    if you wanted something a little different, i'd put a basking light in that outputs UV and a Basking rock, preferable a large one, and add either some small dragons like central netteds or red barreds, and change the sand to red desert sand, itd be good for a trio of either species

    or you can def put a python in it or small monitor, if you add a bit more hiding space

    you did it back to front. You're supposed to build the enclosure to suit the animal you want to put in there

    With more upright branches/sapling lengths and less hides you could probs raise some juvenile Boyd's or angle heads on that substrate.
    Peat or coir tends to be fairly dusty unless you keep it moist, the dust may lead to respiratory or eye problems down the track, if the enclosure was half the size I would say maybe a tarantula.
    Young water dragons may do well in that but I would set it up differently, swap that sub with astro turf or newspaper and that will open up to more species being housed in that suitably.
    Good luck and post it up again when you have something in there.
