Even though it was 103 degrees out today in Texas, I decided to start work on another chuckwalla cage. Currently there are two cages...just working on adding in a 3rd (along with building up the sides and adding a roof). Last winter the chucks did great but the PVC frame with bird netting and plastic didn't hold up to our strong winds..... note from experience: Bird netting collapsed into cage and worked like a gill net in the ocean... had to cut the chuckwallas out of it--- use it with caution. Anyways- I'll stop my rambling. I'll make sure to post more pics as the cage progresses--- same basic style I always use (you can find pics & info on my website--- and a link to the originator's site with step-by-step building info...Gus/Rio Bravo Reptiles is amazing).

Cheers,
Graham
