Reptile Care Basics
  1. Pythons
    Included in this section are Ball Pythons, Reticulated Pythons, and Tree Pythons. Each species has specific care and environmental requirements. One common trait amongst pythons is they tend to eat live prey directly in relation to their size(mice, rats, rabbits). Though Pythons can be trained to eat pre-killed it can be a difficult transition. Ball Pythons and Tree Pythons are the most common of household pets and are easily cared for and house in a 20 gallon tank for most their lives. They require a temperature variance of 75-90 degrees, and this is mostly provided by heat mats or heat cord ran through branches. They can live awards of 15 years.
  2. Geckos
    Included in this section is crested geckos, leopard geckos, and African fat tail geckos and gargoyle geckos. Geckos tend to eat insects and bugs such as crickets and mealworms. Most geckos will only accept live insects, although lizards such as crested geckos will also accept mashed fruit. 10-20 gallon tanks will usually house most species happily for the entirety of their lives. Desert dwelling species such as the leopard require heat lamps or under-tank heaters, while more tropical species can even be kept at room temperatures. Most geckos make great first reptiles, as many are docile and low maintenance. Each species has slightly different care requirements, so be sure to do thorough research to ensure you’re giving the best care possible.
