Reptiles and amphibian care centers on creating a proper environment and feeding the proper diet. When these two issues are dealt with, few medical issues arise. In general, the proper environment includes the proper containment, lighting, substrate and temperature/humidity. The proper diet is balanced, of the right color and consistency and acceptable to the pet. Once these basics are handled then more advanced care for reproduction and longevity can be considered.
