    Afternoon all, i've read countless threads online that each say different things, ive got reptile carpet at the moment but would rather get lino as it's easier to manage. What thickness should the lino be and is there anything in particular i need to look for? It's to go in some wooden vivs...

    After experianceing my boy/girls first tinkle (omg i heard it from the other room, sounded like a fire hose:gasp:) I have been thinking of how i am going to protect my viv when it comes on Friday. Buy lino and lay it in viv so it will be like a cup fitting inside another cup ie not flat on...

    I've just been to the pet store where they are using bark as the substrate, i've got my caves / hide outs ready but other than placing it on top of the lino it might not look very natural. In the shop they had some of the caves hidden in the bark so that only the top or entrance to the cave was...

    ready to switch my two adult leos to lino after reading another impaction story and not being willing to take the risk anymore, but i have been wondering two things: 1. does black on the stomach of a leo always indicate impaction? because my two have black bits spread out which i thought was...

    Hi there! :2thumb: I am buying two new baby bearded dragons in March, and I am setting up the vivs for them. Obviously everyone has the worry, is the substrate going to be eaten accidently and caused impaction in my bearded dragon. I was going to use coral sand, but then I had a thought. I...

    Ok, so this is now just too funny to NOT post... my beardie, Dave (year or so old rescue, missing a foot and with a permanent pout) has a cracking sense of humour, he loves going places and seeing things like looking out of the window... <a href="Pictures by eventfulfire - Photobucket"...

    Hi all, we have recently switched to Lino for our Beardies vivs and although we went for the roughest tiles we could find, I am worried they are still a bit slippy, and wondered what other people with lino do about this? We previously had the girls in vivs with 'fake rock' style flooring...
