Hi.Can you give some pics so we can advise you on care and species?

Snakes don't need UVA/B so that'd be fine to keep if you can get the right set up sorted, but it really depends which species you're able to get hold of over there, if you know the species names I can give you a bit more info on the requirements for them.

I know there are at least a few venomous species of snakes in Syria locally and I would not recommend keeping one as a pet for your first snake but if you know of any none-venomous species around there that'd be a good starting point

I'm no help with turtles though :blush:

If you have an outdoor pond for a turtle as a permanent home that would be ok as the sunlight would be better.
