Quite a number of tubs of elbow grease needed, Sue; been there, done it, bought the t-shirt. Depends on what you use actually, certainly would not recommend a heat gun on old wood; on two occasions I’ve known the wood to smoulder unnoticed, causing a potential fire hazard. I always use a chemical paint stripper; One-Shot is the best, but you need to wear gloves and a mask as it’s pretty potent. Even the toughest of paint practically falls off after an hour or so.

Hi, Sue; yes, Harry’s busy zedding away in the fridge. He’s due out four weeks tomorrow; I can’t wait to have him back, I miss him terrible during the winter months.
Hoping all of yours are doing well x

Hi, Sabina,

I bought one for Harry a couple of years ago, it's excellent; keeps the temps exactly right. 

Here's a pic of it:




This is the smallest one they do, and is suitable for one tortoise only, or two babies.

The make is Lec, and they do a wide range in sizes and prices. 


Here's link to their website; click on the ones you are interested in, and it will give you all the specifications, and a list of distributors.






Hope this helps.

Hi, Sue,

No, it's his genuine birthday date; Harry hatched on June 21st 1967
