Who to start in addition to cat dog?
You like exotic Pets? But if you have an Allergy to wool, and very desirable pet – what to do? There is a solution to this problem is to get a lizard! Yes it is a lizard. Cineasia skink. This fascinating creature seems strong, slightly slow, very reasonable. Skink finds out their owners (especially those who feed him), omnivorous, requires little maintenance – easy to maintain. No smell, no wool, he won’t bite (if manual and not in the wild). If you have children – they are unlikely to hurt this lizard, it seems strong enough to break her. And she has this adorable blue tongue.
Keep the skink just. Need a terrarium (you can use a plastic toy box) in it are doing good ventilation of the installed UV-lamp (10 Repligo easy to buy in pet stores), put the drinker with a clean, pooled water and feeder. Note that the skink has it ALL. Loves baby puree, mixed with something tasty. But since he could easily get used to the sweets, and refuse to eat terribly useful porridge with vegetables, you have to fool him. For example: take the cereal, mix it with chopped heart and add a raw egg, put the same vegetables, fruits. It is breeders call “mash”. Sly lizard will be forced to pop that will, not choosing tasty pieces. Also a trick with baby meat puree, dobavljaca all sorts of useful but, alas, not always such tasty things. As the lizard sheds it to be afraid that suddenly it got leather pieces. Everything is fine. Provided there is sufficient humidity. Spray your favorite spray and keep well shed fingers and the tip of the tail. If the skin will not peel off, it will pull a toes or tail, and these parts tell just wither away and fall off.
Buy skink go to the breeders-keepers. Not so much, and is easy to find on the web. Basically all know each other. They will sell you a healthy animal, will explain in detail about the conditions of detention, to advise in the future. In pet stores and in “bird markets” buying animals is not highly recommend. Often they sell patients, adults Skinks, the so-called “przyrodnikow”. They are wild, and you will spend a lot of time on the domestication and treatment of the animal.
In any case, when you buy please note that the animal should not have any discharge anywhere. Under the tail all clean, around the nose, eyes. Mouth light pink. The lizard should be moderately active, not sluggish. The skin may be moulting, but without wounds and ulcers. If you took the animal on a “pet market”, then immediately take it to the vet. Checking for parasites is required. Otherwise the animal may simply die.
