me and the boy (I dont trust my self with a power saw) made this cute home for two of our three geckos, the 3rd lives in a 20 gallon long tank on top of the home we made.

the frame


All framed and skinned with 1/2 inch plywood.


first coat of paint and sealed with paintable calk


me painting on the geckos on the side


then the stripes


better side view


doors are on (there kinda hard to see) and my mini me so you can see the size of it (shes 2)


and up with the temp hides and dishes (theirs were being disinfected)

and the cute buggers who live here:
Skyla (she was a rescue, notice her half missing toes Cry)


and Hollywood (dont you just love her ?)

Hollywood is a High-Yellow, which is one of the more coomon types of geckos, Skyla is a Trempra Albino, and then we also have Aiden who is a patternless. Here he is

I dont have a good shot of it, but he has the cutest purple tail!!
