    Default New 20 Gallon Long Terrarium

    Benjamin just got a terrarium upgrade. She was being housed in a 20g tall tank for a while after her old 20g long cracked during cleaning (I left the UTH on! ) She now has a new tank with a new under tank heater and an overhead ceramic heater.

    Years ago I made her a "soft hide" out of a basket and a beanie hat with fabric stretched over the top. That's the one with the green and black. It is her favorite hide. And machine washable!

    Anyway, she seems to love it!

    And here's the girl herself. She's rather large.

    Have you small tiles or dominoes to lift the 20 long off the glass it sits on? Those provide necessary ventilation for the heat mat.

    If that's all her (and she's not gravid), I suggest a diet. A trim leo will live longer.

    Please share a photo of her soft hide so we can see it better.

    Yes, she is rather plump. She was fairly recently switched from mealworms to crickets, so the weight is slowly coming off.

    Here is her soft hide:soft hide2.jpg

    I basically trimmed the handle off of a small wicker basket and lined it with a beanie hat.

    Also, I have rubber supports under the tank for ventilation.
