I'll try for the paperwork but not holding out
She has a pet plan so I'll book her in for a pre hibernation check and trim on the beak and nails.
I'm hopfully going to let her have a sleep this winter.
It's anoying she had a massive growth spurt which got out of control when we got her but that's in the past and now I know better. thanks to this forum and the tortoice table forum.

Not many forums recommend pre or post hibernation checks as there’s nothing the vet can tell you unless he does bloods etc Good idea re the beak though :)

Decided to bring her in after the horrid wether thismorning and for the next few weeks.
So I pop up to b&q for some materials and built this today.
It's all the space I have available but once she settles down I think there will be no problem.
And I'll be booking her in for a trim in the next week or two.

Just finished enlarging the outdoor area this weekend flash now has almost half of my garden.
It's 2.4 by 2.4 with grasses and a cold frame with auto opener, a heat tube set to 10 degrees also her heat lamp will be fitted inside once she goes out for the summer.
The plant bed behind has been seeded with tort food so hopfully things should start to grow soon.
I hope you all like it

Really looks good, well done!

Tortoise outdoor enclosures are like a garden in a garden.

 

I joined recently this group on Facebook, i recommend it as well.
