YVONNE: the tortoise habitat was still under construction when this picture was taken last Spring. There are now considerably more "tortoise friendly" plantings within the enclosure as well as their "cave" located in the "V" at the bottom of the picture. This hide for them is covered with a sheet of plywood and several layers of fieldstone. It is further insulated by star Jasmine vines and a potted red hibiscus. Their entry is protected with concrete blocks, leaving just sufficient room for moving in an out. I would covet any further suggestions for improving their we'll - being. Thank you, Orvil

I know this is an old thread, but I just received a call from Orv asking if he and his wife could come visit next week, and wanted to refresh my memory of the story. I love this story. I love the tortoise habitat. And I'm way looking forward to meeting Orv and his wife next week!
