What do you think of this idea???
I have a large TV stand in my room that holds my aquarium and I was thinking aboutt an idea.. Just need some in put on how it could work.
I was thinking of taking out all of the shelves and turning into a large reptile terrerium.
Do you think this could work?
Any ideas on how to make it work?
I will post pictures of the stand, and let me know what I could do with it.
I would need to see a picture for an idea.
Also, do you know what type of wood the stand is made of? That is a huge factor is you do something that requires any humidity/misting.
I know its not real wood, its the stuff you put on top of the wood to make it look a little nicer.
I will try to post pictures up tomorrow.
The internet is down at my house, so Im using a wireless connection at the Library.
I want to take out all the shelves, but leave the cupboards and drawers on the bottom intact.
So basically the whole center space is what I want to turn into a terrerium.
Any ideas for it???
Ok, I see your plan now.
Now, would you mind giving us the dimensions of the area? That would be another important factor.
I'll try and get those tonight now too haha
Well, I couldnt find the measuring tape, but
Length is a little less then 5 feet (Im 5'2 so Its not far off)
Height is about 3 feet
Width is about 2 feet.
these are just measuring the area that aould be turned into the terrerium, bit including the drawers on the bottom.
And these are estimates. Could be a little more, could be a little less, but not by much.
Wow, its a lot bigger than it looks!
Since you don't know what type of wood it is, I would avoid tropical herps. Actually, a Bearded Dragon would be perfect in there. You can go crazy with a beardie enclosure, as they love to climb and explore. The actual setup can cost a bit depending on what you do with it, but can be rewarding. They average out around 16-21". They are very friendly as well.
Another great choice would be a Blue Tongued Skink. They are great beginner reptiles from what I've been told, but require a somewhat humid environment. They are very intelligent as well, and can reach 20"+.
You could also do a little "Leo Land" thing with Leopard Geckos. You could fit 3 or 4 FEMALES (only them) in there. A male with other females will result in babies most likely after a while (and that will be a lot), and more than one male will fight.
There are probably many other options, but thats all I can think of ATM. Let me know if you need any care info about the species.
nice space to have :)
cody covered it all there for you,
look forward to seeing how you get on.
my OH is building me a two stack from a book case. :)
