Thank you! I keep meaning to scour some vet journals for tortoise articles, but it's been madness at my office and we're understaffed, so I haven't had time.
Yeah, you know PubMed has many as well, many of those are free/open access. On no regular schedule I do a similar thing, I thought I was the only one. Google scholar has many too.

Hey all, I made a Facebook presence for this. No matter how it ends up, if/when I start selling I will always give TFO members a 10% discount. How I'll know you're a TFO member for the discount? Order here on TFO via a PM.

Until such time, the samples are free, and now that I figured out a few economies, I will be sending out samples for a longer time than I initially considered viable. One per household, unless I just send you more to try out.

It's 90F outside today, 102F inside the greenhouse and 89F inside the night house. None of the electrical units have been fired up yet. The well-insulated box is doing great.

Hi, I met someone via TFO, that is local to me that has an occasional overabundance of mulberry, he shares it with me. I call him a "Mulberry angel" for the very helpful gift of all the leaves. I figure that person will "out" them self if they want to. Tortoises seem to like Mulberry quite alot, it is great to have a Mulberry angel.

There are three 80 watt heat panels, a vestibule between inside and outside, that's why Two "air" curtains, and gasket around the lid. There is passive air circulation, no fan. We'll see how this combination works. Thanks to @Tom for all the great image threads on his builds and everyone else's too. I hope you all can see my modifying ideas and build on them.

@dmmj
I grizzled old miner comes into town for the first time in a few years. He cashes out some of his gold and decided he wants a beer and a burger before going on to other matters. he walks up the the eating establishment for which he is most familiar and sure enough it's crowded, but much more so than he recalls. Figuring that there might be a new menu he reads it. At the bottom he sees what all the fuss is about, new menu item is "Hand Job" $50.

He walks in and see the only server in the place, a really attractive women behind the bar, engaged in conversation with several customers. He knocks on the bar and she comes over and asks how can she help. He asks her if indeed she is the only person there that day, she must be horribly overworked. She winks and says its nothing she can't handle. He asks her if she is who delivers the new item on the menu. She tells him with a flirty smile that indeed she is.

He asks that before he order that she wash her hands, that he has his own unusual fetish about such. As she's washing her hands she looks over her shoulder and flashes another flirty smile. The miner notices a nail brush at the sink and indicates that would help him enjoy the day better if she used that.

When all done with an elaborate hand washing show, she comes around the bar and puts her hand on his lap and in a sexy voice asks him how he wants it. He says, I'd like the hamburger with cheese please.

First thing this a.m. I checked the temperature in the greenhouse. It was 60F degrees. Then I opened the lid to Will's night box and it was 70F degrees.

There are three radiant heat panels up in that corner shown in the picture. last night I set that rheostat (or whatever it's called) to 70. I was worried that three panels would be overkill, but this a.m. 70f it is! I'll keep checking it out over the next few weeks, as it gets colder at night, but I feel confident that I can now open the door and allow the tortoises inside.

@keepergale you can't see the second vinyl curtain as the solid wood door is closed. But there is one hanging from the 'black' bar and one vinyl curtain hanging directly behind the solid wood door. That black bar is pipe insulation over a clothes hanger rod that has vinyl curtain on it. I used the no-dimple vinyl carpet runner, double double, so four layers. The strips are cut on different intervals from one curtain sheet to another. I think many thinner vinyl strips will hold more heat in that it is lighter so slides over the shell and falls back into place better, at least for smaller species. Aldabars it might not be a good enough difference than legitimate warehouse/farm vinyl curtain material.

Here is Medea modeling the double curtain entry to the night house in Carlsbad. Two new 120 watt reptile basics heat panels in there. The simple on/off thermostat and these heat panels are killer good for heating inside a nighthouse. That's 240 watts on a thermostat and it's keeping the inside temp at 68-ish against 42 outside even with just those curtains, no solid door. Phae continues to be a pain in the a$$ but Darth and Medea totally get it.
