We are a nation of pet lovers in the United Kingdom and most homes here have at least one pet. The popular choices are cats and dogs, but there are many other pets that you can choose from. Some of us are not your typical keeper of standard pets and we like to have something different. More and more people are choosing reptiles as pets because they can be much smaller, take up less room and are a little easier to take care of.
Many of us just don’t have the time for a dog that needs constant walking and feeding and opt for something a little more manageable. If you require such a pet, then look for an exotic pets shop in Bristol who will satisfy your curiosity and offer you a great selection of reptiles, lizards, snakes, spiders and many more. There are a number of reasons for having a reptile as a pet.
- They are a lot less messy that your typical dog or cat. You can keep them confined in their suitable tank or vivarium and any mess that they make can be easily contained. A quick clean out and their habitat is clean again.
- A dog has to be fed every day, sometimes twice a day and his costs money and your time. Some reptiles only have to be fed once or twice a month. If you get a herbivore, then a piece of lettuce and you’re done. It’s much easier.
- If you get a hamster or a fish, it’s very likely that it will die soon and then you have an upset kid. Reptiles live for much longer and some turtles will end up outlasting even you.
