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.

Operating as usual

What kind of dog is this? JK

Meet our baby, Kame, which these days is now a house tortoise and apparently curious about what is in the dog bowl. We have two youngster versions of this African Spur Thigh available for purchase.

Not needing a Huge tortoise? How about a Hermann’s #Tortoise? We have two available and one American Wood #Turtle. We also carry fancy geckos, crested geckos, #frogs, #sliders, map turtles, Halloween Moon Crabs, #axolotls, Fish, bearded dragons and more! Stop by and check out our selection or place a special order!

We do wish you all a very safe and blessed Happy Halloween!

How many of you have these students? Don’t be shy.....Tell the truth! 🤣
