I have the same problem with Racoons, Opossums, Foxes, and Herons. I built a wooden frame with a 2’ tall plywood wall around the base and covered my little guys encloser with small mesh chicken wire. I put plastic sheeting and bubble wrap over the wire in the cold months. I will try to post a photo of it for you.

Yes, I haven’t had any trouble keeping them out with chicken wire. I am using the smaller mesh wire so that might be a reason. The smaller mesh is stronger but, so far, I’ve not had a problem. I will be posting a link to a couple of vids I’m making about the upgrades I’m working on for my caimans enclosure.
