    In this thread we are going to show some of the awesome outdoor enclosures just to give you a few ideas of what you could be creating for your own tortoises. This will be a closed thread, so only pictures of the enclosure can be shown, but we will give you links to the threads written on each of these enclosures, so you can find more information and/or ask questions of the builders.

    This thread is a work in progress with more to come!

    These pictures are from various threads showing some of terryo's enclosures.

    Spring is here and things are starting to bloom in the turtle garden. It's just a little garden on the side of my house. I think it's 22 feet by 6 feet. In the back is the hibernation cave.

    In another few weeks it should look like this (last Summer) You can only see a small entrance to the hibernation cave now

    This is Pio's garden this week, with hardly any plants. I still have to put her stone cave back together after Spring cleaning it.
