"Well he wont be indoors 24/7 i live in so. cal. and the nights get to about 65 and lower sometimes high 50. Also around here its overcast til 10-11 so its only in the 60 til then thats how wheather is by the ocean. So i want to bring him in every time its cold and once its warm he can go outside. So its not a perminit home indoors. I just need ideas on how to make simple setups so he can live in there through cold nights, sometimes cold days. Anyone else have information and pictures. Thank you all."

like brad said, go to russiantortoise.org and you'll find picture galleries of several different set ups. once you have the tort's health stabilized (wormed and feeding the correct diet) you should be able to keep your RT outside most of the time.

i have a large herd outside 24/7 in the bay area from march thru oct without nary a sniffle. i had the same herd in minnesota for nine years outside 24/7 from may thru sept.

good luck,

matt
