Some of my enclosures.

hi guys,

I just thought I would share with you guys some of my enclosure, I made them all here in Rwanda unfortunately the wood is sh!t here You will never find dry wood or you have to pay a fortune ... So you always have to make a plan with the cages but still fine anyway...
Please feel free if you have any advice or anything that could make my reptiles happier (I think they are very happy though !! ) :-D
And any question are welcome as well !

here is my monitor lizard cage.

An other one with my Niloticus out just to give you an idea of scales. and I'm sure you noticed the glass cracked on the top left corner but that whats happens when you are hamering with the glass on (stupid me :smt021 )

P.Semi enclosure this time its the fault of the wet wood (the windows crack)

B.Fuliginosus (No bloody crack on the one !!!! :smt018 )

Cheers !

I think they look very good!
One of the most tragic things I know about human nature is that all of us tend to put off living. We are all dreaming of some magical rose garden over the horizon instead of enjoying the roses that are blooming outside our windows today.

Those Philothamnus are very boldly marked!
Nice work.

If you'd appreciate some i would loose the newspaper and use a bark or a leaf litter or something fro the Philothamnus counter sink the waterbowl in that so you can't see it so easily would make a nice improvement.
But a branch or a piece of wood for the house snakes they enjoy a climb too.

Thanks mate I'll do that.
No probleme for the philo and lampro but for the newspaper the pb is as I said a few time I'm in the middle of nowhere I can find any of "safe" substrat the only thing I could use is when I'm using the chai
Saw use the fine wood getting out but there are definitely some trace of oil in so I think it can be bad for the snake no ?
And I'm scared by using something from here they would get parasite what do you recon ?
Thanks for the advice though !

I know Im really late to this thread and it might be too late...but if you get some river sand and bake it in the oven at 250 for an hour that sterilizes it....might be nice
