Talking Obi's natural set up is complete!

After waiting a long time for the cage to arrive, I finally have Obi's home all finished! I am happy with how it turned out, and I think that tonight my little bear will have great fun exploring everything new.













In the corner, you can see the roof of his log cabin, which is burried underground and accessed via the cork tube. I am hoping that Obi will nest in here, after I move his little nest into it. That's what I hope, haha.

As promised, here's a list of everything I have used, the price and where to get it from! I really didn't go much out of my way for these things so it's quite easy to acheive the natural look! I do plan on adding in some smallish rocks to the sand when I find some that I like ^_^
1) Maxi Duna Multy (80, My local pet store)
2) Megazorb 85l, used around half of the bag (8a bag, My local equestrian store)
3) Woodlands small hut (6, Pets at home)
4) Cork Bark pieces, Baked for around 3 hours at a high temp, then scrubbed with a toilet brush inside and out before being sandpapered to a smooth finish inside (14, My local reptile store)
5) Moss (Kindly given to me to LoobyLou!)
6) Small grass hut (0.75, Pets at home)
7) Cress, seperated into 2 pieces and pushed into toilet roll tubes to keep it steady and contained once burried (0.24, Morrisons)
2 x Large play sticks (10, Pets at home)
9) Small play sticks (3, Pets at home)
10 ) Play sand, baked for 30 minutes until dry (2.50, Tesco)
11) 29cm Karlie Wonderland wheel, coated with clear plastikote (15, Amazon)
12) Plastikote, small pot (3, B&Q)
13) Mopai Wood, leeched for 2 weeks to remove the tannins and baked until dry (2, The range)

Grand total of 144.49
Eeek, lets hope he likes it huh

WOW, that is utterly amazing! It looks wicked awesome and also shows you can make just the same style setups in a plastic tank cage as you can in a large glass detolf and they look every bit as good. You have done a wonderful job with that, I hope Obi appreciates your efforts and doesn't redecorate it!

Oh and it's nice to finally seen maxi Duna Multy "in the flesh" and all I can now say is -why on earth is this cage not on the shelves of the big green shop instead of the mini D?

Thanks everyone, it's really great to hear you like it!

And your right. This cage is just fantastic with no downsides in my opinion. The zoozones of course are the same size, but I just can't deal with the pink/blue base with a natural set up! Ohh and I'm pretty sure there will be some redecoration and loss of greenery haha.

I understand that point entirely! If I ever wanted a ZZ2 I would really want a white base for it.

I spent a long time searching for a white ZZ2, and travelled in my local area to visit the ones I found, but the clear plastic was always poor and I just got fed up of hoping, hence the reason I paid 80 for this. I did haggle it down from 96 though
