    We just moved and have two options to make the new enclosure.
    #1. Back porch, large, no direct sunshine
    #2. Front upstairs porch, small but would get the whole porch, walls go up about 3 feet, has direct sunshine.

    Thanks for any input!

    What type of tortoise?
    Some benefit from full sun.
    Some prefer indirect.
    All species do better in a very large enclosure

    Neither sounds ideal. Size and species would give us a better idea. And what size area are we talking about for the porches?
