If you plan to acquire a turtle as a pet you are sure to be pleased with this new addition to your household. Just remember turtles are the kind of pets you spend most of your time watching and not handling. These animals do need some special attention and you should learn the basics about pet turtle care before you bring one home. Here are 3 tips that will help you establish the perfect environment for a turtle.
To me, juvenile beardies are among the most adorable creatures on the planet. A ten gallon aquarium or Terrarium is able to house up to two or three juveniles comfortably. You will need to provide a bowl of food (you can find bearded dragon food at your local pet store or online) and a few branches as well as rocks for them to beek on. As with all other creatures they will grow and will need a great deal more space than the juveniles. The adult dragon will require no less than 40 gallons of space and even this size of Terrarium Singapore is considered cramped. If you own more than one adult dragon the required terrarium size will increased significantly.
Some great ways to use your handmade terrariums might include decoration, gifting, or even selling at local craft shows or online. I bet your Mom would love to open up a package on Mother’s Day to find beautiful herbs that you planted yourself. Another great holiday would be Valentine’s Day for your significant other that loves to cook. Of course you could do them for birthdays and other holidays as well, but those were two of my favorites!
Caring for the plants is easy but there are a couple of rules you should adhere to. Do not excessively spring the fly traps shut. This is how they eat and they need to be open. Repeated use can also cause the traps to not function well. (It will only work five or six times then it will stop and the trap will die off). And you should never feed your plants ground hamburger. This is unhealthy for them and may kill them. Their metabolism is tuned to eating small insects not cows! If you keep your plants in an enclosed Terrarium workshop you will have to hand feed them yourself and a good source of food for them is small crickets, which can be bought at any well-stocked pet store.
Feed your frog suitably. These frogs love to eat crickets therefore, you must buy maximum small-sized crickets and house them in a cricket keeper until you feed them to your red eyed tree frog. Don’t be frightened with the idea of feeding your frog with crickets, as most people have problems picking them up. You can use tweezers, Popsicle sticks and other things to pick up crickets.
5)Do not grab or hold a lizard by the tail. Even though the tail of a bearded dragon, blue-tongue skink, or savanna monitor will not break off, it is uncomfortable for the lizard. Get used to holding the lizard by putting your hand under its belly and supporting its weight from below.
Other things that you should know include washing your hands well after handling your lizards, do not tease or annoy the animals, and be sure to keep the terrarium clean.
