That's nice (and welcome to the Forum!!). I like the second story. Have you seen the baby go up the ramp? What are you growing in the tray?


That's funny...I could see the picture when I responded, but now I can't see it anymore. Lucky for us Marty made two posts the same, so I just merged them. The picture still shows up in the second one.

yes its a hide under there. i put a paint tray in there with some jungle mix stuff so he can go in easy and dig down some if he wants to.

Nice Job! I've always liked two layered enclosures however you should definitely put up some kind of railing to prevent him from falling off the left side of the ramp. He could fall and get seriously hurt or worse..Aside from that though It looks great and im sure he'll love it

One idea for the ramp is indoor/outdoor carpet. Or that fake grass.
I use thin pieces of wood used, every 1/2 inch or so (lath, popsicle sticks), sort of like a ladder. I also find that placing anti skid strips between the wood pieces also provides traction and helps trim toenails.
http://www.findtape.com/product170/ISC-Non-Skid-Anti-Slip-Tape.aspx I found this at ACE hardware, purchase by the foot.

Does the reptile bark hold enough moisture? perhaps mixing with coir?

you could also plop a spider plant in the middle of the lower level, right in its pot, for interest.

A few tweaks, but you have done a really nice job!
