Cage Improvements

Postby Halogen » Sat Dec 02, 2017 6:22 pm

I just deep cleaned my skinks cage today, and while there is now a bunch of fresh eco earth (48 quarts) and a bit of reptibark (not adding much to test it out) i think i can improve it. Any suggestions?

Our two like more wood in their hab- pieces to crawl over/under, and even climb, as much as their stumpy legs allow. We rearrange the wood every few weeks to give them some variety, and they spend a fair bit of time wandering around checking it all out when we do.

I agree with BlueyBob, you need more enrichment items. Branches, hollow logs, hides, fake plants, etc. give your skink things to explore, and will be better for their mental health.
