This looks like a place where I'd like to live if I were a tortoise. How will you incorporate the UVB tube? Be sure and post the pictures of your enclosure when you get it, and thanks for posting this one for us to see.

Oh I love it! Can I be real snoopy and ask what something like that will run you?

Wow, nice job. What a very lucky tortoise you have. I hope he/she likes it. I am interested if they will climb to use the hide. Can you take pictures of them using the ramp?

Thanks for all the replies guys....The person who will make it for me won't get to it for another couple of weeks. Once I have it I will make plenty of pics to share here....He will charge me $150 US for it!!! Which I think is very reasonable..... I don't have a UVB bulb, just a UVB light fixture which will hang from an arm!

I do not know the dimensions of the one in the picture shown, but mine is going to be the following:

2 feet (24 inches) WIDE
4 1/2 feet (54 inches) LONG
10 inches HIGH

that just works best for the space I have.
