For those of you who don't know, Gus Rentfro has great plans on his website for building lizard cages. Gus and I have been friends for a long time and he's one of the nicest and most knowledgeable reptile guys I know. A true naturalist!

A few weeks back I swang by Brownsville, TX to see him while herping the region. Seeing his outdoor caging spurred me into building some again (I've been saying I was gonna build some for the past few years). I ended up building a double cage.. both sections are 8' x 10' with rockpiles that go 1 1/2'- 2' into the ground. Tops will be made next.

I live in central Texas- our temps are pretty good. During the winter I'll cover the tops with plastic- keeping the chucks dry and a tad warmer. If needed I'm able to run power (for heat lamps) out there.

Natural Sunlight are great for lizards and can't be duplicated indoors!

The 1st cage is filled with 6 CB'12 & CB'11 Puerto Penasco, MX chuckwallas.

The follow up to this messages will have the rest of the pics!!!

Thanks,
