Befriending Your Pet Reptile

Are you considering adopting a reptile? It may take time for your new pet to get used to you. Reptiles aren't as personable as dogs and cats, but they do have their own ways of showing affection. They may approach you when called, while others will happily hang out on you as you are relaxing. Some will even change color a bit to communicate.

It's important to handle your reptile gently and frequently in order to get him used to you. Talk to your pet in a soothing tone, and let him get used to your scent and the sound of your voice. Treats aren't very helpful with snakes, but for any other type of animal they will also help with bonding. Try to do this every day, for at least 10-15 minutes.
