TIP #1

Reptiles are exothermic; they cannot create their own heat, so they depend on an external heat source for warmth.

TIP #2

Correct humidity is important for reptiles all the time, but pay extra attention when they are shedding.

TIP #3

To keep adequate humidity levels in your terrarium, Mist your tank daily with room temperature water in a spray bottle.
