They look like some very happy tortoises. . Is that a ridge tile underneath the grass?

I love to look at photos of outdoor enclosures for ideas and inspiration.

Plans for Jerry's summer abode are well underway.I can't wait to get him 'al fresco'.

Yes it's just a ridge tile, I just placed the grass over it, it's worked well. :)

I did this once, too, Karen, but Harry thought it was great fun to clamber up the slope to the top and then leap off. I was worried he'd break his neck, so had to dismantle it.

Mine don't climb on this one, it's tucked in front of a large heather plant, they do use it to hide away though. :)

I wish Harry would have done the same, Karen, he's a devil for jumping from heights; I have to be so careful with what I put in his enclosure.

I have some kamikaze ones too. I've had them climb fences and crates, little devils. It happens in the wild too. Once saw a pit that torts had fallen into, not sure whether by accident or deliberately.
