    What about getting it UVA and UVB rays? I don't own a reptile yet and have always wondered how that works. Isn't it a necessity to get UVA and UVB rays?

    Another way i found more effective for the Dowel is to
    Cut it to length.
    Pilot drill some holes in the centre of both ends.
    Solder your self another hole on each side of clic-clac
    Put the dowel in place
    Place washers on button screws
    tighten

    There is no way it can dislodge and provide an exit

    IMO its a good idea to paint the outside with black (or other dark colour) to reduce the light level, just leave plenty clear so you can see what is going on inside.

    Really good DIY, helped me out to make my click clack, will try get some pics up soon. And for the above post made by womapythons i just cut out the hole, hot glue gunned the frame to the lid (sanded it back a bit to give it a rough surface to adhere to) then let that dry. Glued the edges underneath And ontop for extra strength..
    Mitght be a little hard to know what im talking about so ill try get pics as i said :)

    Yeah i use a cardboard box that i got my business cards sent to me in, its perfect size for him, but i took it out to take the pic. Just about due for an upsize too. Will post pic of next container too if u wanna see it. Will do less holes, more dowel lvls,and larger water bowl & maybe a fake cave hide. :) :)

    I made up a click clack just this past wknd. This thread gave me a few ideas.
    Since I am a anti-click clack person I have made sure that it is completely sealed and escape proof.
    It is only a temporary enclosure to house new snakes in away from my main collection for a few months.

    outside of the click clack make a hole just big enough to put the probe through or you are using a heat mat just put the probe ontop of the mat under the click clack
