How would you keep this enclosure clean since the flooring is wood?
Answer by ChewyNov 10, 2017
It is recommended to put down newspaper first, then add the desired substrate to make the right environment for your turtle.

Would this be appropriate for a Russian tortoise? How could a floor be attached for indoor use?
Answer by ChewyJul 25, 2018
This product is suitable for a Russian tortoise. The house has a floor attached for indoor use.

How do the houses connect?
Answer by ChewyJul 13, 2018
When putting the house together, you'll notice one of the panels (left side panel) is removable making it easier to connect two houses together.

What is the floor mat like?
Answer by ChewyApr 09, 2018
This home does not include a floor mat.

Good but no guide holes

We’ve had this a couple of weeks and so far so good. My only reason for not giving five stars is there were no guide holes. Not a big deal if you have the proper tools are don’t mind winging it.

Summer camp for my Tortoise

The "house" was easy to put together, and I added a couple extra features. I put wire screen over the opening in the top since we have so many bugs here, and added a prop for the top to hold it open while I am cleaning the house. The tortoise seems happy with his new home.

Good product if you're patient.

Tortoise house showed up with no broken pieces, all screws needed were included (no extras). Assembly was easy after the first/second step. I only had two issues with this product, one of which was the strong wood smell which I had to keep the tortoise house outside for a few days to air out before moving my tortoise into it. The other is really a matter of opinion but the removable end piece made the box feel less sturdy on that end so I just screwed it together using a few screws I had laying about. My only other recommendations are that you don't use this product if you have a large species of tortoise cause the bigger they are the more space they need. It's a fine enclosure for a baby or juvenile tortoise but they will outgrow it.

Great house, strong wood fumes possible

We have two of these. They are easy to put together, look nice, and work great for their intended purpose. That said, if you need to use it asap beware of the possibility of a strong wood fume initially. The first one we bought had no fumes and we could use it right away, but the second one had a very very strong wood smell. There are no warnings about this in the pkg, but strong smells like that can be harmful to your tort or turtle. We had to let it air out a few days before we could use it.

Terrible Quality Not Worth It

I just received mine in the mail today and I am greatly dissatisfied with the quality. It is extremely fragile, some of the wood began to crack when the screws were being put in. The biggest problem so far as been that the wood is sanded in no way whatsoever, I got multiple splinters just putting it together

Perfect for my Russian Tortoise

This house was used for my russian tortoise as he was growing, he loved his time in there, it has a hiding space for when he was tired or done with socialization, and a living room area which he spent most of his time in. 1 is a bit too small for fully grown russian tortoise so by the time they get a lot bigger you should get 2 and connect them, but we just moved my tortoise into an outdoor enclosure altogether due to lack of indoor space and his preferences. Great quality, simple, easy and fun to put together, and a perfect starter home for a young tortoise.
