5- Pictures of the completed work :
These type of tortoises called Pancake tortoises need a gaps and holes in slate rockes , So I used normal natural slate rocks ( I purchased from a nursery nearby me ) .. I put ome leaves , plants ..
I paint the vivarium with white color before I apply the internal decoration ..
4- Lighting : Clips ( I found it in ACE hardware ) will be used to tighten the pipe
Then wires will be run through the pipes for both hoods as below :
