So! I know it has been a LONG time coming, but I am finally done with my turtle enclosure!!!
I have an Eastern box Turtle named Greta that I rescued the day before my B-day about 1 1/2 years ago.
This is her story about her journey from living in a studio apartment to a comfortable sprawling house with acreage!
The Homemade Temporary Rubbermaid Bin Enclosure (a.k.a. the studio apt.)
(This is what I did to get to the final product)
->Started out with several pieces of foam poster board duct taped together:
->Wrapped black trashbags around for some water/spillproofing:
->Layed out slate tiles as flooring:
->And then took the black pan filled it with peat moss and decorated the enclosure with other accessories (big corner rock h2o bowl, food dish, a garden stepping stone, 2 garden pots, a fake grassy plant from the petstore, and a large piece of wood draped in fake vines that came with the enclosure)
AND HERE here is the final product!! (a.k.a sprawling country home
Here is Greta eating in the enclosure when she first was put in. At first she was a little freaked out, but then she saw her food and all her fear disappeared and she started chowing down, the little piggy. :rolleyes:
Here is a Pic of my reptile corner in my house (My Bearded Dragon's and Greta's new enclosure, the stand for my Bearded Dragon's tank is new too! His got upgraded from a makeshift stand out of closet organizing cubes that you can put together. He is also inheriting Greta's old rock water bowl that is shown in the pic of the Rubbermaid Bin setup above):
I must say, that I AM pretty proud of what I put together here
