    Items that'll make all your scaly friends happy.

    We hope you love the products we recommend! All of them were independently selected by our editors. Just so you know, BuzzFeed collects a share of sales and/or other compensation from the links on this page. Oh, and FYI — prices are accurate and items in stock as of time of publication.

    1. A suspended reptile hammock, so your geckos, bearded dragons, and ball pythons have a place to rest, lounge, and feel more secure. Because this hammock comes with attachable suction cups, you won't have to worry about it slipping or sliding off of the tank walls, whether they are made of glass, plastic, or acrylic.

    Promising review: "I bought one and it's perfect for my crested geckos, and we see them on it all the time over the last year. So, I had to buy another one for some of my other crested geckos, or our snakes, haven't decided yet. Reptiles love hammocks. This one is easy to clean and holds up well."  —Snakemom

    Price: $5.99+ (available in sizes S—Giant) 

    2. An above-tank basking platform for turtles to have a place to stay warm and stretch out their legs. As this platform sits at the top of the tank, now you will only have to fill it halfway. Now, Raphael and Donatello will have more room to swim throughout the entire tank.

    Promising review: "My 2-year-old red slider loves his new basking platform. He was getting too heavy for the floating one, and I wasn't feeling handy enough to create my own. It took him a few days to go on the platform, so don't worry. He also utilizes the underwater platform quite a bit."  —Cooknteach

    Price: $36.33 (originally $58.99)

    3. A jar full of turtle and amphibian food if Miss Shelly is getting bored with the food you're currently giving her, and you want something new and nutritious — it contains calcium and vitamin C — to change things up. Because this food comes in easy-to-serve sticks, now you'll have a little more bonding time with your pet each time you feed them.

    Promising review: "I had been looking for this tub of food, and no one had it in town. Not only was this cheaper, but it is a great buy! He is happy, so I am happy! A new place to buy my pet foods. Came quicker than I expected. Great prices!"  —Splashy

    Price: $2.59+ (originally $6.99+; available in five jar and bucket sizes) 

    4. A ceramic heat emitter, because just like we need some sunshine, our amphibian and reptile friends also need to have a source of heat to keep them healthy. Thankfully, this heat emitter also prioritizes safety — the light it generates isn't blinding, so little eyes stay safe and undamaged.

    Promising review: "In my area, CHE bulbs are very expensive. I am thrilled to have an option from Chewy for my Saharan sand boa and my ball python. It is safe on their eyes — used with a lamp fixture on a thermostat — and the first one has lasted well."  —Jeni

    Price: $15.14+ (originally $27.99+, available in two-watt sizes) 

    5. A bag of natural cypress mulch reptile bedding that won't become plagued with yucky odors after some time. Because this bedding stays free of mold, you won't have to toss it and switch to another brand.

    Promising review: "Love it! My Ball python, Winnie, loves this stuff, and I didn't think I'd find it online, but Chewy came to the rescue! Definitely going to be subscribing to get it regularly. It holds humidity well, and it's a great size so that he doesn't ingest it, and it's light enough for digging but heavy enough that it's not dust. Never molds, the only thing is once it dries out it won't hold humidity again, but it's time to clean the enclosure at that point anyway!"  —Hanna

    Price: $15.99 (originally $29.99)

    6. A reptile superfoods supplement complete with minerals, trace nutrients, vitamin C, and calcium, so each member of your scaly squad stays happy and healthy. As this supplement also has an expiration date, now you'll know when it's time to toss it.

    Promising review: "Repashy is the only go-to for supplements. I use this for all of my reptiles as a part of their complete diet. And now that they have started using expiration dates, there is no more guesswork in sorting expired supplements."  —Bhenderson

    Price: $9.98 (originally $9.99)

    7. A reptile water dish you can use for drinking water or serving insects. Because it is easy to clean and has a nonporous surface to prevent the growth of harmful bacteria, now you'll have a dish you can use for life.

    Promising review: "I couldn’t believe the deal I got on this! It’s perfect for my pied ball python. It’s of great quality and heavy duty. I paid half the price through Chewy than any pet store I shop at."  —pigs

    Price: $6.99+ (available in sizes S—XL)

    8. A bag of 5-pound natural aquarium gravel if you want a product that promotes beneficial microbes without clouding the tank water in the process. And while this gravel comes in three colors, rest assured that all pebbles are covered in a 100 percent acrylic clear coating that is nontoxic.

    Promising review: "Nice product! I didn't have any problems with it clouding my water, but I rinsed it very well and filled my tank slowly. It paired very well with the sand I purchased and has a natural look." —Katec

    Price: $4.99 (available in three colors)

    9. A clarity and odor control moss ball to keep all of your turtle tanks clean and odor-free. Because this ball does a lot of cleaning for you, your tank filter won't have to work so hard.

    Promising review: "Controls odors so well, and makes the tank water so much cleaner! Makes filters and water last so much longer too!"  —Kaelin

    Price: $2.34 (originally $3.04)

    10. An abutilon silk plant, so your little Lizzie's terrarium will look like a tropical paradise. And if you have a shy little frog or newt on your hands, trust that this silk plant will provide the perfect hiding place for them to feel safe and secure.

    Promising review: "My crested gecko loves sleeping and hiding in this pretty plant. Very happy w my purchase."  —Karter

    Price: $7.64+ (originally $8.99; available in sizes S—L)

    11. A bag of fruit mix reptile food to ensure your reptile's diet is rich in vitamins and essential nutrients. Because this food doesn't need to be refrigerated, it's easy to serve each time your reptile gets the munchies.

    Promising review: "I bought this for my red foot tortoise. Fruit goes bad quickly, so it's nice to have this when I'm in a pinch and can't get to the store. She goes nuts for it too! It smells good and isn't messy. So convenient too — just add water, and it's good to go!" Megan

    Price: $12.99 (originally $15.99) 

    12. A floating turtle pier platform, so your turtles, newts, and salamanders can bask to their heart's content. Since this platform has a built-in ramp, your pets can easily return back into the water once they are finished getting nice and toasty.

    Chewy / Aliceinchains, Chewy

    Promising review: "My turtle is 17 years old, so I have had a lot of different docks over the years. I bought this one a few months back and I couldn't be happier. Gus, my red ear slider, absolutely loves it. He is a pretty big turtle, and it holds up great. I strongly recommend investing in this. Just make sure you have a large tank because it takes up a lot of room." —Jenschell2010

    Price: $15+ (originally $34.99; available in two sizes)

    13. A cave for reptiles that comes in three sizes, so your geckos have a place to hide, destress, and sleep. As this cave is very stable, it won't tip over if your lizard decides to climb on top of it.

    Promising review: "My leopard gecko has a large (though, a medium would probably work fine), and he spends most of his time inside of it, whether he’s shedding or not. He has lots of options for hiding, but he likes the cave best! I keep it partially on the warm, and partially on the cool so that he doesn’t get too hot or too cold."  —Trisha 

    Price: $18.99+ (available in three sizes) 

    14. A wooden tortoise house to give your turtle a place of its own, whether it's indoors or outside. Since this tortoise house expands, it will fit shelled sweeties of all sizes.

    Promising review: "It was easy to put together, and there is a lot of room for my tortoise. It gives him a great place to hide. We put linoleum in the bottom for easy cleanup, and we don't have to worry about the wood getting wet."  —Christie

    Price: $149.99

    15. A pack of terrarium filter replacement cartridges — which is powered by ultra-activated carbon — so stinky odors is history. Because these filters also keep water from becoming discolored, also gone are the days of cloudy tank water.

    Promising review: "I use these filters all the time. I have a large yellow belly slider turtle, and, as you know, turtles are very dirty. I have two of these large units in his tank, and these filters keep it real clean. Easy to put new filters in and just throw away the stinky ones. Worth the money."  —halloweenkitten

    Price: $3.59+ (originally $6.99+, available in two counts and two sizes)
