Not to sure if it has made its way here. Sadly after 39 years Animal Jungle will be closing its doors for good.

Thanks for sharing Brian. Long time not hearing from you and hope all is well.
Bummer about AJ. Truly a destination location every time I was able to be close to VB. Sorry to hear the "Big Box, and Internet" has claimed another victim. These kind of stores are more rare to find than a vein of gold.
Check back in with us and let us know about what you've been up to and what fish you're working with now. Always learned a lot from you and your posts.
Ron

Thanks for posting this, Brian! Very Happy Sorry to hear this news. After reading the full story, it seems as if the owner is ready to retire. Big-box stores play a role in why he is closing down just now, but overall he is ready. Reading between the lines, he does not want to sell the store on to someone else because he is certain the store will fail in a new owner's hands. You need to have years of experience to run a business this large and varied. Anyway, that's what I took from the articles I read.

Hope the Serval cat gets placed properly! It's a gorgeous animal.

Sorry to heat that Animal Jungle is closing. I only made it down there once, but it was great.
