All about reptiles


Green iguana:
80% of the iguana's diet consists of vegetables, 10% of fruits, and the rest of the foods that are given occasionally. Recommended: cabbage, radicchio, rocket, broccoli, beets, zucchini, carrots, cucumber, endive, radicchio, bananas, apples, watermelons, melons, papayas, mangoes. Plant foods are torn or cut into pieces, because iguanas cannot chew raw hard vegetables. From other foods, hard-boiled eggs, pasta, boiled rice, bread, fruit yogurt are occasionally given. Vitamin-mineral supplements are given 2-3 times a week. The container with fresh water must always be in the terrarium, and the iguana will occasionally bathe in it.

Bearded agama:
They are omnivores, their diet must consist of insects, vegetables and fruits. For optimal digestion, it is important to leave the lights on for at least two hours after feeding. The adult agama should eat 70% of vegetables, and 30% of insects, while in juvenile animals, up to a period of one year, the relationship is reversed. They are prone to fattening, so "triple" feeding is advised: salad day, insect day, fasting day. Crickets are the best source of food of animal origin, but make sure that they are not longer than the width between agama's eyes. From plant foods, you offer daily chopped green salad of various types, as well as grated vegetables. Offer fruit once a week. Harmful foods for bearded agamas are scrolls, rhubarb and avocado.

Water agama:
Water agamas are carnivores, and they feed on live food (a wide range of insects such as crickets and various worms, which are good to pre-vitaminize with multivitamin and mineral supplements). Adult agamas can also be offered fresh fruits and vegetables, which are also additionally enriched with vitamin supplements. Small fish and pinkies can also be offered, but care should be taken not to grow agama. Young agamas are fed daily, while adults once or twice a week. Fresh water must always be available to them.

Leopard Gecko:
Is a carnivore or beetle eater. It feeds on mealworms, zophobas, cockroaches, earthworms, crickets, locusts and "pinky" rodents. Meadow insects are an excellent dietary choice, but care should be taken that they are not poisonous or do not belong to the group of beetles (mara beetle), which have a thicker chitin impenetrable shell.
An adult gecko eats up to 10 insects (three times a week), and younger ones eat up to 5 smaller insects every day. They also enjoy licking juicy fruits like papaya, kiwi and peeled mango. It is necessary to add a preparation rich in calcium and vitamins (especially D3) to the diet of young geckos every day, and to the diet of adult geckos every third day. All food (insects, pinky mice) offered to the gecko must be alive, because that is the only way I can spot it. It is desirable to feed them in the evening. Phobos are more suitable for larger members, and mealworms are the worst food choice.

Forest turtle:
They feed on a mixture of grass and clover with the addition of leaves, dandelion flowers, buckthorn, vines, mulberry and rose leaves. They are exclusively herbivores, although sometimes in nature they can swallow snails.
From the food, offer them lettuce (endive), tomato, red radish, rocket, dill, hay, nettle. Occasionally offer them mango, melon and watermelon. They are not allowed to eat spinach, greens and kale. Pure calcium carbonate powder should be added to the diet of young animals and pregnant females every day, and adults every third day.

They feed on crickets, cockroaches, worms (an adult king scorpion needs 3-6 adult worms a week) rolled in vitamin and mineral powder.

Tarantula - Grammostola rosea:
They feed on live food: cockroaches, locusts, crickets, worms, and adults can sometimes eat small one-day-old mice (pinky).

Royal python:
If properly fed, the king pythons' bodies become beautifully shaped and round. Feeding snakes is quite simple. In nature, they eat small rodents, and they will eat a bird if they manage to catch it. In captivity, the basic food is mice and rats, which depends on the size of the snake. Royal pythons fast from October to April when the daily temperature should not exceed 32 ° C. In order to minimize the aggression of your snake, you can feed it outside the terrarium in a handy box, which makes the snake get used to the contact, and it itself feels safe outside the terrarium.

As babies, they feed on newly hatched mice, the so-called pinkies. As they grow, so does the size of the prey. The rule is that the prey should be slightly thicker than the snake and when swallowed it should be seen a slight thickening in the middle of the snake. When they grow up, they eat adult mice, hamsters or rats some 5-6 weeks old. They feed every 5 days when they are young and later it can be thinned to some 10 days or more when the specimens are almost adult.
