    little robo Nuri got out last night no idea how, id gone to bed and my OH had to come and wake me up. took ages for us to catch her becase she had gotten behind and under the bookcase. Then this morning when i went to clean her cage she dived out the cage and ran off behind the lizards vivs when i was getting her into the ball. Again it took us ages to get her out. she has now earned the nick name little s*** as im gonna have to go out and buy another cage for her. im not sure how she got out the first time as i was very carful with her cage, making sure there was no gaps. i wont be able to take my eyes of her for a second, shes a right little escape artist, bless her. at least iv been doing some exersize. i have been getting lazy. lol

    its rotastak. i had two kidney shaped tanks and a round room but i put nothing next to the bars in the round room for her to stand on to climb through those bars. iv now taken the round room off and to make sure enough air is going in iv put some tubes coming out the top of the tanks, too long for her to climb up, if she could even get up there anyways.

    thinking of getting another tank or rody type cage. theres only my beardies that have been behaving lately.

    one of the others is in a threefoot tank thats two foot deep so i havnt put a lid on it. i brought the stuff to do it but changed my mind because she cant get out. wouldnt mind another one. been looking on ebay and preloved. lol. she hasnt escaped again since but id feel better changing the cage though. wont have to check on her every hour or so. lol just glad we dont have a cat yet.

    I never had any probs with her getting out but she always has been jumpy since I had her. She would always get out and go on the floor and we would have to grab her before she ran off. We had her in a plastic box tank which she couldn't get out of. Glad you found her though :)
