    As this is about the third thread of this type in the last six months I've suggested to J-A-X that it might be good to have a sticky thread of people's finished enclosures but in the mean time here are mine.

    My first enclosure, a 2ft fish tank.

    My latest project a 900x750x600 enclosure in a converted tv unit.

    Women just don't understand the passion when it comes to creating these enclosures...the time spent in daydream envisioning what needs to be done & then the hours & days creating it.
    Trying to get into the mind-set of your reptiles & what they'd "like to climb & bask over".
    My missus just shakes her head & tells everyone, "Oh he's off playing God again."

    You've all been good kids and done yourselves proud. If it wasn't me it would have been someone else giving guidance

    So how come you've all stopped at one? You should be on number 2 now... Then you 'have to ' get something in it to show off you're handy work :)
