About Us

Reptile Basics Inc. was formed in 2001 as the internet division of Piedmont Reptile, our brick and mortar retail store in Archdale, North Carolina. The primary focus at that time was breeding and resale of quality CB and WC reptiles.

In 2004 the decision was made to sell the retail store and focus on internet sales and reptile shows in the eastern US. At this time RBI also started the cage making business. All of our cages are cut and assembled in our facility using CNC equipment. Since that time there have been several internet based caging companies that have come and gone. RBI has continued to be a fast, reliable and competitive alternative for your reptile caging needs. We have been very careful not to outgrow our capabilities so that we can offer more personalized service and faster turn around times on orders.

Since 2004 we have ventured into manufacturing several reptile related products ranging from plastic hide boxes, radiant heat panels, Vivarium Electronics Thermostats and stainless products. In 2012 we took over the TempGun.com business from our friends at Pro Exotics. We offer wholesale to qualified buyers on several products (F10SC, Heat Panels, VE Thermostats, and more!) and you can find our products for sale at fine retailers both on the internet and all over the USA at reptile shows.

Since 2004 RBI has grown tremendously and has become one of the most respected and trusted names in the reptile industry. You can visit our warehouse in High Point, NC as well as at trade shows around the USA.
