    Hi guys,
    As the title says, I'm looking for ideas and pictures for an outside safe area for my Blue Tongue to catch some rays. I will of course add a shade area, and will be keeping an eye on him while he's out there.

    I've had a look on the net/google and most/all of them are very big, since he won't be living in it full time I'm looking for perhaps a smaller version.


    All ideas welcome :D

    I currently have mine in a garden bed from Bunnings with wire mesh underneath and overhead. The mesh on the bottom doesn't affect them as I have a garden planted in there. Mine are in the bigger version but you can pick up little garden beds that are 3' x 3' which sounds like it would be fine for yours :)

    Hi there,
    I use rabbit hutches for my 3 blueys, and they absolutely love it!
    I picked up these 2 silver cages up from a friend who didn't want them anymore, And I have seen similar cages at Bunnings a number of times. And for pretty good prices!
    My only advice is, whatever you use, make sure you have a secure bottom! I have had many search and rescue missions due to digging blue tongues!

    And I apologise for my poor quality photos. P1010406.JPG P1010410.JPG P1010411.JPG
    Cheers all! Nathan.

    Do you guys use these as permanent enclosures or just for a few hours during the day?

    Does anyone else use rabbit hutches/runs to keep blueys/bobtails outdoors?
