The Tortoise Compound

Where the tortoises roam.
We dug a trench 16 inches deep and poured concrete, because this tortoise can dig out.
I poured a colored concrete and sculpted it to look like rock for a nice place to sunbathe.
The house is made of cutoff pieces of T&G pine and is insulated with solid foam.
The tortoise house has a heating pad and lighting.
As the weeds and grass grow, the tortoise has plenty to eat.
Daisy sunning.
This is the 2nd tortoise enclosure for a small Texas tortoise.
This enclosure does not need a house because the tortoise hibernates in a shoe box for 4 months out of the year.
