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.

Get Your Reptile Supplies Online

Sunday, August 16, 2015 2:13:17 PM America/Los_Angeles

Reptile SuppliesIf you own any type of reptile of your own then you likely already know just how difficult it can be for you to get a hold of all of the supplies you need. Pet stores are becoming fewer and fewer, with only the large, big box chain stores taking over in some areas and forcing the smaller, specialty pet stores out of the market. The problem is that these large stores tend to place more of a focus on dogs and cats and have limited resources set aside for reptiles and reptile supplies, making it hard for you to find a place nearby to get what you need. That is why if you are a reptile owner you should strongly consider an online reptile supply store as your best option.

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.

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.

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.
