Impact on Reptile Keep
Reptile Keep does not offer any physical products, as such the current situation with Covid-19 has had minimal impact on us and how we operate. It has delayed our website release, this was due to the design company we use having to adapt and change how they work. We have also experienced a delay in the content we publish, some sections of our website are still pending release but we hope to have them published within the next couple of months.
Whilst the country is easing out of lockdown it is important to remember that Covid-19 is still a public health risk. As such, you should still take steps to protect yourself and your family.

Looking after your reptiles
The main challenges reptile keepers have faced due to Covid-19 is a delay in products reaching them. This situation has improved drastically with lockdown easing, however, the situation remains uncertain and lockdown could be imposed again either on a local or national level. You shouldn’t panic buy, but it doesn’t hurt to stock up on items critical to care, for example, making sure you have a spare heat source should your current one fail.
Covid-19 has hit local businesses the hardest, where possible you should support local businesses including small independent pet shops.
Can’t shop local?
There’s a wealth of online shops providing a full range of reptile keeping items, including live and frozen food. We frequently use Swell Reptiles.
