Pets at Home is holding reptile workshops in store to showcase a variety of different creatures to curious customers.

On Saturday 9th November the store teams will allow customers to meet an array of reptiles including snakes, lizards, geckos and many more.

Customers can choose to either just take a peek or get fully involved with feeding and holding some of the reptiles.

The workshops are a great way to learn about how to care for these types of animals. Anyone who is considering a reptile as a pet is encouraged to visit the store to talk to Pets at Home’s speciallytrained
reptile advisors and pick up some free information on how to care for them responsibly.

Pets at Home spokesperson, said: “A reptile workshop is a great opportunity to showcase our reptile expertise and also provide customers with the chance to learn a bit more about keeping and looking
after these more unusual pets.”

Mark Smith, pet and reptile operations manager at Pets at Home, added: “Reptiles need specialist care so it’s important that anyone interested in keeping a reptile as a pet seeks expert advice.

“Keeping reptiles, amphibians and invertebrates is usually problem-free, as long as their environment and the temperature of their surroundings is correct for them and their food is appropriate and supplemented correctly.

“We stock a wide range of reptile food, as well as special homes called vivariums and accessories, to ensure that these kinds of animals get the best possible start when they get to their new homes.”
