Hi Surfsup!

Are you able to baby proof a pen and put him outside away from predators? For babies I've seen quite a few people use the plastic kiddie pools (they can't climb the wall) and put wire over the top to keep birds out. Outside is really what is best for these little/big creatures. It's very easy to do - plastic kiddy pool, fill with sand/soil/dirt mixture--offer water, plants, shade, edible plants flowers/grasses/hay - and you can leave him outside all day long as long as there is sufficient shade and sun access. You can even leave him outside weather permitting - which should if you are in San Diego. Nothing stimulates these guys better than the natural sunlight. If you offer him the outdoors he would be much happier/healthier. Baby proof pens are easy to make and can be quite fun setting up.

For awhile I actually used a potting bench for 2 baby Marginated torts....I wanted them up off the ground and found a potting bench that worked perfect!
