Supplies for Your Reptile Pet
There is a wide variety of supplies for pets and a pet reptile supply is probably the best choice when buying for an exotic reptilian animal.
Stores that cater to a particular species are more likely to provide targeted products in a wider variety that will help you to ensure the health and longevity of your household pet. You can find a lot of items for your snake or lizard to fulfill just about any need. We will cover only a few here.
Whether you have a turtle, corn snake, gecko or bearded dragon you will find most reptile supply houses carry all that you need for these easy to keep reptiles. Snakes like a king snake and those tough looking box turtles all eat different stuff though so let"s start with food for your reptile.
So you have a lizard and you really want to feed the fella a cricket, no problem most pet supplies have them hopping and chirping in a back room somewhere. But is it healthy to buy a lot of crickets and just dump them in the cage.
The answer is probably no. the best thing to do is buy some crickets from the pet store and some vitamins and put vitamins on a few crickets and then feed to your lizard.
What should you look for at a pet supply to feed your corn snake? Well corn snakes will eat rodents but in the wild they also eat birds and other lizards. The reptile house should have plenty of various size mice to feed your snake. Be sure to provide the proper vitamins for your pet too.
For climate control and proper lighting for your pet you might need several items. Where a corn snake only needs a normal florescent light and a heating mat a bearded dragon would require a reptile lamp and something like a ceramic heater. The habitat of the bearded dragon is a world of High sunlight where they run around all day and absorb the sun to help digest food.
A lizard like a leopard Geckos needs fresh water but only would need a shallow container and basically dry housing with only an occasional misting so no misting systems is necessary but many other exotic pets need water conditioners and misting systems.
There are really nice habitat accessories like waterfalls at most of the reptilian supply houses. But what else might you want to look at?
Bedding is important as some snakes need a certain type to ensure they donít consume the bedding while they eat their meal. You can buy sand that is actually designed to be digestible so no harm is caused. While there is corn cob which is not digestible and aspen and forest bark. You must research what your pet needs before buying these supplies.
There are so many items you could buy that this page would soon be a book, which it is highly recommended that you purchase a book at the pet reptile supply at the same time or even before you buy your new pet.
