    Dear all,
    I would like to known if any member here has already try to build up a outside terrarium/enclosure for lezards (as Pogona viticeps)? I live in south east of France. The temperature are up to 80 s during 4 months (June to September).
    How tall should the wall be? What kind of wall material should I use? Does any shelter is necessary for night (with a heater inside)? Does predators can be discard with a mesh?
    What species are you breeding with this kind of enclosure?
    It is difficult to find any litterature in englich about this topic. Pictures are welcomes.
    Thank you in advance.

    I would suggest building a closed in habitat with perhaps an exterior platform sunning area.
    If you put a sunning area on multiple sides, then the reptile could benefit from the moving sun. Or if need be stay out of the wind.
    Use an exterior grade plywood for durability.

    I would use a strong sturdy mesh to deter predators and felines. I would also add a heater just in case night-time temps get a little low.
