Tortoise Table

21 September 2012 - 09:14 AM

Hello :) I have a 2 year old Hermanns tortoise called Collin,I have had him from march and now realising no amount of research prepares you as every website I go on tells me different things.At first he was in a vivarium but soon realised it was less than good for him so we built a tortoise table ( 2mtres long and a metre wide) we have a uv tube suprended by a bracket wich is on for 12 hours alday and a basking light wich has a thermostat attached and we turn it down at night.could someone please tell me if we're doing the right thing as now the cold weather is drawing in I want to do my best to make sure he's ok.should I get a heat mat?he has got outside space aswell when it's warm weather,when it's cold he just hides and dosnt eat so I only take him out in dry,warm weather.any help would be much appreciated :) Ashleigh
