    Mini helmet case? It's a great size. I very much like the interior design!

    Construction-wise I worry that there may not be adequate ventilation. I ended up adding a great number of holes after mine was a stagnant bog.it will help with convenience & containment to cut the lid about 1/3 of the way up & install a hinge. @CyclingSam has a tutorial:



    Nicely done!

    Here is a little more in-depth tutorial I did if you are interested. These are pretty self explanatory though. making it so the lid can open freely is the only tricky part.

    Arboreal

    Here is my second arboreal enclosure based on a Hobby Lobby display case (5.5 x 6.5 x 8.5). This one has the same basic build as the first, only with more air holes, an extra vine, and a different water dish.

    It is going to house an avic which is arriving today.

    This is my second terrestrial "show case" enclosure.

    It's based on a Hobby Lobby mini helmet display case (5.5 x 6.5 x 8.5) with about 3" of substrate. There is a lot of moss, parts of 4 different plants from Hobby Lobby, and underneath the plants is a cork bark hide.

    This was built for an M robustum. It wasn't suitable for that fossorial species, so I took the plants out and added more substrate. But I didn't want to let this work go to waste.

    Terrestrial with leaf litter
    Heterometrus petersii
    Started experimenting with putting leaf litter on the substrate to better simulate a forest floor.
