CARE SHEETS

 

Links to care articles for some common reptile species. No need to re-invent the wheel, these experts have already provided this information.  We suggest extensive research into any species of reptile you consider keeping as a pet. There are some reptiles that are very easy to take care of, while others should only be kept by experienced individuals. Please take the time to understand what type of reptile is right for you and make sure you can provide the proper diet and care for the animal!   By linking to these pages, Arrowhead Reptile Rescue is no way supporting or confirming accuracy of the information provided by third-party sources.
