I’ve started work on a Testudarium for Hermes. This will comprise an outdoor area and be connected to the greenhouse. Inside the greenhouse I’ll build an enclosure and Hermes will be able to move between the two via a small swing-door. The plan is for Hermes to be outside for most of the summer and he’ll be able to go in to the greenhouse at night or if it rains.
Stage one of the Testudarium is now complete and I’ve built the wooden sides to the outdoor enclosure. I’ve dug the enclosure downwards and lined the bottom with chain-link fence which should stop Hermes digging out. I’ll back fill with soil back up to the normal ground level and plant some choice weeds in the enclosure too.
