About us

Hug A Bug was launched by Penny in 2011 although it's roots can be traced back to the tank of stick insects her father bought when she was about 8 years old. Noggin the Leopard Gecko arrived in 2005 and Penny has been sneaking more critters in ever since. 

Penny has a FdSc in Animal Science and a BSc in Animal Conservation & Biodiversity and now lives with a collection of exotics, a house rabbit and a very patient husband.

Parties & Events

Hug A Bug brings the zoo to you! Whatever your event is, children's party, club or fair we will bring a collection of critters for you to get up close and personal with.

We provide a bespoke service tailored to meet your requirements with plenty of time to ask questions and hold as much or as little as you like.

Holiday Care

It can be hard to find people to look after your beloved exotics whilst you are on holiday and we are here to help. We have experience with a wide range of reptiles, amphibians and invertebrates and can pop in to check on your animals daily.

Although we specialise in exotics we don't discriminate against your furry friends and will happily care for your hamsters, gerbils, rabbits etc too. 

Our staff have full DBS checks.

Sales & Rehoming

Whether you are looking to expand or contract your menagerie Hug A Bug can help. Some of our animals are kept in breeding colonies and so we occasionally have juveniles available. We can also provide everything you need to set them up happy and healthy.

Sometimes situations change and people are no longer able to care for our beloved pets. Free from any judgement we can take on your animals or help you to find someone who can.
