is the plastic tough enough (ie-not brittle) to stand up to having holes drilled in it? If so, this looks ideal for hatchlings. Thanks for sharing (whether it's in the wrong section or not)

Be careful of these they have the gap around the top which makes it hard to keep temps up and the plastic (so I have heard) warps really easy.

at £40 a pop I cant see how this is cheaper, a hand built rack would be in the same price range and would be better quality.

its the rubs that go into the rack that cost (unless you have a nearby ikea)

The problem with these is the gap at the top of the draw. Leos will find a way out and they will excape. I have looked into it previously. It's much better to make you own.
