So i am going to be needing a couple new habitats because I'll be investing in a couple new beardies in the next little bit. I was looking at some of the different habitats that are 4x2x2 front open. They are all kindda pricey, and it occurred to me that i have an empty two level ferret cage. (Good luck keeping that warm huh) Well i decided to repurpose it into a beardie condo. This is the results for the first day of renovation.
The panels are made of birtch so none toxic. It has plastic trays, but i think i may order the Zen habitat mats to put over them. I'll be glassing in the doors today. I'm open to any suggestions or critiques 🙂

Whoever gets that enclosure is one lucky dragon! I am not the best with finding ways to insulate the enclosure, but I sure am good with decorating!

i have found that using those sticky hang down vine plants give something for the dragons to do.

I, being pretty much broke, cannot afford one, but getting one of those water fountains would be sick!

Day two, I've got the doors glassed in and cable management in place. Still have to install the uvb, the basking decor, and floor mats. Then it's time to start on the bottom enclosure. I'm fortunate that the height will allow me to hang lights in the bottom, so no struggling with lights 😎😎
Here are a couple pics of todays work. (I still have to dress the silicone on the doors)
You can also see how the panels are attached, if i decide i need it back as a cage its easy to revert it back. 🙂

These were a lifesaver when Rocky was younger. Do you find that the beardies get too heavy for them as they age?
Rocky lost interest in everything- the enclosure- he just wants to be a human>
