My Red Foot Tortoise keeps escaping it’s outdoor enclosure, so I am planning on upgrading it in the near future. Does anyone have any suggestions for the best types of fencing to use for the cage? We previously used plywood screwed to stakes in the ground, and my tortoise eventually just tore through it so it’s got to be something pretty strong.

Well if yours is lime Houdini owned by maggie3fan then I would suggest a concrete footer to prevent the under escape. I would then use 6 courses of block mortared together to prevent the through. Then a top cap that extends at lest 6 inches inside to prevent the over. Basically a rectangle with one long side removed. Good luck! Apparently when reds go bad that do it in a big way
