    Waiting for a phone call/email from my client, sooo have some pics of Basol's terrarium redecoration! :)

    I found some awesome terrarium background paper at the pet store a few weeks ago, and finally got some today. I wanted to redo her background soon anyway, because having the sides open bothers her. The new BG paper covers three sides of the tank.

    This is her terrarium before cleaning it, and before removing the old, boring, desert background.

    Aaaand after! Prep the electric fences folks! (Mind the glare in these photos, they're taken at night so the light had to be on)

    One side (the sides give away where the image loops, LOL)

    Other side, complete with epic glare of a dinnerplate.

    It looks badass with the heat lamp on and the day lamp off!

    Basol quickly made friends with Mr. Rex.

    Enjoy!

    Being almost the same size as a T-Rex is probably going to boost her confidence ! lol.. She's gonna have a big head.

    That is very cool! Your Basol does look like he's absorbing some T-Rex power in that last photo. Be careful!

    Thanks everyone! When I saw the dinosaur paper I couldn't resist. :D

    She was quite baffled at first that the sides of the tank were covered. She kept wandering and peering her nose around the corners of the paper to peek out the front of the terrarium, it was adorable.
