There are videos.. but my "director" forgot to upload them lol
So for now, I will show off the pictures!

Adversary was kind enough to make a 5.5g enclosure with custom lid for Panda (gravid A. avic) to get comfy in, so she'll have some space to drop her sac.
He brought it over for decorating, which we had way too much fun doing!

Here is the finished product..

On the right, the green leaves.. that's the water bowl.

Is a second level, enclosed in leaves for privacy :)

The rehousing was flawless.. Panda was her calm, cooperative self :)
(New pictures of her during the rehousing will be in my photo thread in a few minutes!)

Annnd, since we couldn't just leave it at that... I reminded Adversary that I could use some help rehousing my pokie, "Sly" (P. pederseni)

So, after we created this adorable little enclosure (I really do love this one!)

It was a cautious rehousing, but it went flawless as well! I think it helped that we fed him first LOL
Pictures of the guy in his new home also up in my picture thread here in just a few minutes.

Thanks Tommy :) I hope Panda likes it too! So far, she's hanging out near the door lol

Thanks Arachno! I have no idea what flowers the yellow ones are modeled after... and most of the "feminine touch" can be accredited to Adversary, who likes to play with flowers (:p sorry Javi.. it had to be said sometime!)

Honestly, it's not so bad, just be prepared by limiting the places they can go. I have a 20 gallon styrofoam cooler that I do most rehousing in.

I just rehoused a 3" P. pederseni a couple weeks ago... went very easy.

Thanks! :D

The only thing I don't like about it.. is it doesn't fit in the hot case :( And I think she really liked it in there.

But, you know what that means?

Another hot case... :D lol

Woohoo!!! I'll start warning people now.

It kinda cracked me up cause it was all the same people working there and they haven't really moved anything around so it hasn't changed. The lady who rang me up obviously never rang you or I up before cause we had the standard "Oh what are all these cubes for? A project of some sort" discussion that turned cool. I love and hate yuppies.

I miss the Container Store up there though.. my first and true love LOL

I remember the first time taking you there. Was like letting a kid loose in a candy store. I think you scared half the people in there with your enthusiasm for it all. :wicked:

We should have filmed it. lol
