    Took an extra 2 weeks of long service leave to work on my 4wd, as it turned out the wife had to go back to work early so iv had the kids too, all I could do was work on tanks. So I did some renovating and prep work.

    Leaf tails:

    Moved the Gillens to a new enclosure, this has been scaped for an Ackie now. I'm yet to purchase or find Ackie or 2 I'm after yet.

    New setup awaiting a pair of Hosmer skinks when I find them.

    Again, new setup awaiting either a pair of Amyae or Asper.

    Generic tank, not sure what will go in here yet, if I could find a Primordius or two it would be most happy.

    That's it for the moment, still working on a frog tank and playing with the Gillens setup.

    No worries, Gillens tank below.
    This is 120cm x 60cm x 90
    1 100w halogen lamps with the real concentrated point of light and 1 125 sunglow.
    There is a breading box hidden in there.

    The log on the right is totally hollow so they hang out in there a lot and seem to be active in the morning and afternoon with a good sleep break during the day.

    4 in total, 3 females and 1 male. The rest are hiding in the log for a sleep in the pic.

    They were running around like spastics earlier, when I reached in to check the breeding box one sitting on the top log stick its head in my ear.

    First year of breeding. currently have 9 eggs in the incubator.
    2 should be hatching next week, I can actually see them move inside the egg and make out head from tail when candling.

    I suspect I'll have another couple batches of eggs before end of season, I think the other 2 females are still gravid.
