Hey all,

I have had my 9 month old cherry head tort for 3 months now, and it occurred to me that as he grows I'll have to get a bigger space for him. At the moment I have a 40 gallon terrarium that's 18 inches wide,3 feet long and 16 inches high. https://www.petsmart.com/reptile/ha...-living-things-reptile-terrarium-5195135.html I have been looking for new enclosures to buy but I can't seem to find a good one. I guess I could build one this summer but I don't want to resort to that quite yet.

If anyone has some good recommendations I would greatly appreciate it.

It's probably the wrong time of year to find them, but the Christmas Tree Storage Bin mfg'd by Iris is a great indoor enclosure. It's 4' long. I have several of them. And you can use the lid by just cutting out holes for the lights then wrap the spaces between the lights and the cut out with foil.

I too was thinking about what enclosure I would need as my tortoise grows bigger. I was thinking about getting a galvanized stock tank of some size to use.
