    Hello,
    I am new and am working on a multi level enclosure for a Tegu for my daughter (kind of actually for me haha) and have some questions. The entire 8 x 4 enclosure will be coated in pond shield to protect the wood from the humidity but i have a six foot long ramp going up 20 inches and with the pond shield epoxy coating it will be too slick for the tegu to climb. I want to keep it nice looking so i dont want to just lay a rubber mat down over it or anything silly like that. I have read in a few place that people have used truck bed liner and that can have more texture and "gription" but i was thinking i would ask the tegu people for some thoughts.
    Thanks

    I use outdoor carpet, which is available in green and brown and offers a somewhat natural look. You can even get artificial grass that is more realistic looking.
