This cage was built in 2020 so that flying foxes on the Rehabilitation Permit could be kept separately from those on the Exhibition Permit. It is the same design from the same company as the larger cage, but smaller. It measures 10.5m long, 6m wide and 3.5m high.
The cage is still waiting to have new netting installed. It was held up for many months by Covid as it was being sourced from China. We will be using the smaller feeding area in the big cage for bats housed in this new cage, but enlarging it to 3 metres by 4 metres.
