What Kind of Supplies Do You Need?
Choosing the proper supplies for your reptile is the first step to successful care and keeping. Your reptile's life will depend on the knowledge you obtain, the care you provide, and the supplies that make that care possible.
That's why we created this section of our website to help you research, select and purchase the reptile supplies you need to take excellent care of your lizard, tortoise or snake. You'll also find a collection of articles at the bottom of this page that discuss various products in more detail. But let's start with the basics.
Here are some tips for choosing the right care and cage supplies for the particular species you are keeping:
- First, conduct the proper research to find out which supplies you will need for your reptilian friend. Start by reading a care manual on your particular type of reptile pet. You can also find a lot of care information online, including the library of articles on our website. This is the first step to selecting the right supplies - always!
- Next, make a list of the items you need for your pet. Categorize each item in one of two ways either as something you need from the start (like heating devices), or something you can delay until later (like feeding tongs).
- With your list of reptile supplies in hand, begin shopping through the websites of various pet supply companies. We recommend starting with the website listed above.
- Compare prices to see who has the best deals on the products you need. Just remember that cheap reptile supplies are not always the best supplies. Start with trustworthy products first, and then try to find a good deal on those products.
More Advice on Reptile Care Products
I've said it before, but I'll say it again: Research is the first step to choosing reptile supplies for your pet. Before you pull out your wallet, you should read at least three care sheets on the species you plan to keep. Why three? Because some of the information found within these care sheets is a matter of preference, while other parts are absolute requirements. By reading several articles on the particular species you're keeping, you'll have a well-rounded understanding of the care requirements. After that, selecting the right reptile supplies will be simple for you.
Here are some articles to get you started. Note that these articles pertain to reptiles in general, and not a particular species. But they're still worth reading!
