Blazey said:i was going to get a huge viv for Don, 8x4x4 i wanted, with reinforced glass wouldve cost £400+.
the rooms free, larger than a viv could possibly be an its not hard to maintain at all.
Its Dons first birthday on the 16th August!
loulou said:Blazeys room is great for her bosc and i really love the set up. I cant personally see anything wrong with a room set up for older boscs ours have access to a room 24/7 but have a basking station like blazeys although ours is a 6 ft viv instead of (not sure what you call yours blazey) the set up blazey uses and thats where their heat digging area and a huge great big rock is to bask on, along with uv which we do use ourselves as the research is newish and still being discussed/observed and no stone conclusion has been made yet (so for all i know i waste 50 quid a year on uv but until i know for sure i will keep doing it). but then again I do know people that have boscs with no uv and they are fine in themselves so i wouldnt like to make an opinion one way or the other, besides ours only get the uv when they are basking or digging or near their basking station. for the uv and heat we use a powersun but that will be changing to a mega-ray in the near future as our powersun is due for renewal.
Its great having them run around aint it I love walking into our guys room they are great i just have to watch my toes.
PS if you are going to have a viv get one with a nice deep front so you can put in lots of substrate for him/her to dig in, they love to dig their own burrows.
