I have acquired an adult monkey tailed skink recently. He is old i believe they said at least twenty, he was given away because the elderly lady could no longer care for him since her daughters passing. Im pretty sure theyve had him his whole life and was given to me in a made reptile tank about 30 gal high, with side vents and a glass top.
Anyway hes been in my care for at least a couple of months now, i tossed the top got a screen, setup the proper lighting finally and tried my best to work with what i had (im only nineteen and dont have a lot of money to work with).
i also rearranged and cleaned the moldy grapevine he was housed with and got him some nice thick horizontal basking branches and a nice cork bark hide.

if anyone has tips for the general care of him please let me know! but my real topic is a new house for him.

i just cleaned out my boiler room and put together my old ferret kingdom cage, which if anyone is familiar with either, seems to be the same as the iguana kingdom, both made by superpet. Pretty much im asking for opinions on this cage with my monkey tail. it seems like a great idea much vertical room, decent side to side movement as well. the only obvious part i see being a problem is humidity and heat which i will be modifying the cage with plexiglass in an attempt to keep the moisture and heat in. Has anyone used this cage with any arboreal lizards such as iguanas? or even a monkey tailed skink? any and all help is appreciated!
