    Please forgive my ignorance, but what species is that? I can't see any markings from this view.

    I saw this technique of using this type of enclosure upside down with the lid on the bottom yesterday and thought it was brilliant for an arboreal species. Thanks for another example of how to do it.

    What is the little black button type thing on the top?

    It’s a avic sp Colombia. The button thing is a stopper for an opening so I can throw some feeders or shoot some water without having to open the bottom of the enclosure.

    I wish more enclosures came with feeding ports. The benefits are obvious. I did a similar one myself but it's vacant for now.

    I rehoused the Versicolor in an ExoTerra nano at a later time.

    That enclosure started life as a Jamie's juvenile enclosure.

    Nice. How did you make your hole? I like the cork.

    I used a 1 inch spade type of drill bit and a cordless drill. After that I placed a penny on top of the cork I stuck in.

    The penny provides just enough clearance for the bracket to rotate aside.

    Then I set the L locking bracket in place on top of the penny against the side. After marking the holes, I used a Dremel to put a hole in for the screw.
