    Indoor greenhouse for tortoise

    I think that is a great idea and is used lots in the UK. I would definitely add something so that the Tort cant see out otherwise it may end up ripping the plastic with its claws. Maybe a wooden border around the inside. The biggest issue in the UK when they are outside is, they get too damn...

    My outside enclosure!

    You can still build something great for your tortoise in the UK. I’m in the UK and I have a large outdoor enclosure, you just need either a small heated box or some kind of cold frame. My cold frame was in the corner of the enclosure that got the first sun and it was remarkably hot inside.

    The Best Way To Raise A Sulcata, Leopard, Or Star Tortoise

    The Best Way To Raise A Sulcata, Leopard, Or Star Tortoise

    Thanks for taking the time to write this Tom. Here in the UK pretty much all of the people I have spoken to about Sulcatas have told me they need dry conditions. There is a particular website in the UK who I wont mention, but I got barred for merely suggesting that somebody needed to keep...

    Found this little fella!!!

    Yes I agree I think you have a male russian there. His beak looks like it needs trimming too it’s quite overgrown. He looks like he’s been Outside a while, his shell looks worn and rugged. Maybe put some signs up to see if anyone has lost their tortoise.

    Thoughts on new russian burying itself constantly?

    I think they are the same thing. Hopefully someone else will come in and confirm but I’m pretty sure they are the same thing. Tube lights are so much better
