Question Any sugestions....?

I was wondering if any body could recomend some good bargains and ideas for housing and decorating for our Horsfield called Nitro?

Any help would be gratefully appreciated, thank you!

Hi, in my tortoise's enclosure, ive got a half log at one end, for them to be able to hide/sleep in, or they even go in to cool off sometimes. ive also got a ceramic type water dish, quite a realistic look! ive put some little pebbles around the water dish to give abit more variety. i also have bits of cuttle fish in their enclosure as they are always nibbling on it. and finally i have a ceramic tile near where their light is, and they are forever bathing on it as it holds the heat. I would love to have some plants in mine, but im using pellett substrate at the mo. hope this helps abit.

Ive got afew rocks for Alfie to climb over can get big bags from B&Q quite cheap. Ive also got some winter pansies in for him to eat and afew other little plants for him. Make sure you put a hide in aswell. In the soil ive made afew tunnels for him. Hope this helps. The more things you put in the more your tort will have to keep him occupied
