    I made a new balcony for Gus a couple weeks ago - What do you guys think? I'm graduating college and moving out of my dorm in May so I'll probably be getting him a bigger enclosure soon but wanted to expand his space in the meantime. He really likes it so far, although he is constantly going to the bathroom on the ramp, which I had to replace today. I was thinking of adding a terrarium liner to the top (right now it is a child's play mat) but heard this isn't good for tortoises.

    (Also, I'd like to clarify that the little tortoise hanging out in the water dish isn't real - its one of those pot huggers!)

    Solid. Remember he will need a 8x4 enclosure. Those are some ideas.
