Hi there
I am planning to put a mesh wire under the soil in the entire outdoor enclosure.

How much should be the depth of soil above the mesh wire?

Thank you

Is this just for hatchlings Sabina or for when they are older too? Either way, for hermanns six to eight inches should be plenty as they don't burrow as such. If just for babies then 3-4 inches should be fine ;)
