From dry deserts to humid rainforests, reptiles can live in so many different environments. There are many species to choose from, the variety is almost endless. You can have a carnivore or a herbivore, some very large and some itty bitty. Research is definitely vital in making your decision. A snake that is only 12 inches long now, could grow to 10 feet and you have to decide if you are prepared for that.
Every animal deserves a home for life and your responsibility as a pet owner is to make sure you are ready for that commitment. Habitats are very important for reptiles, so you must be ready to invest in providing them with a comfortable environment.
