What Is The Best Way To Use A Pvc Reptile Enclosure?
The way I see it there are two types of people when it comes to Pvc enclosures for snakes. One type of person is wanting a pet that can handle all the cleaning and the work and does not require a lot of upkeep. This is understandable, most snakes do not like living in the wild. They also love the warmth of a new cage but many cannot handle the additional clean up and may not want to do this anymore once they have acclimatized to their new home. In these situations it can be very beneficial to get an inexpensive pre-built enclosure that you can move around and use depending on how your snake will react to it.
The second type of person is one that wants a pet that will live for a long time and is going to be around a lot. If this is the case then the best solution is going to be a UV tank or a glass enclosure. Not everyone has the money or the space to build a traditional glass aquarium that is UV sterilized. For the few people who do not have the room or the money for this option there are many stores that sell a UV sterilized reptile enclosure that will meet most needs and provide many years of quality service and enjoyment to you and your pet snakes.
The cost of these enclosures varies based on size and type. A small glass enclosure will cost much less than one that is comparable in size to a large aquarium. You can also choose different sizes depending on what snake you are purchasing. Snakes such as king snakes or better snakes can grow to quite a large size, so you may want a bigger enclosure if you have a large pet. You can purchase an inexpensive pre-made glass enclosure and have it installed professionally so there will not be any extra cost for this service.
When choosing the type of enclosure you want you should consider the environment it will live in. If it will spend a lot of time outdoors, you may want to get a clear acrylic enclosure. This is the most popular but it can get rather overheated in direct sunlight. If you decide on an acrylic enclosure you can buy several pieces to assemble into one unit. Most people do not like having their pet snakes in the direct sunlight, but they do like it when it is cooler in the evening. It helps to keep their scales nice and shiny if they have not been sitting in the sunlight.
Another popular type of enclosure for a reptile is the acrylic mesh enclosure. This is pretty similar to the acrylic glass but it has more mesh surface area. The advantage of this is that your pet will have access to air flow while out of the water. Many pet stores carry these to help get your reptiles to feel comfortable during the warmer months of the year.
You can even buy a UV sterilized version of the above mentioned enclosure. They can also come with UV sterilization so you can give your snake’s a nice filter to clean out their system if they get sick. This will help to prevent any type of disease from being passed along to your reptile. Just make sure you always keep new substrate or old substrate moist at all times to avoid passing anything along to your reptile.
If you are looking for a way to get your pet a little extra warmth in the winter months, you might want to look into getting a reptile tank heater. This will allow you to even bring your pet in the cooler months and not worry about them freezing to death. It is always important to have your pets warm before or after bringing them in the winter. Sometimes you can even find heaters that you can mount on the side of your house. Some people even place them in their garage so they can be closer to their pets.
There are many different types of reptile enclosures to choose from. You should try to get one that fits your pet perfectly. Remember, you want to make sure it is secure for them and that they have enough space inside to move around. Even the smallest turtles need to have a good amount of room to move around in. Once you have made your purchase and have it set up, you will never want to be without your reptile enclosure again!
