I'm very excited about the new addition to my family - a hatchling Forsten's tortoise from ATC! I'm especially impressed with the size of this hatchling - his carapace length is around 65 mm.. Suwalesi_tortoise-01.jpg

Pretty little one. You care to share his/her enclosure? I have no idea how to set-up for one. Thanks.

I'm keeping this guy in a 48" wide x 24" deep x 12" tall Boaphile snake cage that I converted to an indoor tortoise enclosure. The substrate is moist coconut coir, and I've installed a UV A/B light inside. It stays very moist in this enclosure. I have another one I use for my baby red-footed tortoises and they love it.
