    Hi guys ,I am proud to announce I have finally finished my 4x4x2 indoor enclosure for my frillies.This will do them until I make some outdoor enclosures and then it will be their winter home after that. 20180428_150340-1494x2656-747x1328.jpg 20180428_142920-1195x2124.jpg 20180428_142930-1494x2656.jpg

    Looks amazing :) I wish I had the ability to build stuff like that, I might get my uncle to build a new enclosure he does like carpentry and makes stuff for a local shop who sells it and gives him a cut


    Love these guys, so cute but can surprisingly do a good bit of damage with their canine teeth

    I especially like your "fence rail." That's a great touch. Every wild frilly I ever saw as a kid was perched high on a fence post.

    Thanks;that was my intention,I wanted it to look like a natural setting,when you drive through the bush,what do you see? a beardy or a frilly on a post.It actually took me ages to find old wood to make it as I was after an ancient look.
