The information on the BambooZoo site is as much as 10 years old and in the hobby much has been learned. Though, I believe there is merit in keeping the site open. There are many controversial issues presented in these pages. Please view BambooZoo as a starting point in your research.
These beings are as complicated as we are and deserve more than a basic 5 paragraph care sheet to maintain their health and well being.

YOUNG TORTOISE ENCLOSURE
Pancake Tortoises (Malacochersus tornieri)
I was getting excited seeing everyone else making their summer enclosures, and as my garden is a building site.. I cant get to planning my permanent outdoor enclosure until next summer. So when i found that IKEA were selling a storage unit that matched my dining table and chairs (this was this morning) convinced the hubby to take a trip there so we could get it. one thing led to another and I ended up doing the whole lot this afternoon haha, hopefully it will do for Sheldon, Swarley and Spartacus for this summer.. and maybe next year depending on how far we get with our works, i cant wait to show it to them, hopefully it will be warm enough tomorrow for a short supervised visit! Hope its ok... let me know what you think! Louise
