Only if you have a big cage that your pet cannot get into will you ever consider using any other type of cage for your reptile. Only then will you be able to make an appropriate decision for your beloved pet. PVC and glass Reptile enclosures are by far the two most preferred choices for reptiles by many pet owners. Especially when discussing glass and snake cages, most people rarely go for anything else than these two. So, what is the main difference between them?

The main difference is in the material used. Both of the Pvc Reptile Enclosure types are constructed from a material called “glass reinforced plastic” or sometimes referred to as “hardenized polycarbonate”. However, the biggest difference is in the manufacturing process. Pvc’s have a much smoother finish and both have a much nicer appearance than most glass enclosures, but which one would you prefer?

While it may look like the material is the same, that is not true. Even though glass and acrylic are both durable, they differ primarily in the strength of the barrier. Glass is often referred to as “a window into the world”, because the UV radiation it contains can lead to some serious health problems for reptiles. On the other hand, the majority of chemical fumes produced in the home environment and the temperature fluctuations generally experienced by reptiles lead to a condition called “thermitis”, which can sometimes be fatal.

It is also interesting to note that most people do not realize that a properly constructed PVC or glass enclosure will allow proper air circulation. Most standard glass enclosures have just a small opening for ventilation, which makes it difficult to keep your reptile’s healthy. You should also consider that most vases and crocks used for exotic reptiles contain up lighting, which can potentially kill your pets. Finally, it is very important that you properly install any uvb lighting you use, even when using a clear enclosure. There have been reports of the death of reptiles caused by UV light.

The good news is that with proper care and installation, PVC enclosures and 40 gallon tanks will provide many years of healthy living for your reptiles. Although it is recommended that you use a glass enclosure, you can easily install a PVC one. This will be more expensive initially, but you will also have to invest in additional filters and cleaning equipment to make sure your tanks are sterile at all times. Additionally, these enclosures will be easier to clean, so you can enjoy your investment without worrying about what toxic chemicals you may be exposing your pets to.

Once you have decided on the right enclosure for you and your reptiles, you will need to research the different heat bulb kits that are available on the market. It is generally a good idea to purchase a kit that uses a combination of red and green lights, as they will provide the best kind of light intensity needed to properly heat your pet turtle or reptile. However, many pet stores only carry a small selection of these heat bulb kits, so you may need to purchase them online in order to find exactly what you need. Keep in mind that the most expensive heat bulb kits will not provide the kind of light intensity needed to properly heat your exotic pets.

Proper heating and air conditioning are essential for keeping your turtles or lizards healthy. They need access to a consistent temperature gradient inside and outside of their enclosure, along with adequate humidity well above the norm. If you do not provide adequate humidity for them, you may find that they get sick often, which can prove fatal. A temperature gradient is a gradual rise and fall in temperature. The best enclosure for your exotic pet is one that offers good temperature control so that they will stay healthy and happy. There should also be enough ventilation so that moisture from the soil and substrate does not accumulate, which can also be harmful.

Once you have purchased your new terrarium or enclosure, there are a few things that you will need to keep in mind in order to maintain the health of your exotic pets. In the wild, turtles and tortoise eat insects and arthropods on a daily basis, so it is important that the foods that you provide them are not poisonous to them. You will also need to make sure that you monitor the temperatures of the water and the humidity well in order to keep your animals healthy and happy.
