    :)Just got this today for my CWD. It's 75x36x23 inches. Needs some cleaning, and work in general, as it was an open-air outdoor cage. Since it's now going to be indoors, I'll be attaching removable panels to the sides and front to help maintain heat and humidity. It's weeks away from habitation, but I started working on it tonight, cleaning, staining/sealing wood, cutting panels, etc.

    Can't wait to get it done! I'll get more pics up when I can.

    Yeah, since it was outdoors, it needs some cleaning, and staining/waterproofing. Work is going fast, but it'll still be weeks before all the fumes clear out enough to satisfy me.

    I might consider getting a few more CWD's down the line. I'd love to get a male, but i don't want breeding - the cage is dividable though, so it might be workable. Otherwise i'd stick with another female. Right now I have one female, and now that she's out of 'rehab' i wanted to get her into a bigger enclosure. The cage she is in is small, a 40 gallon tupperware w/ screen lid. It's time for an upgrade.

    Got a lovely dark stain for the wood to cover the weathering it's had. Found a treefrog on the cage after staining - unharmed, after the cage had been moved around quite a bit (into a van, up three flights of stairs, stained, vacuumed, etc)

    Awww poor little frog. FYI its probably not going to make it though. The fumes will get him eventually. They don't do good with that sort of stuff.

    I would stick with one WD, Its about the right size for one.

    One it is - she can be an only child, cause that's how I treat all my animals.

    I feel bad for the poor froggy! He was very active when we found him, we had a darned fun time trying to catch him. After we got him, I put him in a small clean tank briefly and misted him with dechlorinated water. let him go the next morning, and he seemed fine.
