Yesterday dad and I cleaned out Georgy’s cage. Mum was able to take this fleeting AND movement picture of Georgy coming into her newly designed home.
Cleaning a lizard’s cage takes time. This is how we do it:
- Move your lizard into a box, big enough for her to move about in. Make sure she can breathe!
- Move EVERYTHING out from their cage and move ALL the old substrate out.
- Put your specific substrate that the pet shop guy recommended in a bucket. Use the amount said guy recommended.
- Pour two 1.5 litre bottle’s worth of water into the bucket and wait 45 minutes for the substrate to dissolve. (This might be a good time to watch telly!)
- Use your (or a neighbour’s) trowel to move the substrate into the cage all over the bottom of it. Flatten it out with said trowel
- Pour some chips (no, not the potato chips, wood chips!) over the substrate. Use trowel again to flatten wood chips.
- Put EVERYTHING back into the cage. Make sure you supply a fresh amount of water for the lizard’s water bowl. Now you can put your lizard back into the cage.
- For extra fun, put everything back differently for your lizard to explore all over again!
