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

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.

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.
