Introduction to Reptile Care

While certain species of reptiles can make fantastic pets, even for beginners, knowledge about their unique environmental, dietary and medical needs is crucial.

Caring for a reptile differs from other types of pet care, as reptiles have very different requirements than birds or mammals. Reptiles that do not have these needs addressed often fall sick and may not be able to enjoy long lifespans.

This course gives you a thorough introduction to proper reptile care split into two modules.

The first module addresses general environmental needs, while also providing a brief overview of reptile ownership.

Our second module dives into the medical issues that your reptile may face, along with the nutritional requirements that responsible reptile owners must fulfil, if they are to raise happy and healthy reptiles.
