Welcome to Bioactive Herps.

A shop by keepers, for keepers, helping you to Create a Slice of Nature in your Home
Bioactive Herps has dedicated the last few years to bringing our customers and their reptiles ‘Back to Nature’.

Bioactive Reptile Enclosures

We manufacture and supply quality products to help our customers design Naturalistic and Bioactive Reptile enclosures. This includes enclosure decoration, the animal’s Dietry food, as well as the fun Bioactive Reptile Plants and Bioactive Equipment.

Our specialities are in large, planted, naturalistic and Bioactive setups, that improve welfare and husbandry of your animals and minimising maintenance. This means you can enjoy your hobby, rather than have it be another chore.

Setup in 2015, Bioactive Herps is an Independent Reptile Specialist Pet Shop. In recent years, we have seen a positive, and large, movement towards keepers choosing larger, more natural setups over the minimalistic and sterile setups of the past. Realising a huge gap in the market, we opted to jump feet first into retail.

Natural products through the store

We have sourced natural products from all over Europe and beyond, with many of our items being extremely hard to find elsewhere or even completely unique. During our search, we found a real need for newcomers to be able to buy ‘off the shelf’ substrate mixes. Seeing some larger organisations bringing in their own brand products at high prices, we decided to make a quality but affordable substrate, keeping costs low to pass on savings to the customers, whilst ensuring high standards of quality for the end user.

Bioactive Herps is now considered one of the leading retailers in Natural and Bioactive products, whilst also stocking a wide range of Natural Decor, Substrates and one of the largest ranges of Live Plants available in the Reptile Trade. However we are still a small team, which allows us to give each customer that personal touch, seeing every order through from start to finish on a personal basis.

If you don’t see what you want, please don’t hesitate to give us a shout, and we will do our utmost to find it for you.

All the best,

What is a Bioactive Setup?

A Natural Ecosystem

A Bioactive set up is essentially recreating a functioning ecosystem within the animals enclosure. It keeps all the substrate naturally clean and provides great enrichment for the animals- especially those that like burrowing.

Self Managing

The substrate will have invertebrates added to it like springtails, woodlice, worms, millipede species etc. All these creatures make up the cleaning crew of a bioactive set up. They break down the animals waste into the soil where the nutrients can be used by plants
