Housing Authority...time to make shelters for the Rhinoderma, and to do this we use coconuts. First we drill them to drain the milk.
Andy makes the supreme sacrifice and helps get rid of the coconut milk...delicious!
How to cut these things? Nope, a table saw won't work.
Next, it's time to put in doors.
Cut, drilled, and ready to dry in the sun so the coconut meat can be popped out easily, then on to the terrariums.
All the cutting and drilling drew the attention of a lizard (Liolaemus tenuis) living by the woodshop.
The trek to the woodshop took us past some interesting zoo inhabitants like this Degu (Octodon degu).
And the noise even woke up a nocturnal Chinchilla.
Time to wire and install the fluorescent lights.
This is when tight quarters require SMALL hands!
Finally the lights are done!
Even the Blue-and-yellow Macaw likes the look of things.
If only we had more access to the internet......
More on the way….
