Hello! This is Rocky. I responded to a rehoming request on Craiglist and Rocky has been with me for almost three weeks. The posts that recommended daily soaking for tortoises having hard times adjusting to new environments were very helpful. Rocky’s initial hunger strike only lasted 6 days. He’a eating well now and getting more and more use to his new environment. I temporarily have him in commercial tortoise table with the separating wall removed. He has a T8 HO uvb and an incandescent flood light for heat. Temps range from 100° under the lamp to about 75° on the cold side. He also get’s time in a 2’x8’ expen with light and heat for more exercise. I’m planning to build him an outdoor enclosure (we live in Phoenix) with two boxes (4 sets) of Costco planters 2’hx4’wx12’l in the southwest corner of my yard against the cement block walls. I plan to cover it with expen panels. We have flood irrigation but that corner is at the highest elevation and I plan to fill the planter well above the berm level. Does anyone else have enclosures in yards with flood irrigation?
