I don't use the styrofoam backgrounds, in part to keep that from happening.Morelia spilota harrisoni * Liasis fuscus * Liasis mackloti * Liasis mackloti savuensis * Anteresia maculosa * Python regius * Gekko gecko * Rhacodactylus leachianus * Correlophus ciliatus * Blaesodactylus boivini

My guys used the cable slots as one of their hides, they never had issues getting out. I flipped the styro over and put the notches at top.

I think if u Apuleius ore dirt in high enough to cover the holes it should be fine

Are there other hiding places and plenty of cover? Silk branches can be purchased at $ stores. My male likes to hide in bamboo.

Yes, it happens a lot with these backgrounds. I use sphagnum moss to block all accesses so that won't happen"Thorr Geckos" private breeder in Normandy.

You can also wet paper towel (maybe even mix a little Elmer's glue in) and stuff the openings. Then when it dries you have kind of a paper mache effect.

If this is an issue just buy the cork bark board that fits and screw pieces of wood or cork rounds to it to make a 3D back ground. I plan on trying that in a few weeks when it warms up and im not getting pounded by a blizzard and maybe 2-3ft of snow.

it's not very expensive (lasts FOREVER), looks nicer, takes up less volume, and is natural.Morelia spilota harrisoni * Liasis fuscus * Liasis mackloti * Liasis mackloti savuensis * Anteresia maculosa * Python regius * Gekko gecko * Rhacodactylus leachianus * Correlophus ciliatus * Blaesodactylus boivini
