They are stickers meant for a wheelie bin. Bought them for 1.00 in home bargains. Works out much cheaper than the ones they sell at pet shops.

Loving everyone's varied set ups. Nice conversion of tv cabinet

how do you attach the ropes and fake plants?I haven't got ropes yet but think they look awesome so will add some.I have fake plants and use the sucker which comes with them but found they kept falling off.I then decided to use silicon to attach them but they still fell off after a few months leaving a nice circle of silicon on the back,which is a right pain to get off.guessing they came off as they didn't hold the weight of the snake... Any tips and tricks would be greatly received :)

Cheers,
Chris

Hi the leaves in my viv are just transfers. You just stick them on like stickers. Bought them in home bargains for 1.99 and are meant for wheelie bins. Easy to clean and gives a good effect.

With the rope I just put a screw through the ends and then push them into the holes on the side of the viv which are made to unscrew the top and sides off.

Hope this makes sense. Suckers are not very reliable, but I'm sure someone on here will be able to help you out more.

All those vivs look amzing this is mine currently


Think i may have to stral the rope idea as dont think the vie will support rubis weight for much longer (not fixed in place just balanced on the background for easy removal). where did you get the rope from? can you just use ordenary rope or does it need to be treated... TA

It's just normal rope. I used three pieces and braided them together to make one thick piece. Then put a nail in each end. Cost about 4.00 from bandq for 5 meters of it.

I did not treat the rope. But have had no problems.
Good luck really gives a good effect and George loves it

yeah the plants are really cheap and in different colours, and the wood is the same price no matter how big or small the piece is.

Wow since I started this thread there has been a massive but great variation in vivs and rub setups.
Really impressed with all I have seen so far... All these snakes have been spoilt for choice

I have now completed my vivarium decor, I have changed the substrate to a grass looking mat (Which I intend to wash as and when, also very comfy and heat mat works well. Also allows burrowing, but much easier to see George than when in aspen shavings).

I have also added a tree (which appears to be a big hit, as he loves climbing).

Look forward to seeing more of your vivs.





Thoughts appreciated

I've got so many ideas for my snake now, thanks guys!

Welshlamb; where did you get the tree from? I've found that Snakey Snake (Yep, that's his/her name) likes to climb, but the vines we have at the moment can't take his weight lol

1.0.0 Naughty puppy dog, Dexter
1.0.0 Lazy Hamster, Heffalump
0.0.1 Corn snake, Sir Severin or Lady Severine aka Snakey Snake
