The Different Types of Water Bowls for Reptiles

Monday, January 23, 2017 3:48:46 AM America/Los_Angeles

You want to be sure that you have everything you need so that your pet is happy, healthy and comfortable all of the time. This is particularly true of a unique pet like a reptile. Reptiles often have very special needs, depending on the particular species, and may need to have certain special supplies to make their living environment as good as possible. When you are first setting up your cage or tank for your pet, you want to give close consideration to the type of bowls you select to use in the tank for food and water. At the Painted Reptile, we offer water bowls for reptiles that are specifically designed for different reptiles to provide them with clean, easy access they need to water each day.

 

 

Natural-Looking Dishes

 

When you are thinking about bowls for water for your pet, you do want to consider what type of reptile you own and how they would typically access water when they are living in the wild. Most reptiles may only have the need for a shallow water dish that is easy for them to access when they want water. You may not want something that is deep or difficult to climb out of for them since this can create a hazard, particularly for smaller reptiles that might have a hard time scaling smooth-sided bowls. We offer a variety of different water dishes that are varying sizes and depths and have a natural look to them so that they can blend in nicely with the environment in the cage and have your reptile feel comfortable.

 

A Source for Proper Bowls

 

Many reptile owners run into the problem of finding different types of water bowls for reptiles in their local area. The bowls found at the usual pet store or large pet store chain may not be best suited for a reptile, meaning you have to try to make do with what you have or get creative and come up with something on your own. That is why we offer a variety of bowls on our website so that you can easily select a style and size suitable for your pet and have it shipped right to your home.

You will also need to take the dog out several times a day for walks and to relieve themselves and you are going to need to feed it several times a day. Reptiles are much easier for you to care for on a regular basis. Reptile is quiet and relatively odor free. While your reptile needs to be on some type of feeding schedule, most do not need to eat every day and their cages or tanks do not need to be cleaned nearly as often as you have to clean up after a dog or cat.

Access to Unfiltered Sunlight

 

Reptiles such as iguanas or bearded dragons are accustomed to having easy access to all of the sunlight that they want to help keep them happy and healthy. When reptiles like this are limited to what is available indoors in a tank, they may not be able to thrive as well as they could. This is where having an outdoor cage can be of great benefit to you. When your reptile is allowed to roam around outside in its cage, it will have access to all of the unfiltered sunlight that it needs. Your pet will get all that it requires from a more natural habitat, giving it the opportunity to thrive like it will not be able to do if it were indoors.

 

Things to Keep in Mind

 

If you are going to have an outdoor reptile cage for your pet, there are a few things that you want to keep in mind. First, you want to make sure that the cage that you have chosen is structurally sound and completely secure. This is for the overall safety of your pet. Making sure that your cages secure will help to prevent your pet from easily escaping and getting away but it will also help to keep out any potential predators that may want to harm your pet. You also want to keep in mind that an outdoor cage for reptile will really only work well in a warmer environment so that they can be sure to get the warmth and sunlight that they need regularly.

The Health and Safety of Your Reptiles in Summer

Friday, August 19, 2016 11:27:57 PM America/Los_Angeles

Summer is proven to be difficult for reptile breeders. The health and safety of reptiles should be a top priority. For that reason, it is ideal to choose the best reptile breeding racks with some special devices to keep tabs on the conditions in a tank.

At Painted Reptile, we recommend having thermometers and humidity gauges. They allow you to get accurate readings to reach the most recommended thermal gradient. Now, if the racks need adjustments in their temperature, it is good to stock up on watt lamps.

 

The Health and Safety of Your Reptiles in Summer

 

It is also ideal to have humidifying devices as the summer months roll on.

One of the worst things that you can do to your reptiles is to place the reptile breeding racks in direct sunlight. Amplifying the temperature is proven to be lethal to your reptiles. Most reptiles can manage certain degrees of cold. However, extreme heat can kill some reptiles in minutes.

If you are buying reptiles in summer, it is best to transport them directly to your home. During transport, ensure that you keep them in the shade, and the air conditioning system should be on all the time.

Temperature range that reptiles need

It depends on the kind of reptile you keep. Tropical species requires temperatures between 80F and 100F. Temperate species need temperatures between 70F and 90F.

Cleanliness is vital for your reptiles’ health and safety in summer. When you are handling a reptile of any kind, make sure to wash your hands after. Then, wear latex gloves, especially when you handle critters as their skin secretes toxins.

You must provide clean food and water each day to remove residue and safeguard your pets against harmful bacteria.

Don’t allow young children to handle the animals. If they want to, they must be monitored so they won’t put them in their mouth.

If you are just purchasing reptiles, you need to ask the retailer of what animals can live together in one cage. Bear in mind that different species need different heat, light, space and food. Avoid putting incompatible reptiles together as it can only cause tragedy.

 

The Health and Safety of Your Reptiles in Summer

 

Ensure that the lines of communication between you and your retailer are open. Make sure that you only deal with educated retailers. In this way, you can avoid becoming an impulsive buyer the may affect how you care for the reptiles.

Before you buy reptiles as your pet, you should educate yourself about the health and safety of these animals. If you are breeding, ensure that you know the right breeding racks you need.

Reptile Enclosures Tips for Beginners

Sunday, August 14, 2016 11:12:29 PM America/Los_Angeles

Reptile enclosures are necessary for your pet reptiles. Unlike dogs and cats, reptiles require minimal care. Unfortunately, if you are uninformed on how to take care of these animals, you will surely make those basic mistakes. Some of these errors are costly.

In this post, let’s talk about essential reptile enclosures tips to ensure the health and safety of your reptiles.

The Size

Before you purchase reptile enclosures, make sure that you know your pet reptiles. In this way, you become aware of how large they can grow. Bear in mind that reptiles can grow four feet long while others can grow more than that.

 

Reptile Enclosures Tips for Beginners

 

For example, if you are purchasing a Burmese photon, you will need huge cages. If you don’t have enough space in your house, it is better to avoid such pet.

When it comes to cage size, you should avoid scrimping. Bear in mind that having a cage that’s too small can be stressful to your pet reptiles. At Painted Reptile, we always ask our clients what reptiles they have before we suggest a reptile enclosure.

To give your pets an adequate comfort, the cage should match the reptile’s length or size. If you are breeding or having snakes as pets, you should consider that snakes can grow quickly. Thus, it is vital to pick cages that are already big enough.

The reptiles

Some reptiles are docile while others are not. Thus, if you are a first-time reptile owner, make sure that you know what particular specimen you want to have and know how it can be handled as a pet. Since it is your first-time to make reptiles as pets, ensure that you choose the ones that can be handled easily.

Never choose a reptile that’s finicky eater. Instead, opt for the one with a hearty appetite. In this way, you don’t have to find exotic foods for it.

 

Reptile Enclosures Tips for Beginners

The hygiene

Some reptiles can spread salmonella and other diseases. Although the risks are subtle, you should play safe. It is especially true if you have kids or people in your house with compromised immune systems.

 Don’t just focus on the type of reptile enclosures your pet must have. Instead, get to know the reptile’s hygiene before you even purchase one.

 These tips are just basic advice. At Painted Reptile, we recommend our clients to read up or get to know the care and maintenance of the reptile they wish to have as a pet. Conducting basic research can prevent aggravation in the future.

Chameleons are Colorful and in Demand

Tuesday, August 9, 2016 10:46:28 PM America/Los_Angeles

When people think of reptiles for pets, they immediately consider crested geckos or snakes. But they are not the only reptiles for pets that you can find at Painted Reptile and other reptile shops. Chameleon, for one, is one of the most popular species in the reptile family.

 Although chameleons grow in popularity, consumers have some misconceptions about them. When you overcome those mistakes, however, you would find that they are friendly.

 

Chameleons are Colorful and in Demand

 

 Chameleons belong to the Chamaeleonidae family. This family has approximately 200 species across all continents in the eastern hemisphere. They are known for their zygodactylous feet and long sticky tongues.

 The most common type of chameleons in the pet trade is the Panther type.

 Caring for chameleons may vary from one species to another. However, most of them can survive in a humid environment with enough airflow. Cages for this type of reptile usually have mesh sides, instead of the glass ones. In this way, the reptiles will have better airflow and circulation.

Are chameleons aggressive?

This is one of the misconceptions that must be corrected. Chameleons hiss as part of their defense mechanisms. If they could sense that you are an intruder, they immediately show their mouth, or they may bite you.

 Captive chameleons demonstrate that genetic trait. Once they have adapted to their environment, they could change such habit.

 For that reason, it is best to know how to make chameleon as a pet. Chameleons tend to dislike petting, which may lead to their aggressive reactions. If you are a first-time reptile owner, make sure that you know the emotional responses that are natural to these species.

 When it comes to their diet, chameleons can thrive on meal worms or wax worms. They also need food each day. Depending on the species, you can feed them once or twice a day. But they should have constant access to food. However, when they get older, you can feed them less often.

 

Chameleons are Colorful and in Demand

 

 Then, make sure that you also stock up on necessary supplements. they need them for their continual health. Even if they eat crickets, you still need to give them vitamins and minerals.

 Should you decide to own a chameleon as a pet, consider purchasing a cage and the animal. Some shops that sell reptiles for pets offer their chameleons for free when you buy an enclosure and its necessary caging elements.

 If you wish to know more about chameleons and other reptiles for pets, call us 818-654-9441. Our staff will be ready to assist and answer all questions about chameleons.
