When keeping a pet reptile, it's especially important to consider food and nutrition. The dietary requirements of different species also differ.
Reptiles' feeding behaviour and digestion are affected by the temperature of their environment. Compared to mammals and other "warm-blooded" animals, reptiles have a lower metabolism, so they feed less frequently. Reptiles' feeding behaviour can be influenced by other factors besides humidity levels, light, food types, and proximity to other animals. Among turtles and some plant-eating lizards, the colour of their food influences their acceptance of it, with red and yellow being their preferred hues. A reptile may become accustomed to eating certain foods and refuse to eat anything else. Young reptiles may be less likely to suffer from this problem if they are fed a variety of foods each time they are fed.
