    Hi I just bought a zoo zone 2 cage for my Syrian. I’m unsure what mesh to buy and also how to apply this :)

    Hi :) I got my mesh from Wilko, you can get it in most shops like B&Q and Wickes etc. if you're in the UK, and you can also order online. For the zoo zone 2, I'd personally just cut a rectangle of mesh (you'll need to measure this to get the right size), sand down the edges or put duct tape around them to prevent from cutting yourself, and securing it to the top with zip locks. There are other ways to do it too, it's quite easy to figure out how to do it when you're in the process. Good luck!

    No problem! I used to use 1/2 inch mesh which is fine, but I'm now using 1 cm mesh and it's much less flimsy. I recommend 1 cm mesh or 1/4 inch mesh. 1/2 inch is fine too though!

    Yes, you can do! Any way really - I'm not sure exactly when the top of the zoo zone 2 looks like but it should be simple enough to secure.
