All recommended terrarium-sizes come from the Swedish agriculture authority (Jordbruksverket in Swedish). Many countries around the world, US for example, don’t have any regulations from authorities about minimal living space for reptiles.

Instead, it’s breeders and organizations that set the standard. That’s not bad at all but since there are exact measurements in Sweden, and Sweden is regarded to be a country with high standards on animal welfare, I thought it would be a good idea to spread the knowledge from Sweden to the reptile community around the world.
That’s the primary reason why this site exists.

But terrarium-sizes isn’t all. The animals must be cared for in a good manner. That’s why we also give you some links to sites that we recommend for more information.
