Hello

 

Have you ever used this as a source of heat for Hermann tortoises for outdoors? (In addition to pig infrared lamp for example)

 

I would be interested to hear your thoughts about it.

It is adjustable in height, gives radiant heat, low consumption, can be put on a thermostat to adjust the temp.

 

Thank you

 

Sabina

I've used a chick brooder as additional support indoors, overnight during winter, but they wouldn't give off enough heat outdoors to make any difference to the heat surrounding babies. Chicks huddle together to keep warm too, so this helps them.
