If you love reptiles, having one as a pet is great. But there is no denying that setting up their habitat is a confusing and complicated process.
There is the lighting, humidity and temperature to think about, as well as whether they need places to climb on or hide in. Another big decision is their substrate which sits at the bottom of the tank.
You’d be forgiven for thinking anything will do, but actually, every animal has particular needs. It relates to how they spend their time, the conditions of the vivarium and how safe the substrate is to use with them in the tank.
These are the best reptile substrates on the market for every subtype.
