DIY reptile enclosure with a media center

Postby Bantam.Earth » Sat Jul 28, 2018 7:48 pm

so I converted a bookshelf into an entertainment center the other day and decided to make it a full blown vivarium. At the moment we have an iguana living in it but once its completely stocked with plants I will replace the iguana with crocodile skinks!

heres a link to the step-by-step for anyone interested in seeing the complete build: diy reptile enclosure

What an interesting build! So it functions as both an entertainment center and a vivarium? I don't actually think I've ever seen a multi-purpose viv. Plenty of conversions (My skink's viv was once a tv cabinet) but never anything that does two jobs at once :o

many thanks and yes! as of now we just decorate the top with small things but could place a console of any type on top. the sides could also be modified to hold DVD's or games (with the way things are going these days with tech, I doubt there will be much to actually put in a media center soon..). as far as a vivarium, it is fully functional and so far consistently holding life! :D

Wow …. Iggy's beautiful and he's full of personality and character too ---- I can tell that just by the "expression" on his face and his posture.....

How old is he ?
