The Ark in campustown is a great little pet store. Despite its demure size in comparison to gigantic chain stores, The Ark has a wonderful selection of pet food, treats and accessories. Sometimes it is difficult to find a certain rare cat food or fish bowl heater, but not at the Ark. The staff are rather knowledgeable and usually very helpful -the only exception being when they are busy with too many customers -which is too often. Even better than the selection of pet products is the selection of pets themselves. They always have a wide selection of mammals, birds, reptiles, fresh-water fish and their marine collection is quite comprehensive. The only bad thing about this is I have noticed on a couple of occasions that certain rare pets were not cared for properly -such as the case of a veiled chameleon, who died of dehydration because it was not provided with a dripping water source.
