In Reply to: A fencing experiment that did NOT work, keep the receipts!.. posted by oregonlizardlady on May 03, 2003 at 15:54:03:
The mere fact that the Sulcata can "see" through the "wooden bars" will tempt him to push through.
By erecting metal posts will maybe hold back his "push" but you are going to tease him to insanity.
Consider yourself in a yard with a "see though" gate, wouldn't you try to get through it?
:Maybe try getting some metal fence posts and sinking them way into the ground (on the outside next to the cinder blocks) so he cant just push them over?????? Looks nice if you could keep him from pushing them over.
::Well, these can go back to Home Depot as he did what I pretty
::much expected - walked straight through them and toppled
::and shoved the whole thing away. All righty then. Alas the
::joy of large tortoises. (large?, he's still medium). I think
::we're going to try just straight 2X12 boards like he has on
::the inside border of his pen.
