Our commitment to conservation and preservation run deep! That’s why we focus on educating the public about some of the best reptiles on the market for keeping as pets, and the care that they require to remain happy and healthy. Too many animals end up in rescues or perish because they’re owners did not have the knowledge or resources to provide them the care that they need to survive and flourish. To reduce the number of animals in shelters and the number of heartbreaks from animals that succumb to preventable illness we aim to inform current and future reptile owners about the habitat, lighting, humidity, nutrition, and other critical care needs of their animals before disaster strikes. It is our fervent hope that the more the public knows about these amazing creatures, the better owners they can be, and that will translate into fewer animals in shelters, or worse. Afterall – Reptanicals is “Here to heal.”

We like to stress the importance of choosing captive bred animals whenever possible! This ensures that you can talk to the breeder to validate that they have a reputable and clean facility that produces healthy animals. You can also find out more information about your particular animal, their preferences, and their needs. This in turn will reduce the number of sick or unhealthy animals on the market, and hopefully diminish the importation of wild species from their native homes for the pet industry.
