Above, pictures of my viv in the "before" stage, awaiting it's make-over lol.

I am planning on changing the inside completely with a rocky forest theme, with loads of elevated area and the forest theme incorporated in the background aswell.

I am going to be using egg crate to create the elevated areas, as so done in the follwing pic (which is not my viv, "yet" lol):

Right, Let's Get Started

Shopping list:

*egg crate (ordered, and on the way)
*silicone adhesive, latex free
*PVC connectors
*spaghum moss
*I'm thinking cork bark landscape: river rock gravel slate driftwood pieces lots of plants (I'll let you know what I use when I get to this step)
*and anything else that comes to mind

Is that cedar chips?

Make sure that you close all those holes, so the snake doesnt get stuck in anyway!

IMO still not safe.

Papertowels, carefresh, newspaper, and reptile carpet are the safest ways to go.
