The information on the BambooZoo site is as much as 10 years old and in the hobby much has been learned. Though, I believe there is merit in keeping the site open. There are many controversial issues presented in these pages. Please view BambooZoo as a starting point in your research.
These beings are as complicated as we are and deserve more than a basic 5 paragraph care sheet to maintain their health and well being.
My passion has changed. This is where I am today. Change the World.
78 GALLON UPPER TANK
78 GALLON LOWER
THE MALI BUNGALOW
The left side of the tank is heated from beneath with an under tank pad. The basking bulb is a 150 watt and a compact 10.0 UVB The UVB is angled to converge on the main basking site, the log. The temperature at the log is 115 f., The lower rock is 105. Because of the limited space I have given Java a few challenges to overcome. The lava stone conditions his nails which I have never cut ~ though when he came they were talons! The log is somewhat slippery and Java has to use the rocks to get up onto it and get himself balanced. There are 2 bedrooms ~ the overturned plant crock on the cool end or he can choose to lay beneath the log. He uses both. Java is fed a mixture of as many greens, carrots, kale, fruits, kiwi, strawberry tops, etc. There is also a bowl of small seed mix in there. His food dusted with vitamins 2x a week. Java has been here a year and is 4.5 years of age. Java has had cociadia and is just recovering. I will also feed Java day lily flowers when available or sometimes the rice, bean and vegetable mixture I give the birds.
The abode is 3 ft in length and 14 wide, 18 inches in height. 10.0 UVB, 60 watt moonbeam and 75 watt day heat. There currenly is no running water source. This houses 2 leopard geckos, 2 girdled lizards and a new member today, Mouse. Mouse is a 2 year old bearded dragon that is no more than 4 inches snout to vent.
SET UPS FROM THE PAST
Featured here is a 120 gallon. When I ran out of room for it to be used "properly" I stood it up on end! Which was a huge space saver. I used velcro strips to hold the lids in place (2 x 3ft ones). On its end though it was difficult to keep closed, (the weight of the lights). This was the setup that Beck, the day gecko could escape. It was also difficult to maintain the water quality and secure large wood pieces in. Eventually, I got frustrated with it. The last time it was taken out to the garage, my husband said he would never bring it back in the house for me....one of the advantages though is that on it's end I could move it on my own..kinda cat walking it along a few inches at a time.
