Very, very nice! I think it's going to become quite a popular spot. It looks way better than that other "reptile shop" at that other garden centre. :twisted:

I'm going to share this on our FB page, if you don't mind. Well done, Bjorn.

It looks fantastic! I'm really excited to see how the bioactive substrate works out. I've read a bit about it and it's seems like a great system. Wishing you the best of luck on your venture, i'll definitely be bringing the kids there was it's ready.

Thanks for all the nice comments!

Now you all have a good idea of what it will look like but there has still been more changes since. There are forever delays and I want to give the reptiles some time to settle so we looking at opening in 2 weeks. Was hoping for this weekend but I dont want to push it as it's not something to be rushed.

There will forever be loads of fine tuning to be done and working 7 days a week is going to be hard but it should be well worht all the effort. We are getting loads of interest from people visiting Stodels and they cant wait for the opening.

@a&M Ball Pythons, Thanks for the link.
Regards
Bjorn

Beautiful park you have there would have loved to go and visit there, will make a point of it if I am ever in that area. It has always been a dream of mine to have a park like that of my own so hopefully one day I can have mine up here in gauteng. All the best with your park

Thanks so much. You must pop in when you in the area.

All the best and hope you make your dream happen.

UPDATE- I have had aircon and all installed and hopefully have power from now on. There is some testing to be done and I hope to be opening this weekend.

Looking awesome - you must take a walk through video and put it on youtube
