My homemade enclosure for my Russian tortoise

I got two tables from IKEA and used wire cutters to cut holes in both tables. I then rigged a tunnel between both tables so he's loads of space to roam.

      You might want to look over our care sheet, it seems like there are some improvements that could be made to your enclosure. But its a nice looking tort!

      Hi thank you for liking my wee tortoise. I don't think the photos do it justice as he can walk through a large tunnel and the other enclosure he then gets to has much more room for him to roam around. I placed 2 hides in the enclosure with the heat and uv lamp and the other enclosure has hides but no heat lamp or uv light. He usually spends most of his time in the heated section in his hide. It would appear he has certain times of the day where he's very active and roams around searching for food. I like to leave the food all over both enclosures as feel this mimics nature as I'm sure in the wild they wouldn't find a plate of food all cut up for them.
