PETCO Offers Nationwide Reptile Educational Event on the Heels of "Rango" Movie Launch

National PETCO Meet the Critters Event Features Crested Gecko & Educates Families on Ownership via an Interactive Meet and Greet


SAN DIEGO, March 1, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The buzz around Johnny Depp's latest animated feature, Rango, is already spreading like wildfire and parents everywhere will soon be faced with "googly-eyed" children wanting their own pet reptile after seeing the flick. Before making a decision, parents and kids alike are invited to educate themselves on the responsibilities of reptile ownership. PETCO's across the nation invite you to their "Meet the Critters" store-wide event featuring the Crested Gecko. In addition to giving reptile enthusiasts a chance to show off their pride and joy, the free educational event provides kids and their squeamish moms alike with an opportunity to hold the crested gecko, as well as learn interesting facts, proper care and habitat information.

Here are a just a few reasons why "cresties" have become one of the most popular pets in the gecko species and why PETCO is featuring them as part of the monthly "Meet the Critters" events:

⁃ Moms have no fear! While insects are enjoyed, they are not required- there is a Crested Gecko Diet specially formulated for them that is a powder that you simply mix with water.

⁃ This reptile has superb climbing abilities with a prehensile tail like a monkey so it can hang upside down.

⁃ With flirty eyelashes and velvety soft skin in array of colors, how can you not fall in love?

⁃ With a long life expectancy, you can prepare for this companion to become a real member of the family.

⁃ One look at the Crested Gecko's unique shape, velvety skin, patterns and colors makes it clear it's not your average reptile.

"Meet the Critters: is a free educational event that allows guests of all ages to enjoy hands-on activities while learning about a variety of unique and interesting pets from reptiles to rabbits.

For more information on the event please contact a local PETCO or go to www.petco.com/critters
