Im trying to find a new home for Fritz. Im having a lot of family issues, and I dont really want to get her caught in the middle in case I get kicked out of the house again, so scratch the rabbit cage idea.
How would I turn it into a good leopard gecko cage?

I can offer plenty of advice there. I think I suggested the Leo thing a while back, actually.

Ok, what you want to do is the sliding glass fronts. Lainey's thread has some great pics for that. You may want to drill some small holes for venitation as well.

Since they are mostly terrestrial, you don't need things for them to climb on. They will take advantage of things to climb on if offered, though. You need one hot side that is around 90-95F, and the other side being 10 degrees colder. You need at least 3 hides, and this means 1 dry cool hide, 1 dry warm hide, and a moist hide (which is basically a hide with damp towels or moss in it to aide in shedding). But, since you can keep more than one, you will need more. In an enclosure that large, you can do 3-5 females. Just watch out for aggression.

If you want the actual care, then we can help too.

Wow Willow, that looks great!
Maybe I could do something like that... Hmmm.
Could be possible. I have a lot of space to work with.

I'm a bit late onto this thread, Guppy Girl, but the idea of Australian dryland lizards sounds like good advice. There are several types of bearded dragons. You've got a floor 'footprint' of ten sq feet. Blue tongued lizards are slow moving, apart from snatching food, and will remain on or close to the floor. Some beardies love the water, so a small dish will be appreciated. Make certain all the inhabitants can get out if they venture in. Most beardies love to climb. You need to be able to change the substrate easily. You'll need heat lamps and ease of access to power. It's essential that you take the time to apply a timber protective sealant on the entire job, especially if the timber is veneered as you describe. Something without nasty smells and chemical residues. If you remove the vertical centrre piece you might jeopardize the structural integrity of the reptile house, so it might be worth marking out a large squared hole and cut it out with a jigsaw. That should leave enough support for the top. But, again, coat the timber with a waterproof member. Finally, if you buy insects to breed as food for your lizards, only bring into the house what your actually offering as an individual serve. A house full of crickets is a sure way to ruin relationships with spouse and neighbours.......................they're NOISY! Good luck.

Sorry for the double post, lol, but I thought I'd mention a couple of other Australian dryland lizards. You sem to be able to get pretty much anything over there, so.............shingle back; stumpy tail; thorny dragon. Stay away from the monitors.
