I’ve got my female in a 75 with a custom built riser. The riser has sliding glass doors and makes the cage another 16" tall. They love to climb, keep that in mind. Mine usually basks and sleeps in the upper part.

Sorry, just saw this post. Don’t have photos of it finished, but here is it right after I put it on.



The upper section is just for the lights, there is a metal screen separating it from the living space. The tubes are for the misting system. I have since added two larger store bought vines, they are attached to the inside of the screen (at the top) and go down to the branch.

You want to put a body of water in there , if you don’t she’ll die. I’m just saying

If the warning was for me, I do have a large green shallow tote in the right side. She’s in it all the time. You are correct, gthey definitely need a water container large enough for them to comfortably lay in.
