Well here's mine. I did mine with landscaping timbers. We have no problem with racoons or any other predators in Albuquerque so no need for a lid for my enclosure. I'm not sure it would be doable for my enclosure anyway seeing as I have Crepe Myrtle and a polmogranite bush in there. I also put in an Arbor so that some honeysuckle and grape vines can grow on it.

I have really piled on the fall leaves in there and planted quite a number of bulbs. I've only seen my two mature males up on the warmest days here lately. I cant wait until spring to see how well my 8 desert ornates have fared through their first winther in their new enclosure.







Here's how it started out early last spring.



And it was much more grown and lush than this by the end of the season.
