    8) today its hot as can be, a heat index of 108f. but i went out this morning before it got too bad to breathe and measure out the enclosure and setup posts to mark all 4 corners, its 7x7 and i am going to measure and cut the wire this evening. should be done in a week or less. i am using chicken wire the stuff that is the round holes, i am going to dig 2 ft. if i can so they can burrow for the winter and so that the female can lay her eggs. any suggestions on setting it up? i am going to make a small pond with sand or dirt around it, probably dirt i think they will eat the sand. but so far thats all i figured out for sure. :)
