Mini-Reptile Room

Here is my work in progress. It started as a junk closet under the stairs and down the hallway to the kid's rooms. Just accross the closet is a bathroom that is nice for use of the tub and sink for soaking my beardie and cleaning cages.

I have my water dragon on top in a 4X4X4 area (sloping 45 degree ceiling, so the height in the back is just over a foot). I installed 1/4inch sliding glass doors.

The bottom, for now, is just a 40gal breeder tank for the beardie, and 20 gal tank for the BP (ball python). They fit like a glove in that space.

The next step is to elevate the snake tank about 12 inches on a simple stand. This will provide better viewing, maybe better temps, and allow me to slide in and out the dubia colony hidden behind the snake tank.

I'm working out plans for a better viv for my beardie, but he'll be fine for a while. Since the pics were taken, I have installed a small fountain in the WD area and will be adding some more plants and maybe a filter on the bigger water pan.

Oh, since I have 3 boys who are homeschooled, and a 14 yr old foster daughter, and twin 19mo foster daughters (just about done with the adoption), the closet has locking door (front door + key type).

Looking in from the hallway:

Frodo was feeling left out. So here is a pic from back in November. He's (she actually) has grown a LOT since then!



I want to see the pics, this sounds awesome! I'm trying to work out something similar in my own home right now.

Sorry, the place they were hosted apprently has some issue sharing them as I thought (I can see them, but I have an account with them...).

Does this work for you?

BP is a ball python.

In his viv, I took some foam board and added self adhesive tiles (3 for $ at dollar store) and cut to fit the back, sides, and bottom. Helps keep temps and humidity up for the tropical snake.

i feel so sad reading your about me 😢
Clapton is acclimating okay I think. He's quick as lightning so I'm not sure how much I should bring him out of his house yet. He's not at all interested in his salad though. I wonder if I should change what I'm giving him. Least he's eating his crickets.

Things to do:
Buy calcium powder
Material to raise surface for basking spot
Scenery decals for back of tank
Taking my beardie for a walk
Hi everyone, I have a question please. I have a thick branch I got from outside. It has been in freezing temperatures so I know that it is insect free. I took it off the ground and sat it up during a night we got down to 15 so the entire thing would freeze. Well tonight I put white vinegar all over it too cleanse it since it won't fit in my oven. Do I need to rinse with water tomorrow or is it fine left alone dried?
