Reptiles, Need Exercise Too...

By: Dr. Margaret Wissman

Take your snake for a swim. Take your lizard for a walk. Let that tortoise stretch its legs. It does a cold-blooded body good.

Perhaps your pet green iguana won't catch a Frisbee and you can't go jogging with your pet turtle, but exercise is very important for some pet reptiles. While the average pet snake, lizard, tortoise, turtle or frog gets enough exercise just walking around its cage, some reptiles benefit greatly from additional exercise.

i used to take my snake to the park when the weather was warmer. :-) She loved crawling around and exploring trees. I also let her have free range of the living room when I'm home. She usually just makes a beeline to behind the sofa. I never thought about letting them swim. Maybe I'll buy a kiddie pool now!
