"I haven't had mine long but my female hasn't destroyed it yet. My crocs love to destroy things so anything that last longer then 2 weeks is success in my book lol."

I know where you're coming from! My male destroys things accidentally, through size and blunder, but my little female destroys things intentionally, through persistence. Every now and then, usually after laying but occasionally before, she'll become obsessed with something near her nest site that she feels shouldn't be there. It's hormone and instinct fuelled behaviour, so nothing can stop it. As I mentioned in another post, last year she decided to obsess about the conduit protecting the heat pad, thermostat and thermometer cords. She spent a full day robotically scratching at, and then biting, it. You can't imagine how annoying the repetitive noise of these activities was for me as I tried to work at my computer, which is right next to the enclosure.

What you don't want is for the female to dig a nest hole down to where the cords enter the Kane mat and decide that cord shouldn't be there, so make sure it is protected. I've got conduit going right down to my home made heat pad.
