    Can someone show a Herman tortoise enclosure?

    I use an insulated dog house(you can google them) I got from tractor supply. I keep mine indoors in my study. The insulation really helps keep the temps up. And being a dog house it's very large. I cut holes in the roof for the lighting.

    Is my Herrmann's tortoise walking properly?

    New Russian tortoise and would like some help.

    Young torts will sleep 20 hours or more per day. That is not unusual. He looks healthy to me. Enjoy!

    My tortoise Fajita is driving me insane.

    How deep is the soil? She may be wanting to burrow and can't and is getting frustrated. This is the time of year the do it. Make sure your soil is deep enough for her to dig into and fully bury herself if she wants.

    Herman tortoise

    Mine is doing the same thing. I dig him out every 2 or 3 days. Hes only 1 years old. He soaks and eats really well well and then goes and burroughs back down after. Rinse and Repeat. He sleeps about 22 hours a day. I think they do that until around the 5 year mark.

    Where to buy a tortoise enclosure

    Any sturdy bookcase will do. Mine is 6x3 and it perfect for my youngster. Will go bigger in a few years. Just take the shelves out and apply a backing. I cut down a sheet of plywood and nailed to the back of the book case. Then put down a shower curtain liner on the bottom with a staple gun. I...
