Chandler will soon be home to a unique new store.

Reptile Specialty Store Opening this Summer

Recently on Facebook something super interesting came across my feed. It was a photo of different tanks for reptiles, and I wondered, is this local?  I know we've got a few pet specialty stores in town, but they (correct me if I'm wrong) typically cater to all kinds of pets and not just one kind.  A new place will be opening this summer in Chandler, and they will be catering specifically to our cold-blooded friends.

LOOK: Here are the pets banned in each state

Because the regulation of exotic animals is left to states, some organizations, including The Humane Society of the United States, advocate for federal, standardized legislation that would ban owning large cats, bears, primates, and large poisonous snakes as pets.

Read on to see which pets are banned in your home state, as well as across the nation.
