Hi everyone, I'm new here. I recently started to build my juvenile Redfoot enclosure. 8 inch boards are buried along the sides and on boards on top to prevent climbing.
Here's the progress so far. Changed my top design so I need to run back to home depot and grab a couple more 2x4's. Top should be done in a couple days, as well as the tortoise house. I'll also be adding plants next weekend.

Update:
Finished the framing on the top. I made one section removable so I could have easier access to the house. I brought hardware cloth but had to return it cause it was all broken. Going to finish it tomorrow or monday. Also I added a little cave.

One of those squarish panels should be covered in plywood..
You'll find that your Redfoot will want a shady, cooler area to hang out in for most of the brightest part of the day.
You'll also want a large, shallow pan of water. They'll want to sit in the water a lot.
