The most common reptiles and amphibians in the pet trade

The most common reptiles and amphibians in the pet trade
In this blog, we will show some of the most common pet reptiles available in the hobby today. With their typically docile attitude and well known for being easy to handle, these are great recommendations. While these are mostly calmer reptiles, we have added some of the more advanced species whether it be attitude or them having specific husbandry needs, that also are good options for keepers looking for something different than the norm (these will be labeled as advanced or highly advanced).
While there are multiple species that could be added to this list, this is a simple list for beginners or keepers who are in search of a new reptile to add to their collection. We have listed them below with links to approved Bio Dude care sheets, Bio Dude Bioactive kits and videos if they are available.
