Yesterday my girlfriend and I worked on a tub extension for the tortoise habitat. Phew what an adventure! Cutting plastic isn't very pleasurable and caused a bunch of cracks. Yeah for duck tape!

I was going to make a complete tutorial on how I made it but forgot some steps on camera.

The habitat worked out better than expected. The ramp from tub 1 to tub 2 works great and he seems to be able to manage it easily. The first time he used the new tub he took the wrong path. You can listen to the audio at the last scene of the video clip.

He now has a hot area, UVB reduced heat area, humid area and cool zone including watering hole. I will be rigging up my humidifier to keep the habit humid.

I left the lip for the second tub open. Honestly got lazy but I enjoy looking over and watching him eat. I'm not exactly sure what I will be doing with it yet. It is his cool zone. The lip doesn't allow for visibility. The humidity has increased to a stable 60% which is exciting! Advice?

I hope you enjoy the pictures and the video!

Video is 2x speed except last scene. Little profanity used in audio.

I forgot to make the video public on Facebook...

He is a Russian Tortoise. I saved him from a terrible life at Petco.

The duck tape did wonders for making sure there was no sharp edges he could cut himself on.

Thank You for read!!!
