What Heat Lamp Do You Use?

04 April 2016 - 08:43 AM

As its that time of the year for me to change my UV tube I am going to change my heat lamp aswell.


with the supermarkets not selling the old 60-100W reflector light i use for Bob's heat spot has anyone found an alternative source?


i dont like using the expensive heat laps from pet shops because i am cursed with them and they always blow for me after about 2 months, that’s why i changed to a reflector lamp last year and its only blown once and produces the same amount of heat for 20% the cost.






Building An Outdoor Enclosure

12 March 2016 - 05:55 PM

Hello all,


Now the weather is getting better its time to make my torts (Bob) outside enclosure,


he is now 1 1/2 years old and only goes in the garden when me or the wife are out with him.


I'm looking for advice on how to go about it, I have seen some amazing set ups you all have so the build is not my concern, will be about 5x7ft long but can extend longways if needed, I also wont to leave my self room for building a hide with heat at a later date.


can anyone recommend some flowers I can put in there as I have depleted our weed sources because of a unsuccessful hibernation ( only managed 2 weeks),


also I would love some recommendations on other plants I can have in my garden he can eat as I'm re-planting about 50% of it over the next couple of weekends


Thank you all.
