Pet Reptiles need to live as close as possible as they would in their natural environment. This means that specific living conditions need to be provided. Most importantly, heating that is controlled within specific temperature ranges, lighting to provide sufficient UV, and adequate humidty. They also need suitable substrate, somewhere to sleep, places to hide, things to climb and sit on, dishes for food and water.
Reptiles should eat a diet similar to what they would eat in the wild. Reptile food must provide adequate nutrition, and supplements should be used to help ensure they get all the nutrients they need. Dried reptile food can be very convenient to use as part of a balanced diet.It is also a good idea to have temporary housing for any trips to the vets.
