The last picture is great! I think thatís the face my sister saw when she said that they look like "grumpy little monsters." So cute!

You think that is great, I wish I had video of her chasing the laser indicator of my temp gun all over the enclosure. It was amazing, spent like 5 minutes chasing it everywhere. Had her spinning in circles and everything.

I was on the floor it was so funny....

i have the cheap temp gun, so no laser pointer.... but now you make it sound so tempting. I though I would get bored of her eventually, but I could spend hours each day watching her, even basking. If you ever get a picture of her chasing the laser pointer, please post!

Hi!

I don`t know how to post such big photos here, so I give you some links...
At first there is my terra, beginning with the left side. It is 2,7m long, 0,7m wide and 1,0m high and there live 1,2 acanthinura nigriventis.

Wow, your setup is great. It gave me a lot of ideas I can try. I love the way you made the bottom hides. How tall is your enclosure and what is your basking temp? Mine is 20 " tall and I have to have to have a low basking area because any higher and it gets too hot. I could probably make hides like yours on the cool side though.

Hi. those enclosures are amazing. How did you make your back wall and what did you use to make it?

Hi!

I am glad, you like my pictures. No, the other guys and me, we built our terras ourselves. The back walls are all made of styrofoam and (now I don`t know the english word, I`ll try to subscribe it...) "glue you need for laying tiles in the bathroom". You have to stick styrofoam plates on the back walls of the terra and then sculpture some structures in and stick other styrofoam plates on, to get the rock formations. After that you applicate the "glue" and some give it color after its dried. You even cold throw sand on the fresh "glue", then the Uros can climb better.
If you want, I can post some pictures of the construction of my terra last year.

Ah, and the ocellatas in my video... the female is that restful, because she is pregnant. It is a couple of a friend in my forum and he hopes, she will lay her eggs in a week.

Greets, Eva

Yes, please send pictures of your construction. Iíd love to see them. I think you described using caulk. How long did you have to wait for the caulk to dry on the styrofoam before you put it in your terra?

Mlove - Thanks for the compliments. My enclosure is 24" tall. The basking is 125F.

The tubing goes into the bottom level into some rubbermaid containers which I am using as their sleeping chamber. I built a door on the left side of the enclosure so I can remove the rubbermaid and clean them out when necessary.

That is such a great idea. I wonder how I could make a lower level since I only have a partial top opening. Do you think it would work if I did not nail the frame down? My setup is 2 1/2 ft wide but my top only partially opens at 20 " on hinges. Do you think it would look okay if I only made a lower mini lever at one corner?

I think the "glue" might be grout - is it the stuff that ends up between the tiles as well? I would love to see pictures. Eventually Iíll need a bigger terra (I think thatís a perfect word for it!), and Iím thinking of building rather than buying now.

Thanks for your help. Iíll try building it tomorrow or the next day. I bet the uros would love it and I like the way the layers look.

Since this seems to be a popular topic, and many people are interested and/or willing to share pics, Iíve asked Doug, the webmaster, if he will make a special page for pics of Uro enclosures, and also add it to our "more info" links. That way, when people make a new enclosure or there are people interested in what othersí cages look like, we donít have to start a new thread or anything. If youíd like to participate, let me know (you can send me a pm), and Iíll post info when the new page is created.
