I'll explain to you why we point out on some characteristics of reptiles in captivity.
For example, the iguanas living in the wild, mostly in trees. Those. they rarely go down. And they have at their disposal a huge space.
If we compare with the terrarium. In the terrarium little space (in any terrarium). Therefore iguana can eat ground out of boredom. Therefore, we are trying to warn the owners of iguanas.
Also in the wild there is a natural selection. And in home we usually have 1-2 iguanas. And we can not allow natural selection at home. It will be very sad to lose a single pet.
With regard to the terrarium. This is my personal observation that a high terrarium creates a good mood for the iguanas. If the terrarium resembles a "a piece of" wildlife - iguana more happy. And if the animal is happy - it boosts the immune system.
In your terrarium has a snag. But outwardly (in my opinion) is not enough comfort. You can take my advice or not to use. But you can be sure that I write with only one purpose - to help improve the environment for your child.
Because now he's sick. And I thought that maybe more "pleasing to his eyes," the environment will contribute to raising its immunity. I'm just going to show you some terrariums. For comparison.
Is it bad that I advise you to do more green in your terrarium?
You can see a recent example, and talk with the owner Lucy. He will be able to share his opinion - the impact of the terrarium on his girl. http://reptile-parrots.com/forums/sh...-s-new-habitat
