Thread: A new home

    I posted these images in another thread as a bug test. I am reposting them here since they can be of some interest to some.

    The pictures are of the construction of a new cage in my garden. Dimensions are 20ft wide, 13ft deep and 16ft high (6x4x5m). I am trying to upgrade all my animals to homes that keeps Zoo standard or better. I tried to trim the tree as little as possible to allow for a lot of climbing, to provide shade and to allow the tree to regrow it lost lims quuickly. The cage also feature a small 4x4 ft, 1 ft deep tiled water hole. Is to keep clean but big enough to smaller animals to take a bath in.

    The cage has since this point been planted with various low plants and wines including the very fast growing luffa sponge. Orchids have been secured to the tree.

    The cage has been designed to be able to successfully house a wide array of different animals but is at the moment home to my raccoon.

    I will get up to date pictures as soon as i can. (the cage is in my future house, not my present one.)

    Thought I would add a shot that shows the little pond as well. It has since been tiled.

    Looks like a great project

    Those titles look nice enough to be used in a house !
    If you take your time to do the research FIRST, you can successfully set-up and keep ANY type of aquarium with ease.

    And you have a job at the same time as looking after these animals? Wow! What a menagerie! Any chance of a few photos of them all? Although I'm assuming you don't have a "family" photo of them all lined up

    They all look the picture of health, and a credit to your care no doubt. Nice! The great dane looks very sweet.
