That looks awsome! I'm sure your littls tortoise will love that, it's a rather large space which is great - and a clear separation for hot and cooler areas.

Hi deano, I did the same thing and I bought a viv later to find out that tortoises shouldn't live in them - he lived in it for approx a week or so and his whole life up until I managed to sell the viv on gumtree and buy a tortoise table on ebay, was a little bit of a pain as I was told by the pet shop where I bought sherman that she keeps her tortoises in a 4" viv and she they are fine because she can maintain the temperature within the viv but not in a tortoise table - I see where she is coming from with that mind. But ever since I put sherm in his tortoise table with heat and uv bulb and soil instead of vivarium with heat matt and mattstatt, uv llight and totoise pellets for floor coverage..he seems so much more on the go - however past day or so he's been a little slower. But overall id definitely suggest a tortoise table!! I got ours from ebay for £50 including uv bulb and heat lamp and delivery! :-)
