Hello Everyone!!

I just wanted to show off my two new enclosures that were made by @Markw84 . I needed to separate my 2 year old Eastern Hermann’s, Tikki and Tavi. It was definitely time to give them each their own place. Mark did an amazing job and I can’t say enough about these awesome enclosures!! Best decision ever!! Tikki and Tavi are doing great and have been exploring every inch and trying out their different humid hides. These closed chamber enclosures definitely keep the heat and humidity up!! I absolutely love them!! And so do my babies!!

Here is the journey from start to finish. It arrived safely, all the way from California, in a well packed crate. I had a friend build a basic wooden stand for the enclosures. I’m using fine Coco Coir topped with Coco Coir Husks as the substrate. The basking light is the Phillips 65 watt bulb, the UVB is the Arcadia T5 HO 12.0 and then a 100 watt CHE

To save you time, I've made a comprehensive list of everything that is wrong with that enclosure set-up:

1. It's not at my house.
2. ...well, that's about all I've got.

Excellent set-up in all respects. Your torts should love it.

I love it! And I would be proud to have it in my living room. Nothing ugly about it.
Thank you so much!!? I have a small house so that was the only place to put it. I have a 125 gallon tank with a separate dry dock tank on top for my red eared slider that takes up a complete wall too!! I’m surrounded by turtles LOL!! ???

This post wins the internet for the day! I'm at work and people are staring at me wondering what the heck I'm laughing so hard at. Ahhh. Thank you for that.


@1wildtiger You've done an amazing job there. I too, am envious. Very lucky tortoises to be living with you.

Awww!! Thank you Tom!!! You guys have all helped me understand the complexity of tortoise keeping!! It should definitely not be entered into lightly!! They take a lot of time, money and commitment to do it right!! I just want to make sure their little lives are as good and long as possible!! I can 100% guarantee that this forum has given me the best possible chance for success!! Thanks again to everyone here!! ?
