Virides Reptile Creative Innovations

Virides Reptile have created several new and innovative products to the reptile industry. One of their earliest projects is one you may recognize from earlier articles on Reptile Apartment. ProProps came about through the collaboration of Dr. Shane Simpson The Reptile Doctor and Scott Owen who is one of the founding team members of Virides Reptile. The partnership of Dr. Simpson and Virides Reptile revolutionized herpetological veterinary practice around the world.

Before Virides Reptile, veterinarians often used metal devices to open a patient’s mouth for examination. Virides Reptile working with Dr. Simpson designed and manufactured the safest oral examination tool available for reptiles today. The previously available metal products involved more risk during examinations. These metal props also have the disadvantage of being opaque.

ProProps are designed from a clear material and designed with the internal mouth structure of the reptile used to design a more comfortable fit. Now you can examine your reptile’s mouth in relative ease while keeping both the keeper and the kept safe.

Sliding Glass Finger Grips

Ground in grooves on glass result in cut finger tips, cupboard pulls are not clear, and cut holes can promote cracking and aren’t favourable with dangerous animals.
