    Is there any particular material that should not be used or should be used for that matter when sticking your linoleum to the floor for your enclosure?

    I just would hate to use material that would jeopardize the well being of the iguana.

    Thanks

    I would think that 100% silicone would be more than sufficient for applying the linoleum to the floor and is safe once the fumes escape.

    Do you have to stick it down? if you measure and cut it accurately, it will fit snugly and not go anywhere. That way you can take it out for cleaning easily.

    I would go with 100% silicone if you are doing floors only. You may need something stronger if you are doing any vertical surfaces as well.

    Liquid nails.
    LOL You have obviously never been around a determined large iguana scratching and trying to dig at the floor.

    100% silicone huh? That's sounds great...and as for the seams it's aquarium caulking only correct? At least I think that's the safest...thanks for all the input. I appreciate it as always.

    I wouldn't waste your money in buying "aquarium silicone" as it is just 100% silicone. I agree with Merlin as liquid nail would also work.
