...Goals and plans for the future...

The overarching goal of Nature Box is to be THE destination for any animal enthusiast, not only in in Colorado but also the surrounding states. We plan to achieve this goal by firstly having a constantly revolving, unique selection of not only reptiles, but also small mammals and aquatic life. We have many years experience breeding many of our own animals including aquatic animals such as fish and invertebrates, geckos, snakes, tortoises, and chameleons of all types.  Also, by creating compelling displays that really showcase not only the animals, but the environments they live in. Chad, one of the owners, specializes in custom NATURE terrariums for rare reptiles of all types. And finally, by having all the dry goods, supplies, and feeders you need to maintain your very own Nature Box at work or home.

But above all else, Nature Box Pet Emporium strives to maintain one main goal; to provide the best possible support to our customers and the animals that they keep.  We understand the importance of education in this industry and will continuously strive to provide expert advice to each and every one of our customers, whether they are purchasing pet supplies online or are visiting our store in person. 

By having both fully stocked retail, and online, stores we are able to serve not only locals but exotic animal enthusiasts across the country. We look forward to helping you with all of your pet related needs, so please, feel free to stop by the shop or contact us!


We also partner with only the best veterinarians to tend to our animals needs should the occasion arise. We are proud to use and recommend Aurora Animal Hospital for your dogs, cat, and reptiles.
