My Tortoise Table

Just finished it, and now ready for some much deserved fun with it.
Big thanks to all who have shared their experience and knowledge and helped me build it.
Slightly bigger than I expected it to be.... :)

What type of tort do you keep in there?

Where is the UV? Is there an MVB in that lamp holder?

Soil, good, just keep it nice and deep :2thumb:

I would say that generally if the tortoise is already 4" then the enclosure is already too small and will need upgrading pretty soon, but may be OK if you also have an outdoor enclosure?

its just a standard bulb atm until I get the tort. then gonna have an exo clamp lamp with a combined bulb in, just using that for effect and to bake the substrate in the basking area, so it's all ready for when s/he arrives.

the overall size of the enclosure is 75cmx75cmx20cm deep, but will have a 6'square outdoor enclosure sorted by next week, got the screened top soil delivered on monday.

Yes that is a really small tortoise table isn't it!! Most people keep young torts in table twice that size, but it's cool about the combined bulb and the outdoor enclosure though, you'll have to post pics of the new arrival. You must be excited!

Here is my indoor enclosure - I have had to split it between my two Hermann's as my large male keeps perstering my tiny female (guessing sexes).



This is my large makeshift outdoor enclosure - it will be made properly at the weekend!

Hi, I am seriously considering getting a mediterraen spur thigh tortoise. If I get a little one, I need to keep him/her in an indoor enclosure when it is cold, what size is appropriate? I have a completely enclosed garden with no other pets and it is impossibly for any other animals to get into the garden (other than birds), so would want to have them outside most of the time when it is warm. I have an outdoor power point already for a basking lamp/heating lamp.

Indoor table needs to be as big as possible really - mine are 5ft x about 3ft. Congratulations on the new guy - when's he coming?? Ive got 2 spur thighs and they are lovely : victory:
