I would post pics but I don't own a camera and my cell phone is just a phone so I really don't have a way to post pics I doubt I could figure out how to anyways. But I can do my best to discribe my caging. My big out door cage is 20 X 10 X 6. I used 1x1 inch coated wire that I burried 3 feet down and 2 foot in to minimize the risk of burrowing out (although if I ever build another I'll prob dig out the entire area and cement the footpront to gaurantee they can't burrow out). As for water I also use a preformed pond liner(~60gal)for soaking and deficating and just drain and fill each day I also have two reagular waterbowls for drinking in addition I have a misting system built in to the caging. For heat I live in Florida so most of the year they are just out in the sun the cage has an attached 6X10X6 wintering area that i use for when it gets under 60F with RHP and spotlights to keep the temp up.
Hope this helps visualize it a bit better. And _Eric_ I hope you didn't take this personially as it was not ment to be an attack I am just very much in favor of larger caging in most cases and expecially with larger monitors. My thought are if you have to ask if its big enough it prob isn't.
