Way fun enclosure...very detailed :p AWESOME on the deal working...lucky little tortoise just make sure to keep and eye on their behavior---pairs are tricky :p

I have one question though, is that a paint tray in the enclosure...which is a great idea, however, it appears that there looks like some residual paint in that paint tray???? Perhaps it is just an angle of the pic???? :p

Good news about the russians, I would recommend a vet visit for both for a parasite check.

If that is residual paint in the tray I would be sure to scrub until all paint is gone in its entirety as this will be a source of sitting water and tortoise nails scraping across the paint...you know? Paint is toxic in this fashion....I would just make sure all paint is gone or maybe pick up a new one tomorrow while you are getting the torts....simply a concern shared is all.... ;)

I would just buy a new one if there is paint left over, they are like 2 or 3 bucks.

That is the cutest and coolest tortoise table! I am create one of my own right now that is a 4 by 6 and I love the little fence. It makes me want to turn the top of my enclosure its a little play pen with a fence and pretty colored velvet. :) It would be a good place to weight my tortoise and take pictures of him and just see him walk around and chill.
I really, really love how creative your tortoise table is!!! :) Awesome

Thanks! Lucky for me we just finished building a new house so I was able to have a lot of the extra supplies just laying around! I spent about $30 on the table all at Michaels Craft store! The white picket fence are popsicle sticks and I constructed that with a Hot Glue gun! It was super easy!!! Used Non Toxic acrylic paint and the fake plants were the most expensive at about $15. Other than that just be creative and have fun!!!

Beautiful encloser but may I sugest you get rid of the fake plants and put in real plants and grass. if you sprinkle grass seed around the strata it should grow on its own with the mistings and humidity... your torts will love you for this!
