Hi, i use a tortoise table i always have from the day they hatch untill they go outside, a tortoise just needs a basking spot which is under the lamp to warm up the rest of the table needs to be different temperatures so they have the choice of where they want to be, what are you using now. :)

I had a tortoise table but I have since moved to a large rabbit cage that is 120 x 58 I've seen people here using the same style of set up. I'm asking because people from the 'tortoise forum' said that my enclosure is not suitable because it wont keep the humidity and heat.http://imgur.com/a/s3Tsdthis is the current set up

Hello
Thank you for the picture. It is quite dark and hard to see the inside of the cage

Please do you mind posting some other pictures?

Thank you

Sabina

The light is off these were taken last night at around 7pm. My tortoise goes to bed at 5 and wakes up at 6-7. I dont used the CHE. I bought it just to have it for the winter.

I think your enclosures fine, the only thing i would say is to move the heat lamp over a bit more to one end so you have a warm end and a cool end, does the light give off enough light to light up the cage and have you took the temp under it. :)
