Make sure you can house a reptile. One of the biggest considerations in choosing a pet should be assessing whether you can even have that pet in your home. There may be restrictions due to the terms of your lease, the input of your housemates (especially if you still live at home), or the needs and requirements of the reptile you're thinking of adopting


If you're handling a reptile for the first time, or if you're looking to improve your reptile handling skills, here are 13 tips to help you out:

1. Wash your hands thoroughly before and after handling your reptile, to avoid transmitting bacteria or other pathogens.

2. Avoid handling your reptile if you have any cuts or open wounds on your hands.

3. Handle your reptile gently and carefully to avoid injuring it.

4. Keep an eye on your reptile at all times to make sure it isn't escaping.

5. Return your reptile to its enclosure immediately after handling it.
