If you’re considering bringing a new pet reptile into your life, don’t forget that you can adopt these animals just like you can adopt a dog or cat.
Most reptile species live at least 15-20 years. Some, like turtles, can live as long as 60 years.
A lot more of these animals are bred every year than people end up taking on as pets, and of those, a lot are given up for adoption- or euthanized.
Please consider reducing the demand for new baby reptiles by adopting from a reptile rescue.
