Temporary enclosure for a week away?

I currently have my 5” red foot in a 40gl terrarium (the largest I could find) but will be away from home for a week. Can I get a smaller enclosure like a rabbit cage to transport and keep him in while gone? Will this likely stress him out? I really don’t want to show up at relatives with an enormous heavy tank.
Searching for a well started Egyptian tortoise hatchlings most searched show scam or out of stock can anyone lead me in the right direction?
Hi
It is definitely her front legs and she seems to be weeing a lot as well
Hi

Can someone help. I have a Sulcato Tortoise, Sully, who I believe is around 4 years old. We live in the UK
Sully has been well up until today, she is suddenly not able to walk we cannot work out if it is her back legs or front legs. She is weeing fine and is also eating, when we place food in front of her
