    Pics as promised of a couple "tweaks" made to enclosures.


    The little rubber "foot" on the left wasn't jacking the enclosure up far enough to allow adequate breathing room - and the heat softened the adhesive to they kind of slid around. Took a gluegun and plopped on some cheap drawer handles instead - worked like a charm.

    For Kali's more sterile environment while tending her "belly button" I needed to provide a heat baffle to keep the floor temps from getting too high, since Bloods really dig burrowing she would work her way under anything. used this plastic pegboard cut flush with the bottom and overlaid with paper towels - no longer any danger of her getting that lil belly in direct contact with the floor. Bottom pictured.


    and here it is laying flush in her freshly cleaned home (hence the water droplets from the final rinse)

    Hey where did you get that pegboard and does it come with the holes a little smaller? Nanners is Captain Burrow and sometimes it drives me bonkers something like that would be fantastic for his enclosure but like I said with the holes a little smaller.

    Got that at Lowe's (Home Depo et al) - you will be hard pressed to find the holes either smaller or spaced at any other intervals as it is made to fit standard pegboard hooks, attachments etc. They look a lot bigger than they are (9/32" ARGH metric NOW PLEASE!!) - no way you could get, say a pencil through there.
