sounds neat, are you going to line the sides with brick and pour concrete for the floor? just make sure they can't squeeze though and place and dig out or you probably won't see them again. I intend to use pond liner stapled to 2"x12" wood frame with some slack left in the liner to create a small pond, that way on the land part they can only dig down as deep as the soil I put on top of the liner, which I plan on only having a soil depth of 4-6" that way I can dig them up and put them in the basement for winter. The small pond will have a small filter box with a small low volume pump so as to not suck up eggs yet keep the water quality up along with periodic partial water changes, also the pond will be surrounded by small rocks to act as a buffer so the soil won't be tracked into the pond so much, and stocked with pond plants. Also this will be located on the northeast side of the house so it will only recieve a few hours of morning sun and stay cool. Anyway, good luck with your habitat I hope it works out for you and take lots of pictures to share.
