Choosing the habitat
Your pet’s habitat and its location are very important because it is where your animal will spend the majority of its time. You therefore need to choose a cage suitable for the species in question. The cage’s volume and surface area must of a sufficient size for your pet. The cage must not be a place where he will be disturbed.
Set up the cage in the following type of environment:
- Temperate: not too hot nor too cold
- Accessible to natural light to avoid deficiencies
- Protected from drafts
- Sheltered from full sunlight
Always in the interests of the animal: do not place his cage directly on the ground but rather on at table height, on a stable stand for example. This way he will avoid being covered in dust and will feel reassured. Your pet needs to be in a quiet, calm area in the household.
