Order: I have just receive my new pet, what should I do next?
Before receiving your pet it is best to have the enclosure fully set up with temperature and humidity levels running for a few days.
If you own other reptiles, we always recommend to quarantine any new pets ideally for three months and treat for internal/external parasites. This is mainly for Wild Collected (WC) animals as most species of lizards do have external parasites and/or worms.
Although we do our best to treat animals, it is down to you as the new owner to carry on treatment. If you are unsure, please ask and we will advise which product is best for the species in question.
Leave you new pet for at least two weeks to settle before handling - this is important to some snakes as this can put them off feeding if still young.
Any questions, please contact us, we are happy to help and advise.
