Reptiles make fascinating pets! But each one needs different care. Bearded Dragons love to bask under a bright heat lamp. However, leopard geckos have eyes that are very sensitive to UV light. Instead we use a heat pad and make sure to keep him out of harsh sunlight. Healthy pets are the happiest!
Tiny Tails to You is under the hangar at the Mueller Farmer's Market in Austin (Sunday's 11am-1pm). We "hop" to see you there!
Thank you so much to our employee of the month- Zac! We are so lucky to have had his awesome animal handling skills on the Tiny Tails to You team for almost 2 years. Zac's favorite animal friend is the resilient Leopard gecko! Geckos are incredible! They can survive weeks without food because of the fat stored in their squishy tales. And to cover their tracks from predators they will eat their shedding! 🐊🌱 .
Tortoises may seem tough enough to handle anything, but when the temperature starts dipping below 40 degrees F; it's too chilly for even the most thick shelled critters.
