Hey I was wondering if I could use plastic for a naturalistic setup? You need photos? Here:Image

Your talking about a nest or outworld? Also is it hard like acrylic or soft and squishy plastic?
Proverbs 6:6-8

Go to the ant, you sluggard;
consider its ways and be wise!
It has no commander,
no overseer or ruler,
yet it stores its provisions in summer
and gathers its food at harvest.

Both dirt/ substrate in the bottom and out world on the top! It is a little squishy but not so bad.
