Terrarium for leopard geckos (Eublepharis macularius)
Terrarium with full equipment and decoration for leopard geckos (Eublepharis macularius) of size 105/40/50 cm (length/depth/height). As day lighting we used halogen bulbs and one Sun Glo day bulb, which at the same time served as terrarium heating elements along with heating cable safely installed in substrate. As night lighting, on the other hand, we used Night Glo bulb which creates a great opportunity for user to observe animals at night.
Specially designed controller with proper sensors (hidden between plants) installed inside terrarium is responsible for keeping the right temperature and for switching the lighting on and off. The controller also serves as electronic thermometer and hygrometer. Whole wiring was esthetically hidden between two upper particle boards and was connected into one power cable. We also created an opportunity to manually switch lighting on and off thanks to two double light switches.
As a part of decoration, we placed desert style structural background on all sides (including ceiling). Three hides and fake plants were integrated into background. We also added a branch, a water bowl and animal friendly sand as a substrate.
