Reptiles and Bass Guitar
Hi, everyone!
So, I currently live with my parents, and I have some reptiles in my room (specifically, a pair of emerald tree skinks, a gargoyle gecko, a ball python, and a Kenyan sand boa). I'd like to start playing bass again, as I used to do so a couple years ago before falling out of practice. I would do so in the same room the reptiles are in. Would this be harmful to them, either physically or mentally? It's not very loud; it's a similar volume to someone speaking slightly louder than normal.

Reptiles can be very sensitive to vibration, but it really varies from individual to individual based on how prone to stress the individual animal is. I know reptiles can be bothered by a TV, so it's possible they could be bothered by bass guitar, although if it's not very loud I'm sure that would help.

Low frequency vibrations can easily travel all through the house even at low volume, so no matter which room you are in, they would probably feel it.

A suggestion you might consider is that you could use headphones or earphones instead of playing through an amp. Your parents might appreciate the consideration also.

I would try it and see how the animals react, if the exhibit any signs of stress
