    Re: DIY Home-made "realistic" Hides

    I may be the only dissenter... i tried them. Made 3... used one.

    Sealed it, did everything.

    It cracked, got wet, turned to mush. Really was not comfortable finding my snake sitting in the mess of chemicals and sludge.

    Re: DIY Home-made "realistic" Hides

    I had the same thing as Bruce, mine got all soggy so we removed them. I do really like them for my bearded dragons. In dry climates they work great, with the dragons they work as a hide or as a basking spot.

    Re: DIY Home-made "realistic" Hides

    made 2 so far and after baking a na hour the outside alright but the inside is still soft some i think between the oil and the fact the were sealed they didn't bake as well I am gonigo t rebake them some tomorrow after I remove the second fro mthe mold. and allow the inside ot bake harder. I will then try one in the cages and see how it holds up to the humidty of my tubs. and if they fail the other will become a asf chew toy ( won't seal it until I see how the other does. and i will go from there. I made one out of scuplty type clay and the nsake loves it lol but i tihnk i made the wall too thin cause itbeen chipping at the bottom a lot ..

    Re: DIY Home-made "realistic" Hides

    I have had these for oh I dont know about a month or so... and I took the hides out tonight to look at them and one was all swollen and smelled bad. I think that is why my snake had always been in his other hide (not too wierd since his other hide is on his warm side and thats where he spends most of his time anyways). I am pretty sure this is my error in not sealing the dough well enough. Just thought I would share...

    Re: DIY Home-made "realistic" Hides

    I was sitting here today and heard a loud pop, the tank 5' from me had one of these hides (she really loved it too) and it cracked in 3 pieces.
