    Put this together to attach to my redfoots other cage. Do you think they will love or hate it. I like it. Just not sure if then can climb the rocks yet. They are kinda young and small.

    What do you think

    From reading other posts, that plan is toxic. Get it out

    It's a pothos. It's not toxic haha. If it is my babies would have died ages ago. :/

    My redfoot has eaten small amounts of pothos and been fine. I think South American torts can tolerate it but for all others it should be avoided.

    It's fine for torts that live in woods like areas I think. I know it's safe it's just high in that o acid. Can't remember what's it's called

    Re: RE: Love??? Or Hate???

    Thank you Wellington. Do you like my cave? It was very hard to make sturdy and keep it natural looking haha. It's actually got no dirt on the top. It's rocks with a little dirt packed on the sides to hide them. :) that way no cave-ins. This is completely different for me and them. The other enclosure is just coco fiber with a section of Cyprus mulch. This is a mix of sand, coco fiber, Cyprus mulch, and peatmoss. It's a very nice mix. It holds it's shape.

    It's also much deeper so higher humidity which everyone is telling me I need.
