Hi Becky,

Have you not tried any of the suggestion on www.tortoises.net ?
Im sure your Dad will have lots of chicken wire you would construct a animal proof lid with.
Kellys missing out on all the sun :-(

Hi Becky,
My Husband has Just made me an outdoor enclosure it might take a bit of time though, But here is a picture of it.
Its not quite finished yet as he has to put mesh over the top yet but it keeps my dogs away and it is totally escape proof & preditor proof, But still gets lots of sunshine. its on a concrete base and buit up with 2 rows of blocks and the meshed, I hope this might give you some ideas!!

Hi Kelly,

I meant use the chicken wire as a lid, not around the sides :-)
