 Safe wood treatments

I just finished building a large encloser for my basilisk and found out that the pine I used to build it is poisonous for her. I need help. What can I put over the wood to save my lizard?

Well, it would probably help if there was a picture of how it was built. But if its a solid enclosure, then I do have a suggestion. You could cover the interior with Great Stuff foam. You could color it to look like rock wall or you could cover it with eco-earth before it dries. Just make sure to seal it when you are done. That way the basilisk canít get to the pine. Iím not 100 percent sure that this would work but its definitely a thought. :)

Good luck!

You can get it at any hardware store. You can also order it online. Its a fantastic product. Just make sure you get the kind that dries hard.
