Thanks for emailing-I tried to email back to your Hotmail account but it got bounced....

I had come to the same conclusion-greeks, Hermanns, marginateds should all do fine outdoors here. I also like Stars, just will have to bring them in for three months in the winter. I'm mainly a snake guy, but have always liked chelonians, just that up north I had no room for them. I do have a nice colony of locality spotted turtles though.

I am going to make the pens out of rockwork and mortar. I'll plant the interiors with a good med tortoise seed mix. I was thinking about starting the base about 10 inches below ground-think that is deep enough? I know russians burrow, how about the rest?
