    I want to make the perfect cage for my baby. I got her and i want to make her cage decorated. Any recommendations to make the cage exciting for her.

    Hi Winona,

    We have an enclosure section with lots of pictures of beautiful enclosures. http://www.tortoiseforum.org/forums/tortoise-enclosures.7/

    Make sure your baby's needs are met as far as space, safety, heat, humidity and lighting before you get around to decorating.

    Hello and Welcome. I agree, with the proper amount of space, heat, lighting, humidity, hydration, UVB and diet, your little one will be very happy.

    Hi Winona and welcome to the Forum!

    We'll need to know what species and how big your baby is before we can help you. In the meantime, take a look at the stickies at the top of our enclosure section for ideas.

    (And get the idea of "cage" out of you head. You want a natural-looking "habitat.")

    And you'll probably find you never get it 'perfect'.
    I seem to spend forever tweaking things.

    Welcome Winona.
    Have you decided on a species? Do you already have the tortoise?
    The type/species will help us recommend the type of enclosure.
    Also your location. Cold...Tropical...

    "perfect" enclosure would be nice to your tortoises native habitat and but lots of land and then....

    We need more details in order to give ideas, like was mentioned above.
