Just a word of caution, the toad will most likely eat or at least try to eat the anole. It’d be best to house them separately.

Possible but not plausible. The toad will only try to eat what it can fit in its mouth. The Anole is far too large for the toad to eat at the size the toad is now. The Anole is also much too fast and spends almost 99% of the time near the top of the setup out of reach of the toad. Plus...the toad is nocturnal and the Anole is diurnal so they run in different circles and rarely meet face to face.

Thanks! This is the first viv I’ve ever built. I am very happy with it so far. It is still a young viv so it will be interesting to see where it goes from here.

I know its quite the question, but what does it consist of? Do you have more step by step pics for a better idea on how it was done?

It wasn’t too bad putting it all together. Just have to be patient because each part needs to completely dry before moving on to the next one so it was pretty much just spending an hour or two a few nights of the week assembling the whole thing.

Here is a link to my google+ album that pretty much has pics from each step of the process.

Let me know if you have any issues viewing the album or any questions on any particular step of the process.

How are you able to keep the water so clean and clear without it going brown? Do you have a filtration system? If not, how often do you clean the enclosure or change the water?

That’s an amazing setup. I couldn’t come close to being that creative with any of mine.
