Caring for Your Reptile
Reptiles can make great pets. Like every animal, they require care specific to their species to live a happy and healthy life. Here are some tips from PETA concerning the specialized care for these snakes, iguanas and geckos.
Snakes must be kept in clean tanks, larger than 30-gallons, within controlled temperatures. These animals are susceptible to many illnesses and must see a vet regularly.
Green iguanas require long-term care and financial investment. These animals can grow to be six-feet long and live for more than two decades. They require a very specific diet, habitat and veterinary attention which can make their cost of care high.
Geckos are much smaller than iguanas but can live much longer. They require a diet of insects and mice. These animals also need to be housed in a very specific environment with a temperature that does not change.
