Care sheets for pet reptiles: Overview
We have provided links to care sheets for pet reptiles, in our section 8. Links - Species Specific, where each reptile species that are common in the pet trade, are dealt with in detail, to the extent that we are now possibly the best website to do research on a specific reptile species with regard to its captive care. This has taken a huge investment in time and which will be ongoing, so we trust that you find this resource useful.
8. Links - Species Specific
In this section we deal with each species and provide links relative to the species under the following headings:-
Natural Habitat - Information on the species in its natural environment.
Captive care - Information on the captive care, feeding, housing and breeding of the species.
Breeders - The breeders who are internationally renowned for their expertise in breeding the species, as well as retailers who trade in the species.
Pictures - Any website that have exceptional pictures that depict the species and the variation in colors.
More - Any other links that are similar to the above, and add value or content in more general terms.
Other - Any other information that is applicable to the species, such as expected results from bites or instances where the species has been found to be invasive.
Taxonomy - The relevant Taxonomy information on the species.,
When reading information on the internet, be careful what you assume as fact . Anybody can sit and type up information and publish it on the internet. That does mean it is factually correct. And yes, that includes us, but at least we do try and get our facts right.
For this reason we provide more than one link on each species and although it is difficult with the number of care sheets we are linking to we have read each one and have disregarded those that are grossly inaccurate. So please browse through these links read and get confirmation form a different source before assuming as fact.
If a care sheet, that we have provided a direct link to, is very inaccurate, please advise us so that we can take suitable corrective action.

In addition the the above, we also have links to care sheets that are arranged as follows:-
