hey guys, so i just finished building an 8x4 for my black throat (which is doing a lot better now thanks to everyone that offered me advice which is hard to find through all the bull online), and now i have a little bit of a substrate dilemma. first of all heres some pictures (obviously nothing set up yet, can only see one dome where the basking spot will be)
sorry for such terrible pictures. OSB lined on the inside with FRP, siliconed all openings/gaps, and the black holes are two big rubbermaids in each end to fill with dirt and turn into hides (allowing for digging). my floor would not be able to support thousands of pounds of dirt so thats what i did to problem solve.
the dirt is no problem, will be getting that from my backyard, the problem is mulch. the white areas where the tub doesnt cover, i wanted to fill with mulch, although up here in ontario the only places that sell cypress mulch (within 2 hours of me) have prices that would cost way too just to put a 3 inch layer. any suggestions for what i should do? the only answer im seeing is just having to cover that in dirt too, any input?
also please any criticisms and input on the actual enclosure would be great. thank you!
