They look great Sarah, and that was cheap as chips for the set-up :D . You have officially caught Tortoiseitis, Welcome to the Club, where you can never have to many tortoises.

They have settled in fine they are so cute, within minutes of putting them in their new enclosure they started to eat. The horsfeild is fine today they have both ate fine, you wouldn't have know that you had to wrestle for over an hour to worm her lol

That you very much, they are both doing very well and are eating weeds as I type. They are both loving their new home. You can never have to many tortoises as as long as i have the time and room to keep them i hope i have many more.

Here is a picture of my new med spur thighed tortoise having a bath. His name is chip because of his chip on his beak.
