    Hi all,

    Its been a while a since I last logged in. Last time I posted anything here I had a 60x60x45cm Exoterra cage housing two juvenile water dragons. Since then I have completed a build 120x60x60cm giving my water dragons a much better life and an overall satisfaction of building something to support life.

    Here are my pictures. All built by myself from scratch. The pictures start after I have constructed the frame and when I am painting the enclosure. let me know if you want more info, happy to help share the design plans.

    Next steps are to complete the rockwall design. That is the most tricky part of the build. Will keep everyone updated :)

    thanks for viewing
