Iguanas make the perfect pets for people who do not like much animal training involved. These creatures do not need regular walks or potty training. However, this does not mean that responsibility is no longer an issue. Proper iguana care is still very necessary. Before you get a pet iguana, there are several factors that you have to take into consideration.
You need to make sure that all objects in the Terrarium Workshops are “soft,” with no sharp edges. Tarantulas are great climbers, and if they fall on anything sharp, they can die.
Leopard geckos are considered to be very inexpensive pets and perfect as a pet for people who love animals but can not afford an expensive dog or cat.
Aquatic turtles, such as the red eared slider, need to have a terrarium, which is what the turtle aquariums are called (since they have land, not full of water). This terrarium needs to be outfitted with a water pond for the turtle to swim, and a large rock for the turtle to bask. The Terrarium workshop should also be equipped with a special reptile light, which shines both UVA and UVB light. Turtles can be messy creatures, so the water part of the tank should have a filtration system, and the tank will require cleaning often. Finally, turtles need to be in a temperature regulated environment. The terrarium should be kept inside, and should be heated on those cold nights.
Stand – you’ll need a dedicated space for your tank that keeps your gecko elevated. This is especially important if there are children or other pets in the house.
Now, it’s time for soil. Choose a good organic potting mix. I like Organic Mechanics, but your garden center can suggest alternatives. Lay down a layer that’s a few inches thick, keeping in mind that you can always add more.
Aquatic turtles can make great pets, but not for very small children. Children should also be taught that turtles can carry disease, so they should not put them in their mouth.
