ADVOCATE

Not only should you keep your Dogs or Cats in check, but you should also take into account what kind of Reptile you’re bringing in. Snakes and Lizards big and small have their pros and cons. Snakes obviously prefer isolation; however, when given the opportunity to escape, they may end up eating one of your furry pals while you’re away. Lizards, such as Monitor Lizards and Iguanas, are the middle ground – they may be large enough to defend themselves against other animals in the house should things go wrong, but they may be small enough to get eaten by the family Cat. If you’re keen on having them meet and interact as one big happy family no matter what, it’s best to have the Reptile and other animals to socialize behind barriers. This not only keeps everyone safe, but is also a great way to observe their reactions. This setup creates a controllable environment in case things go south so that it’s easier to prevent accidents.
