I know size could be bigger, but I am really proud of myself for the changes I have made in the last week for Otis! 🥰 larger enclosure, deeper substrate, hide on the cool side, new light fixture with reptisun 10.0 bulb, and soaking pellets before serving with greens. Basking temp is 100-102 degrees, cool side is 77 currently, and drops to around 68 degrees at night. Otis seems to be settling in nicely!

Great stuff...Nice work, I'm sure Otis will approve!!
As mentioned above.. a few plants and some small rocks/large pebbles here n there would look great for you and for him!
I've had decent success with 2 spider plants in the enclosure and some potted pansies. Increases ambient humidity in the environment too and they're edible/safe. (I'm using a table setup too)

I'm constantly improving Sheldon's environment as I go, adding more enrichment for him.. things to play with and stuff to explore!
It's like a never ending project when you get going 😂
This is us so far...

Walk then Run!! now you need to finds some plants to add especially weeds since you might be feeling spring soon up there!
I bought seeds from tortoise supply that I am working on sprouting! I also found dandelion greens at Whole Foods so those are being mixed into the rotation too! I had little aloe plants in there and he ate them within the first two weeks 😂
