Thanks again to everyone for their helpful advice and speedy responses.

I guess they came from the peat moss I bought for her eggs. Ironically, she dug alot in there this time but did not lay there. I found eggs all over the enclosure. Even one in the water! We did not keep them.

Good to see you are still around the forums Ingo. A teardown is in order for sure. We have 2 powersuns (not pictured because they had burned out and we were waiting on the new ones to get here) and a flourescent and a heat lamp as it is getting cooler this time of year and they are by a window. We try to keep the temp in the livingroom 75 but that still isnt quite warm enough for them. I need to go buy some supplies to redecorate the cage. I sm sure the plants can be washed but the carpert and padding will have to go. I will have to see what I am up against when I take it apart. She always climbs the hanging baskets in the back (he is too heavy so it is a good way for her to escape him) and he usually sticks to the bamboo. I have considered a wall, but am worried about the high jumps they make to the water and broken bones. Also, we are concerned that they may try to jump on the lights and get burned or hurt. We do have about 1 foot of unused space at the top because of this. Any thoughts anyone? Pimp my viv?

The enclosure is pretty cool. My brother built it. The bottom is one piece, the walls are 5 pieces plus a sliding door and the top is a single piece. It is modular so that if we ever for some unforseen reason have to move it out of the livingroom, we can. Also we have put it on a piece of plywood that is on about 6 of those moving discs so we can slide it away from the wall in case of -heaven forbid- a leak. It is hella heavy.

It does look kinda messy now because when they eat they sling the mice and wet calcium dust goes everywhere. Ill take care of that during the remodel.

Thanks again for all the responses.
