    You have a pretty good enclosure but i reckon you should definitely get a better camera so you can show off your work a little better. lol

    Pretty nice looking set up. Although jungles prefer height than width.
    Is that a double 4 footer? Wanting one of those, lol.

    Thanks , yeah mate i used google sketch to draw it up and got most of the material from bunnings .
    There is 2 enclosures screwed together , i want to make some that are 3ft wide by 5ft high and 2ft deep for them when they get bigger , but im also thinking about doing a 4x2x2ft but standing it up on the end so its 4ft high .

    i had big branches screwed through the sides for a few weeks while i had some southwesterns in them , but i used smaller branches this time and had a bit more time so i used screw in rings on the branches and screwed some hooks into the walls .

    You can do what i did , but use tubs instead of what i used . get the right size tub you want to use for a hide and then find some aluminium that will fit over the lip off the tub and the screw head . drill a small hole through both sides of the ally than do 1 side with a bigger drill bit ( to fit the screw head in) .

    cheers nico

    Sorry Nico, i've managed to confuse you....... the 2nd pic in post #14 looks like a round tub somehow mounted to a flat steel plate (with a hole cut in it) thats what i was questioning, i've seen the tubs in rails before, like you say the phone camera isn't the best..... but i'm sure your diagram has helped explain it to those that are also confused LOL

    oh i get what you mean , i made it from some poly pipe (315mm) welded a end cap to the bit of pipe and then welded some poly sheet (not steel) to the other end , its like a heavy duty storage tub (5mm min wall thickness) and its all made from poly .
