When caring for a reptile, your two top priorities should always be its health and happiness. Taking care of these two priorities means there are many things to consider. The type of cage it will live in… the temperature/climate of its cage/aquarium/terrarium. There are also reptile food, water, and handling to consider… not to mention things that are easily unforgettable as the type of lining for the floor of the cage.
What kind of reptile are you looking for? a snake? Lizard? a lizard? A turtle? No matter what type of reptile you want to get, the Mail rule is the same: Do specific research about your reptile so you know what reptile supplies you need to successfully care for your pet.

Research: Check the internet first to find out as much as you can about the type of reptile you plan to own. Remember, like humans, every reptile is different, so you need to be sure of the specific requirements for the species you're buying.
Make a list: After determining how to help keep your new pet healthy and happy, make a list of things you'll need right away and things that can wait. For example, things you'll need right away include a cage or aquarium, a heating device, some sort of cage floor, a thermometer so you can know the temperature of the cage, and a whole host of other things. Items that can wait are more luxurious items, such as feeding tongs and aesthetic details for a reptile house.
Shopping Research: Once you've made a list of the items you need, check websites and/or pet stores in your neighborhood to find the best products and best prices. You may purchase different items at different stores because some stores deal with specific items and may offer better pricing on those items.
Most importantly, when getting a reptile, it's all about the research. Once you know as much as you can about your specific reptile type, you have the knowledge needed to search reptile supply and pet stores that best fit your pet.
