Reptile Substrate in Massachusetts
As a loving pet owner, you want your reptile friend to live a long and healthy life. Your reptile’s substrate is often more important than you think, and makes a huge difference to their health, happiness, and quality of life. You may think the best thing to do is find what he would be living in if he were in the wild, but this is misguided. Substrates should not be collected in the wild as the soil, leaves, and sand may contain organisms that are harmful to your reptile. Even if you don’t use herbicides and pesticides in your yard, these chemicals are transported through the air as both dry and wet deposits, and so it is recommended to buy it from a trusted retailer. This substrate is made of wood shavings or compressed wood fibers, compressed recycled paper fibers, processed plant fibers, or clay. It may sound simple, but the right kind of substrate, made of quality material, will make your reptile feel right at home in his terrarium.
