The Rhacarium-featured on Thisoldhouse.com!
This is our pride and joy, a 6x6x2 foot entertainment center and Gecko mansion! It took 2 years to build, due to finding suppliers for all of the materials and finding where we could get the large sized cork rolls and branches we needed. It is constructed out of wood and Plexiglas. A few of it's features include: metal lizard handles, gold latches, 2 waterfalls, a swiveling side tank, and many hidden caves and tunnels that can be viewed from outside without disturbing the animals. In total we have kept 1.2 gargoyle geckos, 1.2 chahouas, 1.1 giant leaftail geckos, and 1.5 crested geckos living in it at the same time. Due to it's size and many options for enrichment we have seen many interesting and amazing behaviors from our geckos. It has been moved 3 times and is currently in it's final resting place where we just recently completed our final modifications and upgrades to it. Since it's original creation we have added more internal lighting, changed the waterfalls, and fixed bumps and bruises that occurred from moving. A common question/concern that we receive about the display is the effect of sound from the TV as well as heat it generates. Behind the television is a large open panel with a fan, which we turn on every time we watch TV(luckily not often!). As for the sound issue, they can't be seen in this photo, but we have a small surround sound setup on the opposite side of the room aimed towards the couch, not the vivarium. While I'm sure the geckos do hear some of the sound from the speakers in the room, there are many layers of Greatstuff in all of the walls that are not Plexiglas which insulates it further from a majority of noises.
We have finally finished all of our upgrades! Photos of the animals and sections of the updated and refinished habitat can be viewed below!
