I have a Russian tortoise enclosure that is 16' by 8' and made out of cinder blocks stacked 2 high. I wanted to make a lid out of wood and hardware cloth. If it is just sitting on top of the cinder blocks without hinges or a lock will this still be secure? I think the lid would weigh at least 30 lbs if not more. Will the weight alone be enough to make the lid secure? My tortoises have lived outside May-September for five years and I've never had a problem, but I just want to make sure there won't be future problems. I live in a large city so the coons mostly eat garbage around here.
