    Puppy pads?

    Hi, I'm the gulf area. We get cold at night too. I have a 9 year old male redfoot tortoise. I don't know what your inside space is like; but I use a pool storage box that I can bring in.

    Winter in Florida help!

    I don't know if this would work for you; but I put my 9 year old RF in a pool box with Florida mulch and a water dish inside our home.

    Did that. He got a toe hold and over he went. Head first of course. Any higher, I'd have to secure them differently . He's very determined and very strong.

    Crazy things my Tortoise does...

    Our redfoot, Lyric, is quite the climber and escape artist. He has managed to get out of his enclosure by climbing and nudging the screen door open if I forget to close it all the way. Torts are very smart. They monitor everything that we do. How else could they have lived so long!?!

    Outdoor hobbit (Sully) hut

    It looks like Monty is blessed to have really great tortoise parents. Phenomenal amount of work that you all did! I saw the other threads about maintaining temperature for him. What is his water source? What will his water source be?
