(Stamford, CT) – The American Pet Products Association (APPA) announced today the latest in ownership data and products for reptiles ahead of Reptile Awareness Day set to take place October 21, 2020. This observance encourages reptile owners to share their passion for their pets and serves to educate others on responsible reptile care.
According to the 2019-2020 APPA National Pet Owners Survey, there are 4.5 million reptile owning households in the U.S. and millennials account for the majority of reptile owners at 35 percent followed by Gen-X at 31 percent. The Survey also reveals the popularity of specific reptiles owned; 47 percent are turtles; 26 percent are lizards and 18 percent are snakes. Below is a round-up of innovative products manufactured by APPA members for current and prospective reptile owners that promote responsible care.
|Without a proper hide and sleeping area, reptiles can easily develop stress that may affect their well-being and appetite. The Exo Terra Wet Log by Exo Terra offers reptiles, amphibians or invertebrates a secure place to hide and sleep, while the moist microclimate will support thermo-regulation, hydration, and aid the natural shedding process of reptiles.
The Wet Log's water reservoir should be filled with water at all times to assure that the microclimate retains optimal temperature and humidity levels for your animals.
