Bespoke Marmoset Enclosure
We were very excited when we were asked to build a bespoke Marmoset enclosure in December last year. Our customer told us that he’d owned the tiny monkeys when he was younger and he had decided to have some more again. He had his own ideas about modifying our Leighton aviary
to make it suitable and we were only happy to oblige.
The structure measured 10ft6in x 6ft in total and comprised of an enclosed housing/security entrance and a mesh run. The housing section was insulated with wipe clean walls and floor, and had a sliding hatch over the hole to the run. The run had 14 gauge 25mm x 25mm mesh on the inside, as well as a second outer layer of 6mm x 6mm rodent mesh. The opening from the housing to the run had a shelf on either side, and an opening hatch with internal feeding shelf was added to the run section.
I gave the condition to our customer that I expect photos of the monkeys in their new home once settled in!
