Hi guys!
for the lair of my baby Sulcata I created a cover of synthetic material for padding, like a pocket where she slips. this pocket is inside a wooden structure with a roof. outside at a certain distance there is a ceramic lamp that heats ... this synthetic cover is porous, retains the surrounding humidity (90%) almost to be wet ... When the baby enters it slips under it as if it were a tunnel and its shell is always wet / wet ... it should work to prevent the pyramid!

I like it!!! I just douse mine with a cap-full of spring water every day. They weren't too sure what was going on at first but now they actually seem to enjoy it. I do it right in the middle of feeding and they don't skip a bite! 2 baby 'Red-Footed tortoises, here.

What substrate are you using? And is that a red light?
it is the red one that warms, but where she sleeps it is dark! I'm waiting for the ceramic one ...

the substrate is layered: soil underneath, then peat, then orchid bark and in the house I added a layer of clay balls that retain heat
