    Alright, this is the intended enclosure for my baby Amazon Tree Boa, who will hopefully be here next week. Her starter enclosure, anyway. If anyone has any suggestions or advise, feel free to lay it down. I still have a week to pick it up and make any adjustments.

    I don't know if any of you saw the Silicone II thread I just posted a couple hours ago, but that's what I used to adhere the branch holders to the glass and hold the foliage into the base I made. So....yeah..... Almost done. I have to cut all that stuff off, and replace it with this DAP Aquarium Silicone I just bought. It's about to get real fun over here, so if anyone is bored.....Ha!

    Thanks everyone.

    Wow! Gorgeous enclosure! May I ask where you got your hawaiian-ish looking foliage from?

    Thanks. The grass and those red flowers if got out of a pre-made little basket type thing I found at Goodwill for $4.00. It was huge. There's a lot that I couldn't fit into the cage that I'll use on her bigger enclosure. The yellow and blue flowers I found at a Deals store (a little dollar store type thing) for $1.00 each. I went to Hobby Lobby and their prices blew my wig back!! And pet stores are definitely out!! So I went on a little mission to find some cheap foliage. Goodwill and a dollar store, $6.00, now I have a trash bag full of plants, vines, flowers, etc. A little bleach water, rinse and dry. Done deal. Lol.

    I did that with my BRB enclosure. Its amazing what you'll find at the dollar store, they even had 6' long bamboo sticks for $1!

    Nice! This whole summer I'm scouring Home Depot, Hobby Lobby, and now the Dollar store for materials to add to my custom Iguana enclosure. :)

    Yeah, it helps when you're not in a huge hurry. If you need it, you need it, and you'll pay for it. But if you think and plan ahead, you can save a lot of money overall. I'm already buying hardware, wood, glass, things like that, for when I start to build this bigger enclosure. I find stuff on sale and just tell myself that I'll need it eventually, might as well buy it while it's cheap.

    My biggest fear is, when I die, my wife will sell my stuff for what I told her I paid for it. Haha.

    Thanks! I'm scratching at the carpet with anticipation. If I had barrels full of money, I'd fly out to Vegas and pick her up myself! Hey, whatever happened to global warming? Ohio must not have gotten the memo. I should look into sending another copy.
