I am looking at using an Arcadia D3 UV basking lamp to heat/light my tortoise table for a horsfield tortoise. I understand this lamp cannot be used with a thermostat, should I look at another option. p.s. I have the the table but not the tortoise yet.
I have brought a baby tortoise a couple of days ago he is 5 months old.
He just don't seem to be interested in any food or water. Which is leaving us concerned.
Has anyone got any suggestions to what we should try?

I have a Horsfield tortoise who has been out in the garden all afternoon. She's been full of life recently and never stops, always walking around sniffing everything. She ate a few weeds etc but at the moment she tries to eat bird poo so I stop her. She also had a go at eating a few snail...
Hi, I've been using a normal R80 Reflector lamp as a heat source for my tortoise, but I'm finding they are needing to be replaced every month & a half or so, is this normal or am I buying crap bulbs?
What do other people do to provide heat? Recommendations please!!

Hi, I'm brand new to the forum and really need some expert advice on lighting for my Russian Horsfield tortoise. I've had him for three months (he's 3.5years old) and after a lot of reading have come to the conclusion the UVB Exo Terra compact 5.0 Glo coil lamp that came with him is inadequate...
hi, Henry has been hiding all the time in the last week or two and we are a bit worried about him. He will not come out of his hide in the morning on his own and will just generally stay in there all day unless you physically take him out and even then, will shortly afterwards go back in the...
Been thinking of getting a tortoise (most likely Horsfield) for a few months now, and keep looking online for what to get, and as usual it's just not 100% concise so thought I'd ask the question to get a proper answer.

I have a few questions about my Horsfield as I'm concerned about him if anyone can help.
