A habitat is a place where an animal gets everything that they need to survive. Every animal is different, but despite these differences most animals need some of the same things. Every animal needs food, water, shelter and a safe place.

Your home is your habitat and it might also be the habitat of a family pet or other animal. Different animals have different needs, which means that they each live and thrive in different kinds of habitats. It is important that if you have a pet, or if you are considering getting a new pet, you do plenty of research so that you know how to set up a comfortable and safe habitat.

 Read more for tips on meeting your pets’ needs, including choosing the right food, shelter and activities for different kids of pets.
