    Do you have to cover the top of outdoor enclosure

    That's a redfoot tortoise. I don't cover my outdoor tortoise yards, but there are many trees and bushes in there. Also, I lock everyone up in their sheds at night.

    New owner of yellow foot tortoise

    May we see pictures of your new tortoise? Sometimes people mistake redfoots for yellowfoots because the redfoots have yellow spots on their legs. My YFs live outside 24/7, but I lock everyone up inside their heated sheds at night

    I like cats. I dislike cat owners. Please help

    Can CDT upper respiratory disease jump to other tortoise breeds?

    I don't know the answer to that, but if YOU can bring the critter into the pen on the bottom of your shoes, then the dogs can too. So, in THAT way the answer would be yes.
