This is the largest section of the website in terms of number of pages associated with it. Over a period of time in excess of 300 species of exotic pets will be covered. Everything from the humble corn snake to the blue-tailed tree lizard will be included in this.
In the guides you will find a range of information, including (but not limited to) scientific name, genus (family), origin, diet, life expectancy, and more. The internet is full of information on the more common species such as the royal python, but what about not as common ones such as the Girdle-tailed lizards? Don’t they deserve their own little corner of the internet? What I am trying to get across is that while there is a wealth of information on the common species, there isn’t much on the less common species. Thanks to this website, hopefully over time this will change and you should be able to easily find information on many more species.
While I won’t be offering direct care information, I will be giving the locality and general habits (climbing, burrowing, etc) which people can then use to form their own ideas on care. In the guides I cover the locality of the animal so you can find out the required temperature and humidity. Then its down to using your common sense, larger animals will require larger enclosures, look at the animals themselves, they are likely to be adapted in some way, be it for burrowing, climbing, swimming etc. Use these signs to work out the appropriate care.
