Does anyone know if there is any reason why cork bark cannot be left outside. My three love it in the indoor run I was watching Peta climbing all the time yesterday and thought these would be nice in Tort Gardens. I have logs I am going to use but they can only climb if the depth is small enough to get their legs up. What does everyone else use for climbing obstacles x x hugs x x

Hi Stellanne,
Unfortunately I have no experience using cork bark in my torts enclosure. However, I wouldn't be surprised if torts came across it occasionally in their natural habitats.
Hopefully there will be others along shortly to offer you more helpful advice. Best of luck.
Kind Regards
Freddy

When I visited Corsica, which was great, I saw some of those cork oak trees which grow around the Mediterranean countries. I admit I did pick up a large chunk that was lying next to a cork oak and smuggled it home. It's a lovely natural material and can be used outside but will tend to decay if left out all year.

I wish I had a nice supply of cork bark!

I wish I had Ozric, it is so expensive... I love it in the indoor pens but as you may have been reading my torts are moving outside this summer and will hopefully stay there.... Health permitting. X x x hugs x c thanks for the great picture x
