Hingeback Outdoor Enclosure

Postby Peter » Sat May 02, 2009 2:39 pm

Just though I'd add a photo of the Hinges outdoor area. Still got a lot to do, needs more plants and I want to fill the greenhouse with soil for them, but its getting there and they do seem to like it out there.

Also a view over a few of the new enclosures:

A great looking enclosure Peter, a lot of work and effort has gone into it.
Let us know how it works for the hinges please?

That is very nice, you have a new vocation as a tortoise landscape gardener :lol:
Have they been enjoying themselves in their new enclosure and rewarding you by eating lots :P

Thanks guys. Unfortunately its gone cold here again, so no outside for the Hingebacks at the moment. Its a shame, because they seem to love it outside and I think they eat more. They certainly go snail hunting when they're out, its quite interesting to watch.

Julie, the first thing I learned was not to put them in full sun, they hate it. Luckily this corner gets less sun than the rest of the area so was ideal for them, they seem much happier now they're up there. I want to add more plants, but will do this gradually.

Lisa, I started off just changing one slightly and ended up demolishing most of them and starting again :lol: I'm never satisfied and change them most years :roll:
