    Default Chahoua Cage Build and New Family Members

    So I was fortunate enough to aquire a new pair of P.I. Chewies on Saturday. Here are a couple pics of the cage build and the new inhabitants.

    These two are going in a 92qt Sterilite tub. I drilled 3 holes and hot glued on some screen, but I will have two of the holes covered during the winter to keep the humidity up.


    Here is the Lay box/Humid hide. Its filled with sphagnum moss(My personal favorite Humid Box material).

    I added two pieces of bamboo and a piece of wood. All of my cork bark was still being cleaned so the wood will have to do until the cork is ready.

    I zip tied foliage to both sides for privacy. I'm going to add some magnetic ledges in the middle of both sides and another piece of bamboo horizontal above the lay box with some foliage on it.

    At last, but certainly not least are the new inhabitants. You may recognize them. First up is Muse still very dark from the long ride.

    Next up is Mystic who was a "glowing" green color that I didn't capture very well at all. He went straight for the water bowl!!

    He fired pretty dark after an hour in his new home.

    Enjoy and let me know what you think. I'll try to get some pics representative of thier true colors once the settle in.

    Gorgeous chewies! I really like that set-up also. I've used zip-ties before but never thought about using them to attach stuff to the actual sides...great idea.

    Looking great! I would try atleast one real branch as well as the bamboo. I just go find a tree that I know hasn't been sprayed. Cut a limb, scrub it with hot water then bake it at 200 for about 20 mins. Maybe because it isn't as slick as the bamboo but I found they liked the real wood and cork bark the best.
