    The back walls were painted with a water-repellent paint. The tree trunks I'll screw tight at the weekend

    Awesome enclosure Josch! Looks like your frillies are in for a treat! I hope it looks as good as your Kimberley rock monitor enclosure!

    Looking good Josch! "Your Frillies are in for a treat" essentially means they are going to love their new home.

    The next step is to refine the artificial habitat with stones, roots, and much more sand.

    The plants grow well and I hope that in another six months the impression of a natural habitat has arisen.

    Great work Jochen. The Ficus clearly likes the enclosure too! Live plants help to keep the air clean and fresh, and help to make enclosures smell very natural.

    Thanks guys,

    yes Jamie plants are a must in my terrariums. Good microclimate and variety for the lizards. I watch the frillies repeatedly when feed from earth an rotted or dry leaves.
