How to Build a Land Turtle Habitat – DIY Habitat
Anthony shows you how to build a land turtle habitat as he discusses the recent construction of a small terrestrial habitat. This design can be used for many Tortoises, Box Turtles, and other terrestrial turtle species. This particular design was used for Geoemyda spengleri (Vietnamese Black-Breasted Leaf Turtle). We get many of our habitat supplies from NE Herp. To see each new video as it comes, either subscribe on YouTube or fill out the form in the sidebar to subscribe to this blog. Thanks for watching!
