A new favorite thing for us to do is visit the boa constrictor at CD's Pet Emporium in Arroyo Grande. It's so rare to find a boa constrictor in a pet shop so this is an amazing and unique attribute that this pet shop currently has. They have a large reptile area in the back that is dimly lit. All of the animals looks healthy and happy! Now of course this is all free just to see. It only costs money to buy!

They also have 2 large parrots and other small birds towards the front of the shop! Right when you walk into the door of CD's Pet Emporium, you'll be firstly greeted by the guinea pigs and mice. You'll also see a line of fishes along the wall. 

So if you're shopping for a new pet for the kids, I suggest to make a visit to this local pet shop as well. It's located in the Smart & Final shopping center, which also has the Slice Pizza and Games so this shopping center has a lot of offer! 

Address of CD's Pet Emporium: 1402 E Grand Ave, Arroyo Grande, CA 93420. Arroyo Grande is a city located in San Luis Obispo County and right next to Grover Beach.
