Do you have a reptile companion in your life? If you do get ready to celebrate because today, October 21st, is Reptile Awareness day! Reptile Awareness Day was created as “a chance to educate others who may not know about these amazing creatures called reptiles, and the habitat loss and threat of extinction that faces so many reptile species.” Reptiles have adapted over time to an amazing range of habitats and lifestyles, everywhere from underground to the tops of mountains.
As a reptile guardian, you get to learn about everything from adaptation, behavior and the environment, to nutrition and camouflage. Learning about the natural history and proper captive care of these animals just might change your world outlook and get you thinking more about the environment as a whole.
