Welcome to Terrarium Quest!

We’re a team of enthusiastic reptile lovers and are here to help you give your pets the best life possible!

A 2018 study shows that 75% of pet reptiles and amphibians die in the first year after new owners brought them home. We want this number to change.

Our mission is to provide you with experienced and research-based content. And to help you create a natural and comfortable environment for your reptiles.

Join us in our quest to build the ultimate vivarium! And let’s work together so your pets feel happy and healthy in their home.
