Gaia's New Set-up! :)

This is Gaia's new set-up!! The background is made out of styrofoam sheets with spray foam and then carved. A lady in the Edmonton Reptile and Amphibian Society made it for me.





Oh, and one of Gaia!



She does have a humid hide but I took it out for these photos.

Thanks guys! I really like the new background! Way better than it was before! It used to be so boring looking, lol.

Wow Kayla, great setup and Gaia is totally stunning. She's pretty good size already, I'm just a little suprised because the ones I've seen at petco are so small, then again so are the beardies.

Thank-you, she's awsome! The ones at the pet store are usually hatchlings which are tiny!! Super cute though. Gaia is 9 months old already.

That makes sense, she's really pretty. I wanted to get some geckos and beardies, the only think that stoped me was feeding live crickets. I know they make pelleted food, but I never could get my iguana to eat it.

Yeah, you're not supposed to feed Geckos pre-made food like that. They eat Superworms, Mealworms, Crickets, etc. It's not that bad once you get used to the buggies.

I used to have a bull frog I raised from a tad pole and I had to feed him crickets, it was so sad, I like crickets. I'm too soft in some ways.

What I really miss though are fire newts and water dogs, I haven't seen any of those in years.

Awww, cute! Me and my brother raised a Salamander (not sure what kind) from an egg when we were younger (in Elementary school).
My dad, my brother, and I always used to go to the wet lands near where we lived to look for snakes and frogs and such. Well one time we were bad (didn't know it was illegal...) and took a bunch of eggs home. Lots of tadpoles hatched but only one little guy survived. He grew up and then when he was big we went and released him into the wet lands again.
I know now though not to do that, lol.
I don't even know how the little guy survived! I can't remember what we fed him and he didn't have a heat source or anything either...

Ahahaha, that would be awsome!
I REALLY want a Russian Tortoise but I probably won't be able to get one for a bit. I'm hoping maybe in the summer I'll be able to get one.

I will do but only after university when I've moved out. I currently have 4 turtles and I am going to get a 5th. We have a turtle tank for tiny turtles like the musks and I have a larger one for Squishy and Squirt. Karl needs a friend though haha! Don't forget the two bearded dragons, two corn snakes, a Cali king snake and all of the reptiles I look after daiy at college haha! I don't have the room for a tortoise enclosure though currently. I could get a hatchling and upgrade the enclosure but still we currently have no room

Awww, well you'll get him/her one day!! I'm REALLY hoping I'll be able to get a Russian Tortoise in the summer. I'm going to build a Tortoise Table too and he/she can live in the basement! (or... the "man cave" lol)
