@stojanovski92113 I have no lighting for them, they get what they need from the sun. They stay in the garage in a 4 ft x 8 ft plywood box that I built with heat only in the winter. They have the run of the whole backyard and I leave the garage cracked so they can go in and out of their box. They are outside alot during the winter as well because of where I live. I have sphagnum moss that I buy in bulk from lowes as a substrate. They eat grass, hibiscus, mazuri, a variety af home grown greens, dog poop, cat poop, lots of fruit. I have 2 females and 2 males and I get a ton of fertile eggs from them. What state do you live in, I think one of the most important things is alot of space and alot of outdoor time. I leave mine alone and let them be torts. My cats and dogs are not on any kind of medication that will harm the torts if they eat the poop...............So what state do you live in
I live in Michigan. I let my tortoises outside when it's nice out. I have them in a 6X4 tortoise table now, but they need something bigger. They are starting to pyramid a bid & I think it's due to over feeding on my end. They are all pretty healthy. I use a mvb & have a cooler & humid/hotter side for them. They love sitting under the mvb during the day & will roam around to the humid side. And they always go to bed about 7ish! I love them!!!
