It is nice to mix the diet and add some bugs and spiders. You have to take care of water and temperature.

First of all, you have to consider the sizes of a frog to follow space requirements. The second point is 'alive' food. Frogs love it much! You can feed it with crickets or worms. You will also have to place a tank in a suitable location, kept out of direct sunlight, smoke, and other fumes. You will have to cover the bottom of a tank with gravel stones or anything your frog likes. Note that you will also have to follow light and temperature requirements. Enough water is one of the main rules you have to keep in mind. By the way, if you choose a frog pet, you have to minimize handling.

Snakes

Boomslang Snake, Corn Snake, and White Snake are very popular today. Nevertheless, these creatures require much care, time and attention. Th list of things you will need before buying a snake is the following: vivarium, water bowl, substrate, something for the snake to climb, heat mat for the half of the vivarium, light, thermometer, hydrometer and two hides.If you are not scared by the list above and still dream about having a snake, keep in mind the following rules.

First of all, your snake needs fresh water, so do not forget to change it regularly. Maintain the vivarium clean cleaning it with hot water at least once a month. You will have to create a feeding place outside the vivarium. By the way, shakes prefer 'alive' food, so make sure you are ready to provide it.

Turtles

Most people believe turtles are easy to care for. It is true that turtles are wonderful pets, but they require much time and money. You will need at least a 40-gallon tank to make your pet feel happy. You will need a UVB light bulb as well.You will have to monitor the temperatures and clean a tank at least once a week. A turtle needs fresh water, so you will need to change it every day. You will have to feed your turtle depending on its age. Fruits and vegetables are good for your pet.

Spiders

Cobalt Blue Tarantula

This beautiful spider is not recommended for the beginners. It is very fast, shy and should not be handled. The terrarium has to be 20 – 25cm deep, so you spider can feel safe and comfortable. The important thing you have to pay attention to is a humidity level. It has to be around 60- 70%. You can achieve it by spraying spider's area once a week. The diet of a Cobalt Blue Tarantula consists of crickets, roaches, mealworms, and superworms. Anyways, if you are a beginner, this spider is not the best choice.

Fashionable Manicure

23MAR 2023

Animalistic print has recently become more and more popular. Along with the zebra, tiger and leopard, the effect of a reptile on the nails began to be used in manicure. It can be obtained in various ways, including using glitter in bulk.

The design of the reptile on the nails involves placing a pattern resembling scales on the plates. It is performed by forming small zones – scales, separated by broken lines that change their width, expanding at the corners. Such scales, depending on the size of the nail, can have a size from 3-4 mm to 5.

Traditionally, such a manicure is performed in a blue–green colour scheme, but other options are also possible. To draw the scales, gold, silver, green, blue, and black colours are usually used. Usually, an ombre is used as a background, but monochrome backgrounds are also possible.
