Here is the outdoor enclosure for my tegus. About 90% of the cage is from things that were lying around the yard. It is a 6ft x 6ft x 6ft.
This was a place that the previous house owners used for just throwing yard items. I cleared it all out added 3 ft of soil to cover the cement floor, bolted a 6x6 section of dog run fencing to the opening in front and left the top open. I used an old 5ft cooler without a lid for a water dish and added rocks into it to raise the flooring of the water dish to make it easy for the lizards to get in and out. I used an old 5 ft watering trough and laid it on its side to act as a large hide and used an old gardening box to create a hide for the female to nest. I cut holes large enough for only the female and added a sand/soil mix into the box. I took apart the tegus old indoor cage and used the duel light fixture and mounted it above the metal hide to provide a basking spot during colder times and wired in a pond pump and filter for the water dish. Finally I ran PVC piping from the top of the cage with a on off valve and capped it off with an adjustable sprinkler head. I added a palm tree, some branches and rocks. I access the enclosure from above.
Hope you like it.
