Snakes are an exotic reptile that, depending on species, will generally live anywhere from 10 to 30 years in captivity with the correct care. Snakes have specialised environmental needs such as a large vivarium and the correct temperature, humidity and UV lighting. Snakes are carnivorous reptiles meaning they only eat meat; a favourite food of snakes is small rodents such as rats.
Bearded dragons originate from Australia and are one of the most popular pet lizard species in the UK. As bearded dragons are semi-arboreal it’s important that their enclosure has plenty of rocks and branches for them to climb up on to and rest. Like with all lizard species they require the correct environment, with a vivarium, the correct humidity/temperature and UV lighting. With the correct care in captivity bearded dragons can live anywhere between 10 to 15 years.
