Finishing Touches

Finished off the interior of the 2m x 1m x 2m high terrarium, by mixing in a bag of play sand and placing some large stones around the entrance to the underground hibernacula.When piling stones up, make sure that non can slip and damage an animal, silicon sealant can be used to hold stones in place.

This area will soon become the home of hunting spiders and will warm up in the sun to become a spot for basking . A few heather and lavender plants were then added, plus another log in front of the mesh as another basking zone. A cat litter tray of water for drinking/bathing will be placed just inside the access door(easy to keep clean).

Also topped up my other viv/terrarium with plenty of sand and planted some heather and thyme.
