.T.J.’s selection of chinchillas is extensive. Our chinchillas come in a variety of different colors; the most common being silver. Though they are low-maintenance pets, we have all of the food and supplies you need to provide your new chinchilla with a lifetime of care.
To ensure happy, healthy chinchillas, be sure to also pick up one of our large, multi-level cages with a dust bathhouse so they can groom themselves.
Pet degus are known for their unique personalities and silly antics. And no one knows degus as well as B.T.J.’s.
They are social animals, so they fare well in pairs. They are not nocturnal, so they’re awake when you are. Like chinchillas, they take dust baths and are very clean pets. Degus are also intelligent animals and can be trained.
Our pet experts are happy to answer your questions and find you the perfect pet degu (or degus!) to take home. We also carry a host of pet supplies, toys and food that will help your degu be happy, healthy and active for its whole life.
If you’ve never before seen a ferret at play, then you’re missing out! Ferrets are known for being active, curious and intelligent pets, but they can be very mischievous when not supervised. Although they require more maintenance than some other pets, owning a ferret pays off tremendously in the long run.
B.T.J.’s staff has a lot of experience with ferrets and can provide you with all you need to know about them, such as their ability to be trained to use a litter box and perform a variety of tricks. They are even known to socialize and get along with other animals in your home.
We have a wide selection of toys and food to keep your ferret lively and happy, and we can help get you set up with all of the ferret supplies you’ll need.
At B.T.J.s, we’re professionals at setting up exotic pet habitats, and guarantee the happiness of both you and your exotic pets for years to come.
