MAN! Why didn't I think of that??? I've been using Sterilite shoe box type things for years and they are so flimsy. Torts break them, knock the lids off, and otherwise cause problems all the time. What a perfect solution. Thanks for the idea. All my ammo cans are metal, but I know where to find plastic ones.Ok. Back to some Tortoise Enclosure talk.
In year’s past, I had my LL Reptile thermostat on the outside of Sully’s night box. Various ways invoked to keep it waterproof. Some successful, one year not so much. This year, I decided to locate the thermostat inside the warm dry night box & bought a small cheap plastic “ammo” box from Harbor Freight. Ok. Summer kayaking. Grass cutting, gardening & NO RAIN slowed my progress & need to finish up. No rain, no pain.
Decided to complete the thermostat/ammo project today. A few holes, two bolts, two screws, and done. Some pix so you get the idea.
