Is this cage setup ok for now?


New Member
hey guys, just wondering if this little guys cage setup is ok? (Ignore the ghetto lamp setup it’s temporary) I have two other females I raised at adolescents but never a baby. He’s in 3foot by 2foot reptibreeze cage with a 5.0 linear bulb (I know he needs a linear tube but it’s all I could afford atm lol.) and a 75w basking bulb. He seems happy, a nice grass green color has lots of plants and vine to climb on. Lmk what you think and what changes I need to make, thanks!

Nice little guy you got their. I guess if it has to do for now then it has to do. But there is a few things you need to change pretty quickly. Like trees with branches, those vines can be dangerous. Also the lighting like you already mentioned. And a few other things.
