The Teacher Creature Store


We love our Russian tortie Lemon! Thank you for taking such good care of your animals. Absolutely 0 health issues whatsoever & he is so so loved!
Thank you for all of the help and guidance when looking at turts/torts for my son. He is deeply attached and fascinated with shelled animals and y'all made his little six year old life dream come true! It's truly his favorite store in the world now. We love Lemon so much ❤️
Great people who will spend time helping you.
So glad I saw your experience with the lowest common denominators. Looking forward to visiting your darling store and supporting an upstanding local business.

Welcome "Creatures of Habit”! We are a retail/resale teacher supply and pet store in Old Town Spring, Tx.

Our store is a teacher supply store for new and gently used supplies for the teacher on a budget. We offer tutorial services, notary services, support for homeschooling parents, classroom pets, teacher gifts and curriculum. We will also be holding events throughout the year to prepare students for the STAAR test and hands on Science related activities for the family to enjoy together.

Just don’t walk in today, sorry we are closed to be with family today. Thank you for putting family first. We will be back open on Wednesday, for regular business hours, so feel free to walk in then! Be blessed and enjoy a beautiful Mother’s Day!

If you can read this, you are most likely a mom, teacher or both.

We want to thank you all for your service to your own children and other people’s children. Hope you all had a fantastic “Teacher Appreciation” week and have a very blessed Mother’s Day, to all the moms out there. Be ever so blessed!

From #axolotls to #tortoises, we have a variety of creatures for sale. Don’t see what you want? Let us know and we will get you a quote on a variety of #reptiles, #amphibians, #mammals, #fish and more!

Stop by this week to gather some cheap reading materials or incentive charts to motivate your learner. We know how it is, and we want to help ease the tension.
