    Something i put together for my Lacie hatchling, already started on something bigger.
    The whole backdrop gives him enough cover to get from one side to the other, Asmo seems pleased for now :)

    Misjudged how much substrate i would need, going to raise the floor a couple inches almost up to glass level when I can get back to bunnings.

    They're crummy phone photos, but here's the set up to my adult tristis monitors. In the corner beneath the basking site is an assortment of hollow branches that they like to sleep/shelter in. The live plants are recent additions. Not sure if the plants will thrive, or if the monitors will flatten them. At any rate, the plants provide decent cover. Before I added the live plants it was plant cuttings.

    Can anyone spot the second monitor?

    Hey guys,

    I’ve got room available for either a 6x2x3 or a 6x3x3 enclosure and am after recommendations for a pair or trio of small-med monitors that I could keep.

    Besides ackies and recommended species? I live in QLD and would like something not commonly kept that ideally could be kept in a enclosure like that comfortably.
