    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.

    No pics today (will take some tomorrow) but just thought I'd update...

    I ran out of Mice and had some spare chicks so I thought I'd chuck one in and see how Turok handled it. Struggled a bit but ended up getting it down. He's 6 months old now. Will cut him back to feeding every second day from now on, in a few days.
    Would there be any bad side effects if I gave him purely chicks as a whole food item from now on (as opposed to Mice)? I'm only asking since he already gets cut up chicken necks. But also he would still get Woodies and the occasional Huntsman, Centipede, Whatever else I end up finding that he could have.

    Ended up getting him a bigger water bowl so he can actually soak / submerge his whole body in it. His skin looks so much better and his colours pop way more.

    I can gently stoke his back and tail. Sometimes it's even more of a pat with my whole hand and it doesn't seem to bother him (as in, no hissing or tail whipping).
    Wondering if I should try and pick him up or if that'll just set all my progress back?

    I’d let him come to you. Place your hand in front of him and let him taste you and he may climb onto your hand.

    I’m of the idea that everything is to be on their terms.... he’ll be more comfortable if it’s his decision to climb up onto you, rather than a big pink hand coming in over the top of him.

    And post pictures! There hasn’t been enough lately!
