Viv pics only thread

Please forgive my posting a question in the Viv pics only thread?

There are more vivs here than I could possibly count and nearly every homemade/wood one has the sliding glass doors so I want to ask here;

WHERE are you getting the tracks for the doors?! The glass will be easy but I have spent a few days calling and searching online for the simple tracks with the little center divide to no avail. I am desperate so I decided to put on my rhino suit and ask here lol.

Thank you to anyone who can give me a vender online b/c none of the home improvement centers, cabinet makers, glass shops, furniture makers etc. here have them...whew.

HereThereBeDragons, first of all your not hijacking this thread, that's was this thread is for, showing off your viv. :laughing6:

I mean this with all due respect, your viv's are a mess, :wink: and I love looking at them. Your dragons must really feel like their out in the wilderness cause there's alot to expore. It seems like you've used alot of things you already have which makes it look interesting. Are the greens artificial or natural?

We all love looking at pics here so keep them coming. :D
 
It's occasionally a little messier than intended, but does kind of give it a less 'specimen holding tank' atmosphere.. which I'm sure they appreciate, as long as a few things are under control..
I'm still phasing out some loose sand and debris that got very shifted around during an odd frog-fostering venture.

I kept one basking spot, very few hides and crevices, and no overly tall/steep climbs when they were little, but they're over a year old now.. so I can get a little out there and nothing seems to disorient them.. (they seem to instantly show me they know every possible way around when they like the change in terrain)
Plants are all real, which is partly why they tend to move around and get switched.
Believe it or not I might have to take that huge hibiscus out for a while to save it (at least until more of the spring growth finishes) as they seem intent on devouring the whole thing, and the new growth is naturally their favourite part..
Stones are real.. and heavy.. (that styrofoam-ish stuff just doesn't seem wise with this bunch), shells are real, all the wood except for the plastic dollhouse.. lot of the bedding and hammocks are old cotton shirts.. (it's a step up from the underwear hammock)
Everything is what it looks like, pretty much..
Might take pictures of the actual outside stretch of the habitat after I redo it.. .might be hard to picture what I was talking about.

I knew that was underwear, but I didn't want to say anything in case I was wrong and you thought I was crazy. :lol: Beardies don't like change so It's interesting that they don't mind your re-arranging things. I'm not up on eatable plant/flowers, it's something I need to get versed on, I'm sure you researched it all before you put them in the viv. How many beardies do you have in this viv, are they the same sex and have they been together since being a hatchling? It's all very interesting, I look forward to your next set of pics.

Sherri, I had the same problem and I'm sorry to say I never did find one. I did however come up with a different (and better IMO) solution. I basically took a piece of wood and cut a small L shape into the side. I then nailed it to the outside. So basically (I use Plexiglass) Then bottom of the door sits in the grove and then at the top put magnets, like the old style TV entertainment centers had the push lock types. So now I can remove both doors and really get anywhere I need to and don't have to worry about the area around that would need to be swung open. I just pull them out and set them aside. Hope that helps here's a picture

Grove is on the bottom and the plexiglass is already in place

Here is how I planned on everything looking but changed it to one magnet in the middle instead of 2 (one on each side)

I have actually stained the wood now so it doesn't look so out of place I have really been slacking to finish everything but here's a Link to the process for maybe some ideas for people.

Spyro's tank and sweet new flooring. 40g breeder, UVB and Basking lights on top. Substrate is Slate tile with a tiny bit of play sand to prevent crickets from hiding. I tried to minimize the amount I used and sank rocks in it until I find something better to use. Dunno if I'm done with the decorating. All he needs is a sweet adobe house and he'd be set. He seems to hate his hide though, and I never see him using it.

He's right by the door so he gets a glimpse of the outside world and some fresh air every now and then.

Ill give you all a sneak peak of what Ive been working of for the last month

Ive made most of it by my self. Father supervised and helped when it came to using big tools that I would hurt myself with..

Its 72 inches long, and 4 feet high..

There three compartments on top with removable dividers just in case,

The middle cage has a built in ramp that goes down to the bottom cage, the ramp can be pulled back up and locked if I need to use the bottom cage


Warning lots of photos

Hello , im still figureing out this platform,
So violet laid eggs, weeks ago, she was doing very well , in the last 3 to 4 days her poop was more than runny . Haven't changed much in her diet , an appetite is very good. Should I be considering a parasites remedy as she does get bloated as soon as she starts to eat.
My baby beardie likes to sit in their water bowl. I'm curious on whether it would hurt them or not.
Any thoughts an knowledge will be helpful. Thank u
Im needing some questions answered about my female beardeddragon, I honestly have no idea on age , she was a recuse, as ive had a couple in my life an have experience. So 9 weeks in , she earing well pooping well getting comfortable, then approx 3-4 days ago the digging started. So I got a dig box set up in her 75 g tank. Well within 2 hours she dropped an egg. Now only one egg an its been 10 hours.shouldiBworried
