Question I think they're really turtles?

So we got them inside for their bath....



Once released back into the open, Fiorano has decided do go for a paddle, and a further shower










This was whilst Valentino was about to commence additional excavation in the hide I built for them




It is strangely therapeutic watching them scamper around

Lol, not photoshopped! Though it is a good camera (even if i say so myself ).

Quite chuffed with the water feature, it is a "large" feeding dish from the sw shop, buried in a mound of slate, with a small outdoor pump (from hong kong 3.95 delivered! ), the pipe is then fed up the back and hidden under another slate block.
I adjusted the flow rate to just clear the lip of the shelf

The down side is that if the pump intake blocks up, the flow drops, and the water just empties out of the bowl

Your waterfall feature is such a great idea. And your torts look fantastic too!
