CARTIMAR, A Pet Lover's Heaven
Cartimar is really a pet lover's heaven, literally. There are rows and rows of pet stores each with their own market. It varies from exotic birds, marine fish, gold fish, jelly fish, sea urchins, dogs, cats, hamster, snakes, frogs, and the list can go on and on. And it's not just the animals. Some stores just sell pet supplies such as bird seeds, cages, dog carriers, dog collars/clothes, and aquariums and the prices are cheaper than buying from a pet shop in the mall.
One of the many stores selling dogs and puppies
Snakes were also for sale
Rows and rows of bird cages
150 gallon marine aquarium...One of my goals in life, to set up an aquarium just like this one.
A 11 month old macaw PHP75,000.00
Bird seeds of all kinds
Tons of clown fish with sea anemones. I would have bought one for my marine aquarium but we were still having dinner after.
Truth be told, we were actually there to buy a bike for my kid but we were definitely side tracked and entertained by everything within eye sight. The kids had a blast. It was like taking them to the zoo but it was free! Some of the store owners were even kind enough to remove the animal from it's cage so that the kids can pet it. So what was supposed to take us just half an hour to buy a bike became 2 hours.
