Thanks for all of the advice. I think I'm just being overly protective as he buried himself in the garden the year before last and I didn't see him for 8 months. He emerged on a sunny day in April looking like a mud coloured rock 😀.

I think I will do that with the shed then and just get a couple of basking lamps and a heater. I'll let you know how I get on.

Thanks again ladies xx

Thanks for your help, I'd seen a couple of Karen's posts which was where I got the idea for the tubular greenhouse heater. That's great I'll get on of those.

To be honest he spent most of the summer outside last year, I only bring him in of a night and put him in the tortoise table of an evening to make sure he doesn't go missing as he likes to bury himself in the garden.

I hadn't thought of putting a cat flap in the shed, will run it past the husband and see what he thinks.

Can I ask what month you put your tortoises outside then as I tend to leave him inside until about May as I worry about him? He's hibernated for the last 4 years, I'm about to wake him up this weekend so I'm getting things ready for him this week.


I've attached an image for you. This one was last year before he hibernated.
