Some enclosures inspired by nature.
They look incredible mate, well done.
What do you keep in them?
Great enclosures! I really like all the plants. What are you housing in these? The fish tank would be nightmare to clean though..
Very nice setups
nice work!! Live plants?
Oh how long have they been setup? The heat lamp wont fry the plants?
Looks like real plants to me , mr Nuts
Some of mine:
nice, where did you get the moss?
Back yard and a mates aquatic plant farm. lol
Yeah, all natural plants in these setups. It takes alot more maintainence & with so much cover it is hard to get a decent look at the inhabitants some times. However I find that it is fine to just sit & stare at the setup itself without always seeing the fauna. If I find cheap aquariums I will snatch them up just to start again, it is very rewarding to get it just right but if you leave it unattended for any length of time there can be all sorts of issues. Certainly the hardest setups to maintain. These setups have been months in the making to get the right plants etc, if you get the heat lamps at just the right distance they heat without burning. In the 4 ft aquarium I have a Eastern Water Skink, he seems to absolutly love it in there, thanks Book for that one. The taller enclosure has my Pink Tongue Skink housed. Skinks are the best reptiles for these type of setups especially if they are from tropical, humid areas in nature. Thanks for checking it out guys, some other fantastic examples from Mr Nuts, Scleropages etc (just so you know I will be poaching ideas)
Scleropages you sure have a knack for growing moss, I only put newspaper and sticks in my enclosures and look at you guys that have these natural set ups with complete wonder and envy.
Nice enclosures guys, Shredapezzy isn't that a bearded in the 3rd and 5th pic?
On the diagonal branch top left.
Yes, the Beardy sneaks in for photo ops.
What are you kepping, if anything in these master pieces Scleropages?
just think this thread should be bumped up and Shredapezzy should post pics of his other enclosures,
also Shredapezzy I would think that that enclosure is to wet for a bearded dragon which I can see sitting on one of the branches
trench which pic is the dragon in... found a bluie (i think, lol) but no dragon.
no those are pink tongue skinks, the dragon is best seen in the top left hand corner of the 3ard pic
thats a pink tongue skink not a bluey ^
thanks, i have no idea about lizards...when i first flicked through i thought it was just plants in there...
Yeah, it definitely is way to wet for a Beardy! He lives in a much more Beardy friendly enclosure. He usually visits during the photo shoots then heads back to his home.

Some new additions.
I thought it was a bit strange that you would put him in that enclosure to live as you seem to know you stuff any pics of the beardeds enclosure how many pink tongues do you have?
awesome enclosures mate
heres one I did a while ago but didn't have the right lights so it died pretty quick
