Tortoise Shelter – use a Cloche

Glass cloche for vegetable gardenIt might be an unusual application, but our glass cloches also make a suitable shelter for a tortoise. Growers use cloches as the glass allows the sun’s rays to warm up the ground. In the same way, not only will the cloche give the tortoise some shelter from the elements, but the glass will allow the tortoise to bask in the sun.

The ends of the cloche are removable, so the tortoise can walk right through the cloche, or you could put the ends on and keep the tortoise out – allowing the ground and grass to recuperate.

The cloche is 78 cm long and 55cm wide so there is plenty of room for the tortoises inside.
