    I'm sorry, didn't mean to come off nosy. I was interested in how the enclosure was made. Again sorry.

    Thank for sharing this with us, Welcome to the forum. I have a 8 month old aldabra and he/she is such a change from raising sulcatas. The Aldabra's are so laid back where the sulcata's are the demolition crew. LOL

    It's been a busy year starting our veterinary practice (for that reason I have been AWOL form the forum), however coming home to tortoises has kept me as grounded as possible day after day. Tico is now over 24" SCL! 638.JPG 643.JPG 647.JPG

    Tico's gregarious personality... it's difficult to say if he wants to be watch dog or just the center of attention.

    Beautiful animals, I hope I do all the right thing for my little guy as you and Aldabraman have done for yours.
