how well can they climb?

Postby beckymason » Sat Sep 02, 2017 6:06 pm

hi. my daughter has a blue tongue and we just made an out door enclosure from an old guinea pig cage. i put chicken wire around the outside but not on top. my question is, do you think they can climb up and escape through the top?
il add a picture.
its really only designed to be used while we are around. so if the weather is bad she wouldnt be in there,.
thanks in advance

They are better climbers than you'd expect....

The biggest risk is something nasty getting in with them and killing them .

My bub can climb 2 - 3 foot, if she can't just slip through the cracks. But no tail, so weight difference.

My older girl can too, but she is like 1 - 1 1/2 foot long.

As they grow, Bluetongues lose some ability to climb due to their increased weight, but they are still impressive and deceptive. I would 100% roof it.
