Please post pics of outdoor enclosures in this subject. Title the picture with which species of Tortoise lives in the enclosure as an easy reference for members to view.

Will add more soon, both from the archives and (later this Spring) some of the new pens under construction here.

This is an outdoor enclosure for my Cherry Head. We added the stream last summer. It empties into a little pond.
It is 7' x 6'.

Two males and one female live separately in here:

Two smaller Ibera live on the other side of the greenhouse in here:

The inside of the greenhouse has separate areas, basking lamps and heated hides:(due to quarantining and size differences)

My outdoor Leopard enclosure. Hatch leads from shed ( interior, soil and sand substrate, uv lamp for day, ceramic lamp for night, storage heater for added background heat in winter and wall mounted heat mat if weather gets reall cold.) Outside compromises of L shaped meadow ( variety of grasses and weeds), leading onto desert area with contours, plants and boulders for shade, broken eyeline etc. Also has own water feature for torts to bathe and drink.

This is a Hermanns enclosure I did back in the Spring. Seeded all the bare spots with feeder plants..

Image

and it kinda looks like this throughout now.

Image

I'm hoping to get a bigger "bloom" next spring, I think I left it a bit late this year. The Cistus in the bottom right hand corner of the first picture have recovered and are now in bloom. They provide a favoured shady spot and the tortoises mainly sleep dug in beneath them.

( 'scuse the bumpy Hermanni, a recent arrival!).
