    Hi, just getting set up to hopefully welcome an awesome male Cuban Boa in the next few weeks. I have a temporary 3x2x2 viv and will upgrade after 6months (he's abot 5ft now).

    After commenting on a few threads recently I thought i'd just start my own and share my methods in case they might help someone else out : victory: Firstly, I do not use RUB's, so I can't comment on the set up of a RUB or other tub. I use wooden vivariums as my animals are in my front room and...

    Recently set up my viv for my new beardie and thought I'd join this community to gain more knowledge. I've researched and spoke to many different people who handle bearded dragons and found that everyone does things differently. My beardie is 6 to 8 weeks old and I'm not sure if he's a male or...

    So I'm setting up my vivfor a leopard gecko but it does look a little empty. I've seen plenty of java wood in the local pet shop but it can't help noticing the ridiculous price tag. Does anyone have any suggestions of where I can get it cheaper, or if I could make my own similar type thing...

    Hi, just got my new viv for my boa (6x2x2) I have installed the lamp holder and guard about a quarter of the length (for hot end), just deciding where to place the probe? With the smaller viv i had it at half way so that there was a gradient either side. But unsure wether it would be suitable to...

    I'm greenlit to get a Coastal Carpet this week (see my thread "I'm in love - but can I handle it?") and beyond excited! She's a big 7ft and 3-4 years old. We have a 4x2x4 viv currently set up for a Knight Anole. He'll be rehoused as he's only using a tiny part of it. So my Qs are - what do...
