Well, here's what I do. I have a solid routine. I wake up before work and make sure everyone has water, turn on the lights and give all the veggie eaters their food, which I keep prepared in the fridge so I can just grab what I need and that's all. I go to work at 7:30 and usually get home around 5-5:30. The first thing I do is check to make sure everyone has eaten their veggies then I fed all the other herps their crickets and mealworms. I take out the rodents to be thawed and I double-check the water and make sure everyone has calcium in their dishes. This usually takes about 1/2 an hour. Then I feed everyone their rodents. Once a week we clean and disenfect every cage(usually Sunday). This takes about4-6 hours, but it's only once a week. That frees up the rest of my day, which is actually a lot of time. Hope this helps, it all comes down to doing everything on a regular schedule.
