Welcome to the internet's most accurate collection of reptile care guides.

Welcome to ReptiFiles! I’m glad you found your way here. My name is Mariah Healey, professional reptile husbandry researcher and consultant.

It’s hard (and confusing!) to sift through all of the care sheets, websites, scientific papers, climate data, forums, etc. to get the information you need to know how to care for a pet reptile. That’s why I’ve done the work for you — and put it here for the world to use.

When you read a ReptiFiles® care manual, you can rest assured knowing that this is information that you can trust. Everything here is factual, evidence-based, and 100% free of charge because I’m here to help you provide the very best care for your pet reptile.
