Always check the surface temperatures of any basking site to ensure it is within the desired recommended Basking Temperature range for the species your housing!


 *PRO TIP-  Having trouble keeping a basking site while maintaining your ambient temperatures? The natural stone surface of the Bask N Hide provides a solution.  This elevated surface combined with the real slate tiles allows for optimal basking conditions. Slate retains heat effectively and aids in the dispersing of heat which warms the surroundings enabling you to reduce the wattage bulb your running to allowing you to achieve the desired ambient temperatures.

Each item is hand-made and due to the nature of the materials there may be minor imperfections present.

Special care should be taken when using heat bulbs inside ANY enclosures, PVC is no exception.  We ALWAYS recommend using a thermostat controller with any heating device/bulb.

We do NOT recommend the use of ceramic heat emitters in PVC enclosures, these get WAY too hot and don't direct the heat down.  Arcadia Deep Heat Projectors are a GREAT alternative to ceramic heat emitters!!  Not only do they project the heat down to your animal without producing visual light, they provide your animals with beneficial Infrared-A and Infrared-B wavelengths.  You can buy Arcadia Deep Heat Projectors from us HERE!


Tools needed:

  • Phillips screwdriver (wrist powered or battery powered- be careful not to overtighten screws!!!- set drill clutch at 2-3)
  • Instructions


  • Coarse thread 1-1/4” #6 screws
  • Black PVC FastCap screw covers
  • PVC body panels
  • Slate Stone Tile(s)

Notes:  All body panels will be marked on the INSIDE surface with A,B,C, and D and arrows that should point toward the matching letter.


  1. Match the labels with arrows pointing toward each other and install screws through the panels with the countersinks into corresponding panel making sure the holes line up. (These have been pre-assembled to make this easier!)
  2. Repeat Step 1 until all panels have been assembled.
    • If you have a Triple-Wide install the brace into the cut slots with arrow pointing up and secure with (2) screws.
  3. Now simply set your Slate Stone Tile(s) into the grooved top and that’s it!

These tiles are REAL stone and highly variable in thickness, appearance and dimensions.  We have hand selected stones for your Bask-N-Hide that fit together well and any gaps or wobble should not affect the functionality of your hide.  If they don’t seem to fit together quite right you might try turning and switching tiles until they fit.  If you want the tiles to be set permanent you can use an adhesive sealant like Lexel, Dap230 or Silicone 1 to “glue” them in.

*Always check the surface temperatures of any basking site to insure it is within the desired recommended Basking Temperature range for the species you are housing!

The Rumors Are True - Toad Ranch Is In Fact The Top of The Food Chain

There's no better hide on the market than Toad Ranch's Bask n' Hide line. I've purchased multiple sizes for my females and they are easy to assemble, come with a sweet personal handwritten note from the workshop staff, and truly surpass any level of engineering by their competitors

Thank you for the review! And our staff is glad you like the notes! We appreciate your business!
