Is this an okay terrarium for starters?

image.jpg image.jpg I just got a baby Greek tortoise, and since it is the first time I'm making a terrarium, here goes nothing.
Note: I am going to get a basking lamp, (UV) as soon as I find one. There are none sold in my country and I ordered one online.
Any advice? What do you think?

It's beautiful! One thing though, make sure it's not too crowded and he/she can walk in a clear space :)

Welcome. Make sure she doesn't overheat in the sun. The substrate should be deep enough to burrow into, and slightly moist.

Those small white rocks could be an attractive nuisance.

yeah, she might try to eat the white rocky bits.
Otherwise a good start, I think, until you get the uvb set up and a bigger space.

SUCH a pretty baby and beautiful set up!! I would (as suggested) remove the white rocks so she does not ingest them and maybe a few of the larger rocks just so she has more walking room. GREAT job!! WELCOME!
