This is my indoor hatchling/juvenile enclosure. I have 3 tubs made into 1 currently housing some baby desert tortoises, I have a humidifier running 24/7 in my room with all of my air vents closed. I soak daily for 30 minutes minimum and I spray down the enclosure and the carapace of each tortoise about 5-6 times a day throughout the day. I rub unrefined cold pressed coconut oil on the carapace of each tortoise ONCE a week, this is to help combat moisture loss from my heat lamps/ceramic heat emitters. I have 5 burrows that I’d consider all humid hides, humidity levels exceed 90% 24/7 in each burrow. Ambient humidity is constantly sitting at 70%, their diet consists of mustard greens, collard greens, bok choy, kale, green leaf lettuce, and mazuri. I dust their food with calcium no D3 three times a week. I’m currently in the works of adding 2 more tubs to this enclosure to make it bigger. 5DCA1D4A-DCE6-4021-84F1-D3C0DE43982E.jpeg 9F9AC135-FCAF-42B1-992A-7C16719BFE23.jpg F441CCC1-BEF8-4246-9F28-B284507AC7BE.jpg ABEF1C14-1D4F-4AED-8C47-E6ADE0FA74D3.jpg 899A4C0E-566D-4DB3-9093-E5FFEC27BFBA.jpeg 5107638A-A6C3-4223-BD21-5B842A39421C.jpeg 4CD9B5B3-4346-4853-8971-3692D1817CBC.jpeg

Welcome to the Forum. Your tortoises are beautiful. I love Desert Tortoises; they are so personable.
Thank you! I love how informative this forum is it really does help a ton, and I know I’m in absolute love with mine! Their eyes are so mesmerizing I can literally watch them all day long.

Wow, nice setup and clearly working well because those babies look great. I’m counting 13 light fixtures??!!
Thank you very much & yes it works great, if I ever need more space I can just add however many more tubs it’s pretty neat. 13 is correct lol, I need more for the far right side of the enclosure though :/
