So, I'm pretty sure my wife is gonna kill me. I recently purchased a brown mountain tortoise but maybe she will understand when she sees em.
So my question is aimed at the local Pennsylvania residents.
If I make it to the winter time, could I see some indoor mountain tortoise enclosures.
Hell be outside for summer and such. Just looking for some inspiration
Thanks

Congratulations on your new Mee, Need to know size of your new guy to help you.

I live in NE Ohio and have had my Mee's for 10 years, all the way from 1 and 2 year olds to egg producing adults. You have to be dedicated in order to make it work. Their winter quarters takes up one full half of my basement.

He is adorable... I can’t offer you any advise on the mountain tortoises though.. I have Sulcatas... I bet your Wife loves him already:) Out of all my pets, I think my husband loves the torts the most... and he doesn’t like any of them[emoji16]
