New portable Aldabra sunning tub
I got a 8’ diameter, 2’ deep tub from tractor supply, built an 8x8 platform out of treated 2x6, put 6 castor wheels on it, covered with 1/4” pvc sheet. So the whole thing is waterproof. It has a drain plug in it that I removed, I put some large rocks and gravel around the inside of the drain opening, covered the bottom with 6-8” of cypress mulch. I figured I could leave it out in the rain if I needed to , or roll it in my shop. The Aldabras are growing fast and I am working on a 16 x 60 ‘ outdoor enclosure for them now. (which is also temporary) 🙄😎🐢🐢🐢

I like how it's movable. That should be fun for them! :)

I have been carrying Jackson and General in a dog carrier, now they are getting too big to fit through the hole , so I came up this to transport them from indoor enclosure to sunning tub
