Dimensions of a terrarium for a Greek tortoise

The most recommended for breeding these turtles is an open terrarium with a height of about 50 cm, which should prevent the animal from escaping. The minimum dimensions of a terrarium for a Greek turtle are 8x the length of the carapace and the width is 4x the length of the carapace. Of course, the bigger the better. It should be remembered that young turtles grow quickly, it is worth choosing an "outgrown" terrarium that will last longer, thus reducing expenses. The material for the terrarium should be resistant to moisture and allow for cleaning and disinfection. An aquarium for a steppe turtle may seem like a good idea, but unfortunately it is heavy and highly susceptible to breakage, and it is difficult to find a sufficiently large size.
