What Time To Turn Off At Night?t

10 December 2013 - 12:02 PM

Hi all,

I haven't got my hatchling yet, but will have on Thursday. I just want to make sure im fully prepared, and know what to do.

The new rabbit cage i got delivered today is 120cm in length, 59cm in Width. For the lighting/heat, i've gone for a Powersun uvb basking lamp 100W.

few questions,

Is this "all in one" going to be enough lighting, if placed in the near far corner?

Should i get a tube?

Do i switch the lamp off at night time? to replicate day/night. IF SO, what time do i have it set back on in the morning?

I will have a timer socket in place.


Thanks in advance 

Any Breeders In The North East?

08 December 2013 - 04:02 PM

Hey, I've recently joined these forums, if you want to know a tad more,I've made a topic in introductions.

I'm currently looking for a Hermann hatchling. I've turned my back towards the local petshop after doing some research in the last few weeks.

Does anyone know of any breeders located in the North East Lincolnshire area?

I'm willing to travel up to 40 to 50 miles at most. Obviously the closer the better!

Thanks in advance.

Hi all, I have been monitoring this forum for the past couple of weeks. Find out about it from Google when searching for Hermann tortoise information as such, and it was this forum that seemed to keep popping up!

My name is Ty (middle name is liam). I've been researching the Hermann tortoise for the last few weeks and have finally decided that I want to add an addition to our family.

I currently have most of the set up... Set up (almost). And in the next week, il be hoping to find a breeder. I have been searching for the past week and I've had no luck unfortunately. So il be making another Topic, in the breeder section and hopefully have some luck there!

I'm based in Grimsby, North East Lincolnshire.
