Over 30 Years of Innovation. Started in 1977 by 19 year old Gary Bagnall and college friend Mark Lemke, ZooMed started as a reptile company out of a one car garage located in Costa Mesa, California. It has evolved into a company that introduced the first American reptile vitamin in 1982 and never looked back! Today the company holds 3 reptile product patents with 3 more pending. Zoo Med`s greatest accomplishment has been the invention of UVB lighting for reptiles, which took place in 1993 and became the standard the world over for Zoos, Veterinarians and the reptile hobbyist.
