Nowadays, more and more people are turning to exotic animals in search of a unique pet that they can call their own. With a few of the most popular being reptiles, notably bearded dragons, geckos and even iguanas, it’s important to understand the needs of each species and care for them properly. While vivariums are amongst the most popular homes for a fair few exotic pets, bedding can often vary between species, however, artificial grass can provide a suitable alternative. Below we have compiled a few examples of exotic pets that fake lawns would be acceptable for.
Bearded dragons are quite common as pets nowadays as they are fairly easy to care for. For housing, the options are endless; some may want to opt for a custom wood cabinet while others will choose something a little more cost-effective i.e. a specially designed vivarium. As for bedding, there are many options including outdoor carpet, sand and of course, artificial grass.
Artificial grass is ideal for bearded dragon enclosures as it is soft and durable as well as being easy to clean and maintain. It’s also very cheap to purchase and you can invest in a few strips to keep you going throughout the month as it will need to be regularly changed. In addition, it doesn’t take too long to dry so you can clean your tank quickly and efficiently.
Another pet that artificial grass is ideal for is an iguana; these exotic pets require a large tank as they can grow up to 6 feet in length so they need plenty of space to explore. When choosing the bedding, you should avoid bark and sand as, if ingested, they can cause obstruction. Artificial grass is an excellent choice for these pets as it provides them with a more natural-looking environment. While newspaper is a good alternative, fake grass is easier to maintain and clean to avoid the tank developing an unpleasant odour. In addition, you won’t have to change the bedding as often as newspaper either so it’s much more time-efficient.
Our final exotic pet is the beloved tree frog; another suitable candidate for artificial grass! Like the iguana, using artificial grass can help to provide a more natural-looking environment for your pet and it’s unlikely that the grass will act as an irritant. In addition, as mentioned, it is easy to clean and won’t have to be replaced as often as newspaper.
