Turtle Tub: A Top Notch Enclosure Design That Makes Your Pet Happy, Doesn’t Look Like an Eyesore to Your Living Room, Easy to Clean and Maintain.
The problem with reptile enclosures these days is that that they are labor intensive for cleaning, and they are typically not as functional as you would like.
Lizards like turtles have their own set of enclosure problems. Typically a lizard does not need that much water, however, having water to swim in may be a big benefit, especially if skin hydration is needed. Additionally, lizards are messy and a simple water filtration unit isn’t going to cut it. Water changes are going to be needed and frequently.
The problem that a lizard style cage has is that the bottom of the cage looks like a bed pan. Some pet owners even design their reptile enclosures around make shift shower stalls to make the clean up easier.
What is missing in most enclosures is a pool, or nesting area that is easy to remove and clean. The clean up is really the main issue. Second to the whole pool concept is whether it is functional and finally if it looks good, or looks like it fits.
The Reptile Tub is the answer to messy cages, and the solution to the nesting problem that large floor based tubs seek to solve.
For the reptile enclosure, the Reptile Tub is pool answer that many pet owners have been waiting for. Instead of using a clumsy plastic dish, or heavy stone ware container, the reptile tub is large enough for pets to swim in, boasting 3 gallon capacity with the largest, and small enough to remove and clean for those frequent water changes. Lets face it, lizards are not clean, the defecate everywhere. So even if you had a pool you will be changing the water constantly. This pool is designed for those clean up times.
One of the biggest complaints with cage cleaning is where to put the pet. Typically the pet has to be removed so the cage can be cleaned. And usually the cage is being cleaned because water is all over the bottom of it. The up side to the pool is that the pool can be emptied, while the pet stays in the cage or reptile enclosure. Instead of draining the whole tank and the critters too.
Breeders of reptiles may have issues of where to put the eggs. With the Reptile Tub the pool can be converted to a nesting area. Or better yet, one tub is swimming pool, while the other tub is a nesting pool.
Again this is ideal, because the nesting area can be remove (the eggs examined if need be)and monitored. The nesting area can be placed in another environment, or just plain put back, especially after a cage cleaning. This is especially handy for full cage clean ups, and does not necessitate that a nesting spot be remade, or eggs placed back into position. With this system the eggs are undisturbed.
The pool can also be flipped over to work as a pool-island. This is handy with critters who like it dry, but just need a little hydration. The outside of the tub can be surrounded with sand or gravel, while the tub itself can be filled with water. The center section then works as a flat spot for warming, while parts of the lizard are immersed in the water.
-The pools are UV stable, so there are no issues with degradation due to heat lamps.
- These pools are also made in the Midwestern United States so there is no issue of lead poisioning with plastic paints or any questionable material content in the plastic structure. They are cleanser safe, and are almost impervious to the most caustic cleaners known to mankind.
