    Pretty girl.
    Have you got an open floor on that enclosure Murph?
    I hope you have a guard sunk into the ground if so. It wouldn't take her long to tunnel out otherwise.

    The cages I have in my outdoor enclosures are bolted to the fence off the ground 400mm (bloody toads) and the cage is broken up into 4 sections of welded mesh this the rest of the cage I move the fake grass from 3 of the sections about once a fortnight to allow sunshine to get to the real grass underneath the cages to allow growth and to break up the same ol display in her enclourse same goes for the hollows and climbing branches I change them all the time.. New things to explore (destroy) & bask on.. I find that all my monitors are out and around more rather than tucked away..
    But i am always up for suggestions ...

    That is impressive looking fake grass. With the shadowing I couldn't pick it to be artificial.

    Thank you. There are bricks in there cause' he had a habit of digging under the fake grass (Seems like it's just loose enough for him to get under) that's under the coir peat and I'd keep thinking he'd gotten out.

    Not sure he'd do that anymore though since he's calmed down a lot. But even so I'd still prefer to have the bricks there either way just in case.
