    RE: My new aldabra tortoises

    Yes, we'll wait for your update in the next like 10 years? 15 years? To know exact sex :D

    Not to sound sarcastic, but I really hope this forum is still available by that time. To see all those torts grow and might be inherited by somebody else :)

    the wiring. Check out pics. Notice no floor but
    I did build up with sand and layed rubber on top
    of it.

    Very nice. If your going over board with a 8x12 for yours, then I am really over the top for my leopard. My 8x12 tortoise shed is being built this weekend.:)

    That shed is a great idea. Solves a lot of problems before they can appear. Safe, warm, dry. Good work.
