PostSubject: Slowy But Surely. Another Update! *Almost Done!*   Sun Oct 13, 2013 8:04 pm

Soooo.... I decided to build my tegu an outside AND inside enclosure. Only due to the fact that once shes breeding size then she'll be staying outside 24/7 to hibernate and then I can use the enclosure for another monitor. Im thinkin a black throat Wink

Well its 8ft L x 3ft W x 3 1/2ft H
I pick up the custom sliding glass doors tomorrow.
Ill continue to post pics the further along with it I get.

Very cool, I think If I built a huge enclosure I'd go bigger and get an Asian Water Monitor I got to pet sit one of these before, he was all of 6' and walked around on a Leash!


There was fairly large male for sale on craigslist the other day not sure if hes still there.

Flush mount the light.
Put bedding in there, along with decorations and her soaking pool.

Her pool is filled up with some water now.
Still need to put some plants/shrubs around her pool to cover the grey waterproof tarp.


Now she has a basking spot/hide (Theres a hole dug under the basking spot to act as the hide)


Heres a whole shot of it.
Gonna fill the back up with some décor also.


The outside is in the process of being painted and stained again right now.
Will post pictures of it in a little once that's done.

So all that's left to do is:
Finish the painting/staining.
Fill it up with décor/plants/shrubs.

Im sure Sean will be posting some pictures up of it also.

How does it look now?!

Got some painting done!
Gonna do some staining tomorrow.


Also forgot to mention that the light above the pool is just temporary.
Gonna end up mounting a light or 2 to the back of the enclosure at the top to brighten the inside a little.
