:) Hello

We pick up our new little addition to the family on Friday a 2 year old Horsefield little boy . At present he has no name so any suggestions would be fantastc .

We are in the process of building his new home and wanted some feedback ... i am looking for slate and some bigger rocks ... and i hope to put some live plants in there too .

Lightening any advice would be great as wasnt sure if i should get a long uv light as the encloser is so big or put a couple of basking areas in there .

anyway this is what we have so far ..

Hoping we have got it right but any other tips would be great . :winkgrin:

hi looking good :) just have one basking area at one end with the uv strip and heat so you have a warm end and cool end :)
you could add some plants like a spider plant or aloe vera plant in there :)

Hello
your horsefield is going to love his enclosure,i love horsefields i have three of them,make sure it is escape proof as they love climbing as well as digging great characters,looking forward to seeing pictures.
i have a long uvb light running through both sections of there outside house and a basking light in both sections and then a cool end at the back of the house.
