What size tubs are they?
Yes click clacks and hat hie cages count
Gday Andy, umm without actually measuring them they would be about 350mm long, 270w and about 250 h. Built these racks years ago, great for all types. they have dowell perches as well for the morelia. But the bhp grow out of them pretty quick so they then go into bigger tubs that hold them till 2yr old.
Couple of older pics, still using the same tanks thou.
Been washing your bhp in golden syrup again Rob?
theres definatly a re-occurring theme with these cages hey.
cement, yeah seems to be a re-occurring thing these days. I remeber years ago when i started posting pics of the way i kept my snakes and got bagged for it. lol. Now it seems everyone is on to it. lol. Only way to keep snakes imo.
Bit of yellow spray paint does wonders for bhps.
Haha, I know because thats where I stole my design from!
I don't know that you got bagged....just the sheer simplicity kept going over someones head and they seemed to refuse to allow themself to understand lol!
Good to see other people put dividers in their enclosures. I was starting to think I was strange but it makes sense to me. Keeps one side cooler and the other is easier to heat.
One of my enclosures. Heated with a heat cord under tile on the top left shelf. Ignore the occupant. He didn't read the species description about being terrestrial and spends a good deal of time trying to hang from the ceiling.
Dimensions of this one is a standard 4x2x2.
Feel free to send that BHP my way [MENTION=1331]TrueBlue[/MENTION] should it ever become too hard to care for.
Nah your not strange, ive been doing it for well over 20 years and never had a problem.
[MENTION=1331]TrueBlue[/MENTION]: That BHP in the last photo you posted is stunning! I can't say I really see many caramel/jet-black animals like that. Is that a regional specific animal or anything like that?
I apologise for lack of enclosure relevance
That bummble bee bhp in the pic got passed on to someone else a few years back, it then ended up being stolen.
RedFox your cages look amazing, lots of detail, were those ledges hard to make
Update on mine.. Only centre door, lights and vents to go!!
(sorry, on my ipad the pics weren't upside down..)
looks good [MENTION=30989]ssnakeboyy[/MENTION]
Ok just because I want to show it off some more...
Thanks and no they were simple and not all that time consuming. The horizontal part is just a spare bit of melamine I turned into a shelf with a heat cord routed into it and a tile on top. The vertical pillars are thin bits of pine.
I then tore apart a broccoli box with my fingers into uneven shapes and stuck it on, then used some expanda foam to fill gaps. I then rendered over with acrylic render mixed with some coloured oxide. When the rendering was done I used some acrylic paints to get rid of the boring one tone look and then sealed with pond sealer.
All up the enclosure structure took me around 3 hrs to build. Internals took 4 days with most of that being drying time.
The rest of my animals homes are fairly plain and boring.
