    I believe the best material for door flaps depends on where you are and your climate. What works for people in warmer climates wont work for people like me where we have very cold and windy winter weather.( If you keep your tortoise outside all year).

    My Sulcata tortoise loves her outdoor dog house! I’ve been using this natural material for the enclosure, but I’m planning to change it before summer!

    I'm going to use the clear shower curtain idea for my redfoot, Lyric. Should work really well here in Florida.

    I got the door curtains shipped in and I'm very happy with them, they are made with heavy gauge steel to form the clamp around the holes in each slat for the vinyl... makes for easy replacement as well...
