You know looking back i realize everything i went through to having something nice to show off my herp. I thought this might help someone that was once my delima. It seems to me DISPLAY CASES are everywhere of all different sizes i ended up with a 2 1/2 ft x5 1/2 ft by 4 ft tall case (jewelry style). I stripped it down (removed all glass shelves) & reinforced the sliding doors plus added slidding locks. on the inside i added plywood half way up the sliding door side (so i could still get in) yet make it harder for any critter to get out. This one had wood on two sides glass front glass top a drilled three inch & a quarter holes on both sides for air &lightcord acsess. I then mounted the lights on the inside, i went through a couple of lights until my temps were where i wanted them. built a custom hide opposite the lights, indoor/outdoor carpet & called it a day, one note i ended up blanketing the top & putting another vive up on top . works great for those medium to big critters who need space. JUST AN IDEA IO THOUGHT ID SHARE.
