    Ideas for Tunnel / Hide - Not Wood

    Hi, I've had two wooden tunnels in Norman's enclosure, one is like a hollowed log and the other is joined sticks that you can mould into different shapes. Both are showing signs of mould due to the moisture in the enclosure so I've had to remove them. Does anyone have any suggestions of...

    One-Piece Tortoise Table Liner (Picture Heavy)

    Thanks Maro2Bear! I'm currently scratching my head about the cut-out for the entrance to the main covered section, I want to mainly protect the floor from the moisture but also don't want the possibility of Norman slipping down the gap. Do you think if I cut a flap and wrap it around and then...

    Need to “waterproof” sides of wood enclosure???

    I lined mind today with a rubble sack, but it looks awful. I've just posted a new thread, I'm going to try and custom make a liner (possibly from pond liner) to fit my tortoise table exactly!

    One-Piece Tortoise Table Liner (Picture Heavy)

    Bit of an update! Felt very anxious overnight, suppose that's only natural when getting a new pet! Bathed him this morning for around 15 mins but he just kind of sat still the whole time! After that I put him back in his table with a nice fresh bowl of greens and some clean water. He stayed...

    Thanks @Sarah2020 and @Golden Greek Tortoise 567 After trawling through a few threads it seems coco coir and top soil mix is a favourable option? Would a mix of the below be Ok?

    We literally got him/her today so we are going to start a routine of weighing and soaking each morning 😁 Based on the registration docs for the microchip we are estimating he is 10-12 months old. Registered in Nov 2019.
