Scales, tails and supplies to get you started

Below are the basics to get through your first few days smoothly. It’s important to set up your pet’s habitat BEFORE you bring them home but if you need to pick up a few supplies, Petco is here for you!

Note: We always recommend first purchasing a reptile starter kit. This will provide the basic elements to create a safe new home for your small animal. Most include a terrarium with a top, food and water dishes, humidity gauge, thermometer, substrate and décor. Petco carries a variety of kits, including tropical, desert and species-specific.

Ball Python & Corn Snake

Note: We recommend a snake kit to provide the base elements of your habitat.
