I purchased a baby water monitor that's around 16 inches and have had it for approximately 3 and a half weeks it's in a temporary cage which is a 40 gallon tank and am trying to build a long term enclosure for it . I believe it is a male and would really appreciate someones help and ideas of design . I was planning on using melamine but figured it wouldnt last long . Since the humidity necessary for the little guy would ruin the melamine . And came to think that plywood may be the best cheap option .
