    I have two 8mth old pilbara BHPs in the 6ft enclosures (if u look closely you will spot the male smashing a rat in the bottom one) and two yearling albino darwins in the two 4ft ones connected and there is a young darwin het in the other

    Ill put up some pics when they are all out and about

    Got the glass from sydney glass its 4mm toughened float glass with polished edges . Put it in myself really simple to do just with "cowdroy plastic track " fix the track to the top and bottom rails of enclosures then the glass just slips in because the top track is made about 5mm deeper so the glass can be lifted in and out . Make sense ?
