3 New Year's Resolutions any Herp Owner should Keep
With Christmas upon us (and the New Year fast approaching) it's a perfect time to think about your New Year's resolutions. As we think about ways to improve ourselves, let's not forget about our ability (and responsibility) to improve the lives of our reptile and amphibian pets, as well. So, for 2017, I propose every pet owner adopts at least 1 New Year's Resolution for our pets. Here are 3 that any pet owner can take on in the new year:
2. Sanitize your Pet's EnclosureA clean home is a happy home, especially for reptiles and amphibians. Stick to a schedule and keep your pet's habitat clean! Change substrate as needed, and spot clean often. don't forget to clean your pet reptile's or amphibian's water bowl frequently, as many species like to use it as a latrine. Use a quality cleaner when disinfecting your pet's habitat, such as
Josh's Frogs Reptisan.
3. Enrich your Animal's EnvironmentIn the wild, animals frequently encounter new and novel situations. Mimic this in captivity by providing them with
new cage decor, such as fake plants or hides. Maybe treat them to a new and interesting feeder insect, or a new and exotic veggie for those herbivorous herps. Consider keeping your critters in a naturalistic vivarium, if possible. Switch it up!
