    I need something cheep that can be used as a hide for my leopard gecko.
    I found some styrofoam, but I want to be sure it's safe before using it

    You can make a diy hide with styrofoam. If you have Pinterest, there's a lot of stuff on there that will help you out. It's cheaper in the long run, after you get all the supplies. You can make multiple hides with the material.

    I actually do have Pinterest I'll take a look at that too

    Just make sure you allow the hides to dry for at least a week. My experience wasn't so great because I was excited and put them in too early. The heat from the hot side humidified the paint

    Another cheap option is to use rubber maid sandwich containers. I spray paint them a tan paint and cut a hole with soilder iron allow it to dry for 24 hours. Cheap, simple, and works
