Weekly Photo Challenge: Movement- How to clean your lizard’s cage

Posted on

Weekly Photo Challenge: Movement

I’m going in!

Yesterday dad and I cleaned out Georgy’s cage. Mum was able to take this fleeting AND movement picture of Georgy coming into her newly designed home.

Cleaning a lizard’s cage takes time. This is how we do it:

  1. Move your lizard into a box, big enough for her to move about in. Make sure she can breathe!
  2. Move EVERYTHING out from their cage and move ALL the old substrate out.
  3. Put your specific substrate that the pet shop guy recommended in a bucket. Use the amount said guy recommended.
  4. Pour two 1.5 litre bottle’s worth of water into the bucket and wait 45 minutes for the substrate to dissolve. (This might be a good time to watch telly!)
  5. Use your (or a neighbour’s) trowel to move the substrate into the cage all over  the bottom of it. Flatten it out with said trowel
  6. Pour some chips (no, not the potato chips, wood chips!) over the substrate. Use trowel again to flatten wood chips.
  7. Put EVERYTHING back into the cage. Make sure you supply a fresh amount of water for the lizard’s water bowl. Now you can put your lizard back into the cage.
  8. For extra fun, put everything back differently for your lizard to explore all over again!
