Auswahl der Tiere im Terrarium

Pets should be examined carefully before purchase in order to keep the risk of disease down to an absolute minimum. The following points should be kept in mind:

  • Checking the mouth: The mouth should be closed and free of foam or slimy films.
  • Checking the eyes: Shedding should be complete, the eyes should not be too deep in the sockets.
  • Checking the skin: Check for wounds, boils and other irregularities.
  • Checking the feet: Check the toes and feet of lizards for unshed skin which can cause constrictions.
  • Checking the shell of a turtle: Only very young turtles should have soft shells.
  • Checking nutritional condition: The skin should not have too many folds and the ribs or vertebrae should not be too prominent.
  • Checking a spider: It should have all 8 legs. Whitish, fungus-like areas on the body are suspicious, whereas a “bald patch” on the abdomen presents no problem.
