Reptile Books

If you’ve chosen a reptile as a pet, welcome to the wonderful world of reptile ownership! While reptiles are not for everyone, they make wonderful pets for those of you who are not squeamish about snakes, lizards and other popular pet reptiles and amphibians. Just as with our four-legged friends like cags, dogs, ferrets and the like, reptiles require that you create a home for them that is safe, comfortable and as much like their natural habitat as possible. It’s our job as their caretaker to make the time and put forth the effort to create a wonderful environment for them in their new home. Unlike dogs and cats, reptiles are taken from a wild habitat and placed in a domesticated one inside our homes, so you have to do research to learn how to set up a habitat in your home that is just like their natural habitat in the wild. Zen Pet Supplies carries a number of reptile books that will teach you everything you need to know to care for your new pet.
We encourage you to buy one or more of these books about reptiles, so you are fully aware of what to expect with your new pet. These books have tons of helpful information regarding how to set up their habitat, what to feed them, what their mating habits are and how the interact with humans. All of the reptile books in our current inventory are extremely inexpensive and many are under $3. By reading about your pet reptile before his arrival into your home, you will be able to set up a great habitat (terrarium) that will provide your reptile a safe, comfortable and interesting environment that allows them to thrive.

In our current inventory, we carry books about hermit crabs, bearded dragons, turtles, and geckos. If you’d like a book about a different type of reptile, please check back to our website soon because we add to our inventory on a regular basis. An experienced reptile caretaker will tell you that different types require different habitats and food. If you have a snake, for instance, and are thinking about adding a bearded dragon to your family, you cannot assume you can use the same type of substrate and terrarium accessories for the dragon and snake. In fact, some types of substrate and food that work for one type of reptile can be dangerous to another type. By choosing a reptile book from Zen Pet Supplies, you can educate yourself about your new pet’s particular needs. Please contact us via the website if you can’t find what you’re looking for, and we’ll see what we can do to help you find it.
