This is zeus
He is a leopard gecko. He and his girlfriend, Bella, live in a terrarium in my boyfriends room. We adopted them from a friend and LOVE them. When we got them they were living on hard packed sand which is no the best for them. Geckos tend to ingest the sand and get sick. So my bf and I set out to make a tiled floor. we wanted something that looked natural, was smooth and would retain heat. We are stationed in germany so we had to find our materials at the german version of home depot.
We settled on some grey flat rocks that came meshed together. I dont remember how much they were but they were reasonably priced.
I cleaned the bottom of the cage and put the rocks in to see how the would fit.
After that I used tile glue to glue down the rocks
After it dried I grouted it with a dark grey grout and covered it with a few coats of outdoor modgepodge to seal it.
It was a messy project but so worth it in the end. the floor has worked out great.
And here are the geckos enjoying their new fancy floor.
