Frequently Asked Questions

Does it bite?

Anything with a mouth can bite :) 

When an animal feel threatened it triggers a fight or flight reaction. Depending on the animal and the situation, yes it can bite, but most likely will not if the right respect is given.

How big of an enclosure does my snake need?

We follow the "L" shape rule. If the snakes body can stretch along the side of the tank with its head and tail touching parallel corners than the enclosure is too small. 

What is a bio active?

A bio active enclosure is a self sustaining ecosystem with live plants, clean up crews, lighting and the appropriate substrate. 

My snake got out, how do I find it?

There are a few different options but I like to put flour on the floor. When the snake goes over it on the floor it will leave a marked path. 

You need both UVB and Heat bulbs providing a basking temperature of 100 degrees. You need a basking spot, a hide, and a food dish.

What are the minimum requirements for a bearded dragon?

None! In order for your snake to thrive, it requires a heat source.

What snakes don't require heat?

Your snake should be eating a meal with the same thickness as the thickest part of its body.

What size food should my snake eat?

Bearded dragons are solitary reptiles and are more than happy in their own space. Some females can be housed with another female of similar age and size but we don't recommend co-housing at all unless you are pairing for breeding.
