Default Bramble's new den

My husband and I just finished making Bramble's new den. Took us the evening to make.

He has his cave, food and water on one side, and his tunnel and wheel on the other. Soon I'll need to replace his tunnel with a fleece dig box or something, he's getting too big for his tunnel already.

Let the exploring begin! 😊

I really love it. And I bet your Bramble is so happy. He's pretty spoiled isn't he.😂 So much room. I might even have to do that for Reggie.

Do you have lids for the cage? A hedgehog can easily escape from that if they decide to. Bins also should have holes drilled in the sides for ventilation.

An update on Bramble's den: he has a double layer of holes drilled in each container, and mesh glued to the top of his lids. I've also now replaced his tunnel which was getting too small for him, with a newly finished dig box.

I wanted to do something like this as well, what size/gallon are these? I think they'd be a great size for my guy. And do you have issues with the PVC tunnel moving between the cages?

Sorry about the late response, I didn't receive a notification for some reason.

Each tub's measurement is as follows (measured at the bottom on the narrowest part):

W: 17" / 43cm
L: 23.5" / 60cm
H: 14" / 36cm

We drilled ventilation holes into the tubs at 6" / 15cm and again at 8" / 20cm from the bottom.

The centre of the lids are cut out and insect mesh hot glued to the top of the lids.

The pipe isn't free standing, I'll add photos below. I'm not sure what this pipe would be called but it has caps on each end (had rubber seals in each cap which we took out), so we cut the correct size holes into the tubs, inserted the pipe between the tubs and then put the caps on on the inside of the tubs which keeps the pipe from coming out of the hole. The pipe has a hole in the centre which we covered to keep Bramble in and other things out. We also duct taped the tubs together just to make sure the tubs don't move apart too much and make the caps pop off.

OK, husband is home so I asked him what the pipe is called, it's a 110mm junction box.
