      is this within the footprint of the old Galapagos giant tortoise enclosure?
    • SMR
      @Swampy No, this is further along, the recessed seat is just behind. The Galapagos tortoise enclosure was on the site of an old crocodile pool, and nearer the entrance.

      I wonder why build a house indoors? why not just a pen?

      @NigeW separate climate control.

      Ah I see. Makes sense.
      Maybe Tropical Realm is a bit drafty these days.

      Could also allow for greater security, given the fact that Radiated Tortoise are one of the most popular species on the black market.
