Hi, recently moved home and due to our upgrade to a larger home, we thought it's only fare to upgrade sherman's too! 1.5m x 60cm which seems rather large but no doubt he'll grow into it.

Hi Laura,

Sherman's new table is a good size, they need a lot of space to roam around, I hope you don't mind me saying but I think it would be a lot better for Sherman If you made a few changes, he'll thank you for it, I would take out all the shavings, wood chip substrate and change it to topsoil in all the enclosure, even the sleeping area or if possible remove the sleeping area altogether as they serve no purpose really, and you might find once he's in there it will be hard for him to wake up him self on a morning, I would also move the stones from under the heat lamp it's best to have nothing there just soil, also it could be the picture but the table looks quite dark it might be an idea to add more light to the table, tortoises need a lot of light to help them get up on a morning and be active. :)
