Oh really? Wow, I was just assuming, since RES do. I actually have the caresheet from ATP bookmarked haha. It has a lot of good info.

Thanks for the info.

thanks.

I'm going to get a large rubbermaid bin and set it up so that she can chill out on the deck on nice days. i just can't get with the idea of her being outside permanently, but for now, a rubbermaid outside, and her habitat inside will do..right?

Ornates are a little harder to take care of than Easterns or Three Toed. Check out this site and it should help out with her set up. This is Nora , my Ornate. I think she is over thirty years old. She is outside in a pen now, but I had to keep her inside for one winter, because my yard was being fixed.

No way! Is that really your terrarium? If so kudos on the setup, I love seeing people with the same focus when building an enclosure for there herps. Any pics of the whole setup? I'd love to see them.
