    What silicone are you using and is it reptile safe?

  2. Simon Bainbridge on December 2, 2020 at 9:27 pm

    It looks great good job

  3. Louis Eckeman on December 2, 2020 at 9:28 pm

    Hey Richard, I just made my own bioactive enclosure, will you be making a pricing of this one as well? I have 7 Leo’s and the names are: Venus, Neptune, Maxime, Jupiter, Pluto, Luipje and Snake eyes. Your build looks awesome and a very good idea for the moist hide. I’m thinking about implementing the same thing… 😂 thank you for the nice video

    This has got to be the best leopard gecko video on the internet

  6. Diego Hernandez on December 2, 2020 at 9:30 pm

    I’ve never been a fan of leopard geckos, but I just like watching your set ups👌 there fire. All your enclosures always turn out cool

  7. DUFC2001 1 on December 2, 2020 at 9:33 pm

    Hi Mate, sorry to hear you are in Lockdown AGAIN! So many higher tier lockdowns up your way. Fed up to the back teeth with it seeing as the country is STILL not free of COVID!

    My babies names in order of hatching
    Jessica (Little Dot) who isn’t little anymore at 4 months old. She was an only egg the other one failed after a week
    Blaise and Teasel (3 months old)
    Topsy and Turvy (2 and a 1/2 months old)
    Velma and Viva (2 months old)
    Nova and Luna (1 month old )
    Monday My Bee-atch of a neighbour is having her lounge walls channelled out. She is in the flat under me. I am having to evacuate all my Geckos as the noise will be HORRENDOUS for 2 whole days. I will not be able to bear it and my Geckos certainly won’t. Nice how considerate people are during lockdown…………

  13. Layla Ammons on December 2, 2020 at 9:44 pm

    I just got a baby leopard gecko and I named him Harry Smiles. Lol. All of my animals have Singers names so I figured harry smiles would fit him well since geckos always seem to look like they are smiling.😆

  14. Nagito Komaeda on December 2, 2020 at 9:47 pm

    my leo is named Maki

  15. Rinaldo Teixeira on December 2, 2020 at 9:48 pm

    hi love your vids…umm my leos name is Joey

  16. Fiona Tattersall on December 2, 2020 at 9:50 pm

    Really like this but need to ask how you would clean this setup?

  17. Victoria Arnold on December 2, 2020 at 9:51 pm

    Mine is …… Charlie. We call her charlie girl, curly girl and mama

  18. Belinda Moles on December 2, 2020 at 9:52 pm

    I haven’t got a leopard decko but the build is awesome and great seeing how you did each bit. I love leopard geckos smiley faces x

  19. hahe lal on December 2, 2020 at 9:54 pm

    My gecko’s name is dumbie cus he is so dumb

  20. Jades Jungle on December 2, 2020 at 9:56 pm

    This must have taken you soooooooooo long! It was a fantastic result though and I bet it was quite fun to make. If I had a leopard gecko I’d call it Randall 😂 from Monsters inc. I get a kick out of super human names for animals… hence Wayne and Mavis the bunnies.

  21. DamageReport on December 2, 2020 at 9:57 pm

    Love that video, the Leo enclosure is looking amazing. Glad you finally got that done.

  22. Monsterkajiu13 beard on December 2, 2020 at 9:58 pm

    What’s the measurements of the 4 foot long enclosure?

  23. ReptiBro on December 2, 2020 at 10:00 pm

    Love the setup!👍Hoping to do something like this for my Leo!

  24. Reece Hatton on December 2, 2020 at 10:02 pm

    Super unique approach to the setup, Id love to try something like this soon. I have a 3 month old baby leo named Knix after Stevie Knicks

  26. All Things Leopard Gecko on December 2, 2020 at 10:02 pm

    My leopard geckos name is Olive

    Love this setup!

  27. woodhall mtb on December 2, 2020 at 10:02 pm

    1 problem I find is its easy to make nice looking enclosures for small lizards (lepard geckos) but much harder when it comes to the bigger ones (bearded dragons)

  28. Jyrex on December 2, 2020 at 10:04 pm

    Only thing I’d be concerned about is the moist hide. That particle board will soak it up and probably start molding after a while.

  29. Dana Reed on December 2, 2020 at 10:05 pm

    that is awesome

  30. Alyssa Hazelton on December 2, 2020 at 10:05 pm

    I have 3! Shruikan, Igneel, and Padme

  31. Anya Hopkins on December 2, 2020 at 10:05 pm

    I don’t think my gecko is drinking water what do I do

  32. Angie Graham on December 2, 2020 at 10:06 pm

    Omg that looks great well done love it ❤️ my leopard gecko called snow

  33. Depression Hurts on December 2, 2020 at 10:06 pm

    Please do not tell me your using dirt and minerals for your substrate it can be dangerous and cause impact ion but if your not it looks fantastic

  34. David Crookes on December 2, 2020 at 10:08 pm

    Mines Millie too.
    Just moved her into a large bioactic Vivexotic too.

  35. Depression Hurts on December 2, 2020 at 10:08 pm

    I named my baby leopard gecko Blizzard

  36. Jaxon Scott on December 2, 2020 at 10:11 pm

    Baby leopard geckos name is Leo short for Leonardo

  37. Candy Rae on December 2, 2020 at 10:11 pm

    The newest leapard gecko my daughter named it Bean. A week ago I finally got my dream gecko which is a captive-bred Tokay, I still need a name for her/ him.

  38. Alex. B on December 2, 2020 at 10:14 pm

    Awesome setup! Would you be able to get some clips of her displaying her natural behaviors and upload them as maybe a bonus video? I love seeing that sort of stuff 😂

  39. Mrs B on December 2, 2020 at 10:15 pm

    Fandabidosi build, mate 👍🏼😄

  40. NoEffort on December 2, 2020 at 10:16 pm

    Sadly I don’t have a gecko, however amazing terrarium !

  41. Elodie Lawrence on December 2, 2020 at 10:17 pm

    This set up is absolutely amazing 🦎😃

  42. Tina Preston on December 2, 2020 at 10:18 pm

    Unfortunately we don’t have a leopard gecko. But I do love how you did your set up. We have two breadies. One is named Luna and the other is Rascal.

  43. Kl 1212 on December 2, 2020 at 10:18 pm

    Named mine sinbad because it’s my favorite story from the Arabian nights and there from that area

  44. NORTHERN EXOTICS on December 2, 2020 at 10:21 pm

    What fun names do you give to your leopard gecko? Remember to like the video

  45. 11aaskam on December 2, 2020 at 10:21 pm

    Love it thinking of doing something like this as a side project! My baby leopard gecko is called Fleta and she is adorable
