Hey,[/INDENT]I posted alot of questions on this at HH or here, so i will try both. My birthday is coming up soon (12.12.2005) and i have one thing on my wishlist. A red footed tortous (or at least for my bithday). I will be planning to let her roam the yard with my supervision but she will be sleeping in a 40 breeder as a baby. However, I would also like to keep her outside (I live in Miami Beach, Fl) eventually. I was told to have the enclosher wired to prevent cats and giant possoms with the biggest teeth you can imagine from harming the tortous. But if it is wired in my mother will get depressed and the tortous would be in trouble (my mother takes action quik) and i was wondering if any of you guys can think she (the tortious) can have an opened enviroment that would not be depressing and would be safe from possoms and cats. Once again this is a redfooted tortious (dont get that big to my knowledge).
