#59377 Hibernation Tortoise Not Moving

Posted by mildredsmam on 04 November 2013 - 12:20 PM

hi they do normally move when you touch them by pulling their leg in a little, the movement is only slow.

does her eyes look sunk in at all.

are you sure she hasn't moved, if she was mine and was totally limp and lifeless I would take her out and leave her in room temperature.

hopefully sue ( wizzasmum ) will be on soon who will be able to help more. x

#56832 Hello New To The Forum

Posted by mildredsmam on 21 April 2013 - 09:57 AM

H could you help me out with choosing a heat bulb I have been looking at an infared one as in the classroom another bright light would be too distracting

hi you need to use a bright light, infared bulbs are no good for tortoises, you need the table to be as light as possible.

you can just use a household spot bulb that you get from asda, morrisons etc for a couple of pounds.

then just have the lamp at the right height so you have a basking temp of 32. :)

hi welcome to the forum. :)

heat mats are no good for tortoises as they need the heat to come from above, so I would remove it as soon as you can.

when you do your new table its best to have your heat bulb and uv at the same end, they both need to be left on for 12 hours then turn them off they don't need any heat at night.

hope that helps. :)
