Snake Proof Joey Enclosure

Each wet season we have problems with snakes, mainly Olive Pythons. They will sneak up on a Joey in its pouch and grab them by the head. Then a coil is swiftly wrapped around the body to kill the animal. They are then swallowed whole. This takes seconds to happen and occurs at night. I decided to build a enclosure so the Joey's were safe at night. They are closed in this night enclosure at 6:00 PM for their safety. But during the day they are free to run around and socialize with other older Macropods.They run and play like children.
