Bargain Sarah is here again

We changed the cherrys enclosure last night and we brought a under bed storage tub from B&Q that cost about 7.50 and it came with wheels which it thought was a really good idea if you took it outside for the summer as you could wheel it around your garden as the sun moves.

Anyway here are some more pictures

Yeah i have seen it, i have two set ups on a shelf to save space and two set ups on small table in my adult spur thighed enclosure, she likes walking underneath the table. Ansy and I always find ourselves walking around shops thinking could we use that for the tortoises, that all we think about tortoises tortoises tortoises they are so adictive.

Hi have just bought one of those under bed storage things and will be using it for my Winnie's outside enclosure in the summer. Unfortunately I do not have a garden just a yard. But will make it as pleasent for her as possible.
Any ideas are verry welcome.

Dave

I will just be putting my tortoise tubs outside this summer for my babies as i am scared of losing them. I use hemp as a substrate for my meds and sand, soil and wood chippings for my reds and cherrys. I plant pansies in my enclosures (other plants can be used), they love climbing over them, so funny to watch.

What you could do dave is plant it up with aload of weeds bit like one of those fancy plant troughs except no fancy plants just weeds it will be home from home for your tort, mind you may have to make drainage holes in the bottom so it doesn't fill with water when it rains, when out picking weeds try lifting the whole plant danelions are the best for this then remove the leaves and plant the root it will regerminate in no time

Hi Dave,

Just an idea for making a tortoise enclosure in your yard. I've got a concrete area just outside my back door. I just took a corner of it and built a wall around the other two sides with bricks and things, making an area of about 10 ft by 7 ft, and then dumped lots of soil and sand in it to a depth of about two or three inches. Then I put in some paving stones, plants, and a little house, and it makes a great enclosure (and it means my horsefield can't burrow out). I've never tried to attach a picture before so it probably won't work, but here goes.

Thanks, Joanne. There's an area on the left where an aloe vera makes the top of a tunnel between the paving stones and the ground, and Boris loves to go through there. And he's especially fond of crawling up the soil in that big flowerpot on its side on the right and digging himself in. Sadly, the whole area looks rather run-down now, and I can't wait for the warm weather to come so I can get it into shape and get Boris out there.

Nina
P.S. Here's another picture of Boris heading for the little wooden house that I put in there for him.
