My six-year-old leopard tortoise is ready to move outside. I need help on ideas with housing and any information on tortoises living outside. She’s been living inside ever since I got her, which was from a hatchling. What kind the house or shelter do you use? Do you put fans and heaters in these houses? What kind of water tubs do you use? Thank you for your help! I live in Florida so humidity is perfect for them but I worry about overheating and rain storms of course.

You may need heat for winters wired in but with your great weather as long as you have shade, water, and a secure pen you’re golden. Search around there’s a whole stickied thread on outdoor enclosures in the enclosure forum.
