Reptile Bedding

As you read through our product pages for pet reptiles, you will see a word used quite often—vivarium. A vivarium is simply any area (that’s usually enclosed) for keeping and raising animals or plants for observation, enjoyment or research. A terrarium is a type of vivarium, and an aquarium is a type of vivarium. So, as you read, please keep in mind that terrariums are used to house pet reptiles, and a terrarium is a type of vivarium. Ok, now that English class is over, let’s get to the products featured here—bedding for all types of reptiles you may have as pets. Whether you have pet turtles, tortoises, snakes, frogs, hermit crabs, lizards or bearded dragons, you’ll find all the different types of bedding they like right here at the Zen Pet Supplies’ online store. We encourage you to do some research online before choosing your pet’s bedding because different types of species require certain types of bedding.

You’ll also find environmentally sound products for the bottom of your reptile’s terrariums like carpet that’s made from 100% post-consumer recycled plastic bottles. How cool is that? It’s nice to know there are many uses for all those water bottles we dispose of every day.

As you read through our reptile product pages, another word you will see often is “substrate,” which is whatever materials or substances line the bottom of your reptile’s habitat. Various types of pets require different types of substrate, so, this too, will require some research on your part as you want to get the perfect substrate for your pet. You can also speak to an experienced reptile owner to learn more about the type of bedding and substrate your reptile will need. As with any pet, we recommend that you set up the habitat before his arrival. It’s just too stressful to run around and get everything you need after your pet has arrived at your home. Minimize your stress and that of your pet by having his home away from his natural habitat ready upon his arrival.
