Chico’s lizard king

says Paul Benson, now 73, who back in his 20s regularly rode his motorcycle in the desert near Cal State Northridge, where he attended college. He’d ride out in search of snakes and lizards, which often brought him a week’s worth of pay from local pet stores. He channeled this knack for turning play into business into Animal Specialties, a multimillion-dollar business located near the Chico Municipal Airport. What’s more, Benson became America’s largest breeder of the most popular pet lizard in the U.S.: the dinosaur-like, Australian bearded dragon. While not a retail store (Benson sells exclusively as a wholesaler), Animal Specialties also offers snakes, frogs and even insects as pet food. -- Chico News Review
