Default Hot weather shade

Hi, not been on in a long time but the upcoming weather forecast (38c lol) prompted me to share this. Iíve started using camouflage netting over my outdoor enclosures when its seriously hot. Its great because it presents dappled sunlight still whilst keeping the glaring sun off, like heavy vegetation in the wild.

Stuff like this, https://amzn.eu/d/3VFmvh8

If youíve got an outdoor enclosure in full sun, might be useful. Its easy to fit and remove when it cools down a bit.
