They are commonly called calf igloos here and used for calves aged 0-10 weeks. Some use them for sheep and other smaller livestock. This product isn't called an igloo when the website is changed to English, but in finnish it is: https://maatilatukku.fi/modular-box/calves-hutch-4

There are some that look more like igloos, but I couldn't find one to link in English for all of you 😅

Sorry for the late reply.
Just saw your post. The bad weather was just south of us. We got rain but not anything out of the normal. We were so dry here. That the ground absorb the water quickly.
Thanks for the concern.

I have a section of grass that the lawnmower guy doesn't cut.
Pretty soon you won't be able to see Opo.

We didn’t have video back in my day.
I only have still pictures of my horrendous husbandry as a tortoise owner. 😣🥺😫😞😞
I will NEEEVER forgive myself!
Sally’s shell proves that to me everyday. 😭

I knew how big a sulcata would get. But I didn't do any research ahead of time. Thankfully I had the means to be able to accomplish the things needed to care for Opo properly.

I'm sure what matters to Sally is how well you have looked after her in general over the years - she has had a happy life with you and Gary, and she knows you care about her.
She isn't bothered about her shell - how often do you catch her looking in a mirror ?

Thanks Angie!
It’s not as bad as it could be I guess,
but I wish I had known….😞
Thankfully your words make me feel much better.
This is why I love you so much!! 😍

If you look at Opo's carapace. Pyramiding is already starting. It was about 4 months before finding TFO. I surfed around the internet and got more bad info during that 4 months. I definitely believe what TFO suggest about 80% humidity. I also think I was way over feeding Opo. To me that makes for faster growth and may contribute to pyramiding. When your tort is already pyramiding. I am probably wrong but that's my theory.
