One of the most common items that people think will be safe to add to their reptiles habitat is branches. Though we’re sure that there are a number of different types of tree branches that are perfectly safe to add to your reptile’s cage, it’s vital that you do a little research first. For example, though pine and cedar branches may make your reptile’s cage smell amazing, they also contain oils that could seriously irritate your reptile’s skin. At The Painted Reptile, we’ve posted a number of safe and engaging wood based options that you can buy online as well.

On that note, it’s also extremely important to make sure that if you’ve gathered anything from the great outdoors, that it be thoroughly cleaned before it is introduced to your reptile’s cage. Take the time to soak anything that you’ve found outdoors in a light bleach/water solution for a full day. Afterwards, soak it in clean water for an additional day to make sure that all of the bleach remnants have been removed. This way you can be sure that you haven’t introduced any potentially harmful bacteria into your reptile’s living room.
