Owned by two local reptile lovers, Curious Creatures just opened up at 4131-4133 North Broadway. The Buena Park shop specializes in the world of things that slither, and it sells lizards, snakes, and tortoises. Also on hand: food for the aforementioned creatures, including such tasty treats as crickets and roaches. The store's grand opening is scheduled for Saturday, so save the date and get your favorite snakeskin accessories ready (or, maybe not?) [Crain's Chicago Business]
