Keeping Reptiles as Pets

Reptiles are egg laying vertebrates that have a
tough skin with a covering of scales. Reptiles are cold blooded.

There are 4 orders of reptiles:

1. snakes, amphisbaenians & lizards
2. crocodiles, alligators & caimans
3. tortoises, turtles
4. tuataras

Some reptiles make very good pets, others like
crocodiles and venomous snakes do not. We suggest
before getting a reptile as a pet, you do some
research and make sure this is the kind of pet you
are wanting.

Many folks believe that reptiles are fairly easy to
keep as pets, but this is not usually the case. Reptiles
as pets require excellent care and housing along with
a proper diet.

If you have or want a reptile as a pet, then we hope
you enjoy our site and find it helpful in taking the
best care of your pet you can.
