This is my indoor enclosure for my 2 new yearlings, Aloysius & Ulysses. As I have dogs the cage top is very important for safety!! At the moment I am carrying it in & outside until I build my outdoor enclosure for next spring.
I have got top-soil for the main substrate with some coconut fibre in the areas where they do most of their digging down.
I've only had them for a week but they seem to be settling in!

Ideal Kate. I would possibly make a little deeper, but then with carrying in and out it would make it heavy.

Thanks.
it is quite deep- shallowest places they are able to burrow down completely so I can't see them at all. It varies from probably 2-3 inches to about 5-6 where there's hills!!
Yes it is heavy though- my back isn't too happy!! Some days I have to get it in & out on my own. It is on a stand with wheels but they are only little & it still takes a lot of manoeuvring!! ( I move it whilst Torts are having their bath so they don't think there's an earthquake going on?!!!) I have learnt to water it once moved though - so it is a little lighter!!!

That's fine, pics can be deceiving - I was looking at the bottom ridge and comparing it with mine ;)

Yes I can see it is a bit deceiving - that lip is where the cage sits on the stand & there's a few more inches under there.
