Handling and socializing with your reptile pet is crucial for their health and happiness. It's important to understand their species-specific needs for proper care. Initial socialization can be achieved by spending time near their enclosure and feeding them, thereby building positive associations. Handling must be done gently and with clean hands to prevent bacterial infections. Starting early, demonstrating patience, using positive reinforcement, and avoiding handling during shedding or stress periods are best practices for a well-adjusted reptile pet.
