Hi Sue,


The substrate is about 10cm deep in the tortoise table, probably more.

I know this is an old thread but our juvenile isn't digging down at all and is simply doing the same as Gareth's photos. Soil is moist but not too wet, lamp is turned off around 6/7pm and the room cools to around 15 degrees but I think we need to maybe make it cooler?

Hi Vikki,


Do you have a link to the indoor rabbit enclosure you're using?

Both sides have been dug in and then topsoil used to raise the level - the topsoil being put inside the enclosure to raise the level was done in stages as I made sure I compacted the ground below

In Topic: Sulcata Tortoise?

Hi All,


Thanks for all of your help and advice - I really wanted to make sure I thought everything through and got others opinions before agreeing to anything - which is why I've joined this forum!


I had always thought about getting a Sulcata as a juvenile and being presented with the opportunity to have a Sulcata (all be it, not a juvenile) and also helping out I was quite interested. At the moment I have quite a bit of outdoor space and there is a plan to move within the next 12-24 months to a property with 2-3 acres of land which is why I had looked at a Sulcata juvenile, having 1-2 years for it to adapt and then moving it outside with larger amounts of room post move, again, the tortoise in question isn't a juvenile so I'm unsure that right now I could sustain a Sulcata with a potential 7m x 5m outdoor space, and 2m x 2m indoor space.


Thanks for all of your input.
