A Few Reptiles That Don't Eat Meat

Reptiles can be a big turnoff for some people because they are carnivores. That means feeding your pet insects and even mice. If you want to bring home a reptile, but don’t want to feed it other animals, choose one that doesn’t eat meat.

 

Iguanas are the most popular vegetarian reptile. They are completely content eating leafy greens and fruit. However, they can get huge. If you bring home one of these lizards, plan on him growing up to be six feet in length!

 

A tortoise may be a good option too. They eat leafy greens, and when they get big enough, they can actually scavenge in your backyard. Just be careful what kind of tortoise you bring home. Some can live to be 100 years old!

Warmer weather means getting to spend more time outdoors, but it also means it’s easier than ever to overheat. This can be especially dangerous for a dog. Skip the emergency trip to the vet and use a cooling pad instead.

 

What is a cooling pad? Cooling pads are made just for dogs. They contain a gel that can stay cooler than the air temperature for hours at a time. All you have to do is put the pad down for your pooch and he’ll lay on it when it starts to get warm.

 

Many cooling pads don’t need to be frozen or refrigerated, but some do. Make sure you look at the directions on the packaging very carefully. Even ones that don’t have to be frozen can be placed in the freezer to return them to their original state more quickly.
