    I have to ask what your plans are for the future of the tortoise. When fully grown they will need a large outdoor enclosure. Seeing as you live in new jersey that is going to be a bit of a problem. These are tropical tortoises and they do not brumate over the winter.

    For the time being I will be housing her indoors with all she needs. UVB, basking spot and the proper humidity. Since she will be only 3 inches she will be housed in a 4 foot by 2 foot wooden enclosure. In a few months I will be moving to Pennsylvania where I will have 3 acres of land. I'll be building her and my box turtle their own outside enclosure for the warm days and then they will be housed inside once it starts getting cold.
