    I've talked about it a lot and haven't really gotten to do it, but now I have a good chance to get the tegu outdoors this summer. Down here in Alabama we have a really nice environment for the tegu. We had some turkeys that lived outdoors and don't have them anymore and now are left with this enclosure. Of course it's In no condition for a tegu right now, chicken wire, not floor, etc. But I was wondering if any of you think it's of use? Or should instant from scratch? The frame is made of 1x6s and I don't know if that's good enough to keep a tegu in. Ours in particular is destructive so I may just start new anyway[​IMG]

    6x6x3 feet. I have some panels to make it a 12x6x3 though, and could build a base for more height.

    If it's sturdy and easy for you to retrieve tegu, looks good to me. For ease on your part, might considet a walk-in.

    Looks fine look at underground reptiles outdoor enclosure video looks about the same. Only
    Thing to consider is having part of it covered for shade and maybe make it dig proof so they can't dig out

    I'm thinking I'll build a base under it to provide some shade and enough high for me to walk in. Gonna cover the whole thing in a layer of welded wire as well because I know he'll tire through chicken wire.
