The design is thought to be optimal
after considering: ringtail needs versus safety versus size versus weight.

Base: 1.30 x 1.30 m (1.7 sqm), 1.84 m height
(the mesh comes in 920 mm width)

Timber and mesh (medium bird wire) - more natural environment, easier to climb and easier to construct too. Sides and door are two timber frames each with mesh in between.

Each part can be carried by a single person (not recommended for safety reasons though).
The cage can be transported in the back of a pick up (ute).

Ease of set up
The four frames are hooked up with pad bolts and eye screws -
two pairs of those for each corner - secured with cable ties.

The cage is based on a socket grid.
A second grid fits exactly within the for side frames of the cage.
Both grids together make the cage fairly predator (and escape) proof. Possible down hill water can flow underneath the cage.

Both parts of the roof can be opened (up to 200 mm)

A 'shelf' to hold a nest box, walkways made from branches and connected with cable ties plus one or several (leaf) food containers and water bowls

Dense shade cloth around the cage (covering the medium/upper part of the cage) for 'privacy' and lower stress levels if a predator should visit
