My wonderful husband has agreed to build me a "built in" multi unit reptile enclosure for all my herps.
It will contain 2 corn snakes, 1 boa constrictor, 1 blue tongue skink, 1 bearded dragon and I am trying to figure out how to implement a tortoise table for a Greek either on the top or cut out with support posts on the sides for the above enclosures.
Wondering if anyone has a multi specie setup like this and if they have any photos and/or advice as far as heating and ventilation. We are thinking melamine interiors with a hard wood exterior/trim. As far as heating I'm hoping to use overhead ceramic or red bulbs. Also thinking of disassembling some aquariums and repurposing the glass to make either sliding or drop down cage fronts. In having multiple animals each would need its own micro climate and I'm also wondering how to ventilate without having the "next door neighbors" air being directly exchanged into another animals enclosure. Would ventilation holes on one side and on top be adequate?
Tops would be solid with heavy duty screen cutouts for heating and lighting. I'm trying to think of what I could be missing and not thinking of so any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks so much!
