Hello,
some times ago I shared here my indoor enclosure. Now I share my outdoor enclosure for 2 marginated tortoises. Any tips how to improve the area?

It looks great. But if that stuff on the bottom is sand you shouldn't use sand. It looks like you have two beautiful females there. But they may be to young to tell. Apart from the sand it looks great. I am a massive fan of margies to.

That's a pretty nice place for your two tortoises. If it gets very hot where you live you might consider making some sort of shade over the hiding part of the enclosure. I like the different plants you have in there. Very nice.

Hello!!

I'm also a massive fan of marginated tortoise. I like the enclosure. Did you painted/weather treated the board? and you will expend the size of the enclosure in the future right?

Bottom is a mix of soil (90%) and sand (10%). I´ve painted whole enclosure and the the house is also heat-insulated. Tortoises during the sunny weather can use a house as a cover, because of stabile temperature. Once they are bigger I will surely prepare a bigger enclosure for them.
