I never did post any pics of my completed anole setup. Soon, though. Right now, I'm busting my butt to get a leo set up in a decent enclosure while working 60+ hours a week. I've just been too busy to post here, although I'm going to cut back on my internet presence elsewhere in order to fix that. This is a really cool project, if I might toot my own horn, and maybe someone else can benefit from these posts. Thumbnails link to larger pics.

First up, the bare bones. It's a 20 gallon long with a built in sliding screen top. There's a few pieces of cardboard and styrofoam fitted to the back and sides. More about those in a bit. The alien skull and the rock are two of the furnishings I'm planning on incorporating.

The cardboard/foam is in two pieces for ease in installing. They've been temporarily taped to form the proper corner, then I hit them up with the Great Stuff spray foam.

I decided to embed the alien skull right into the foam.  The next step is carving the foam down to resemble the arid rocky area that leos inhabit in the wild.  This block's cured and ready to carve, but I think I'll just do them both tomorrow.   They'll then get a layer of unsanded tile grout, then paint and sealer.  Look for an update in a few days!
