    Ghost is fast approaching the size where I feel comfortable leaving him outside during the day. Enclosure is 95% complete (pics soon to follow). How should I introduce him to his new home? All at once or slowly over time? Thanks in advance!

    I prefer to do it gradually. Start with an hour, and gradually add time each time the tortoise goes out there.
