    Custom built tortoise table help

    Would something like this work for testudo outside for an hour to two about 60F? Will it keep them safe from predators like raccoons, hawks, and snakes. Is it okay to follow up like this on someone else’s thread? https://www.lllreptile.com/products/9912-zoo-med-tortoise-house

    Help Please:: Small Manufacturer of Hides Asked Me Sizes

    Hi All, I saw some custom and printed hides I liked on Etsy. They are custom 3-D printed colored, and one was covered in eco earth and moss, very naturalistic. Problem is the hides had small openings, too small for even my Western Hermann’s. The small manufacturer said he would be interested...

    I’m not that handy. Could I do the pipe one with a regular saw? I found this, and the manufacturer accepts custom sizes. What do you think? I’m trying to save for a SMART Enclosure by Mark so I don’t want to spend too much though I do want the right item. Thanks...

    Yikes, the bin is only 11” tall! I was burning my poor baby! No wonder! I think I found a riser. It’s made specifically for Arcadia but the tallest unless custom is only 5.5 inches added height. Do I need more? And that t he bull to surface measurement? Thanks.

    I don’t have a UV meter. I guess I’ll have to save up. I’ll pack the coir. I took your advise to do it before but Matteo had a hard time digging and started sleeping on top. Guess I did it too hard! I’ll try to do it again. Thank you!

    Oh, my! I’ll look for a hanger of some sort. I do have both real and fake plants on order right now. He had some fake ones before, and come to think of it, he did spend time under them. I removed them because they got brittle and smelled under the light. I’m planning to also order to marjoram...

    Hi All, Matteo is a Western Hermann’s tortoise. He’s in a Christmas tree bin. He was a few months old when I got him and he’s now a out 16 months old. As a hatchling, he seemed fine with the Arcadia light. He’d started to come out and wander areound his bin. A few months ago, he began spending...

    Fruit Flies, Is No Substrate Okay?

    So I read that phorid flies are actually dangerous disease carriers. I had started to leave food for Matteo overnight because he wakes up at night and he’ll wake up earlier in the morning than I do. I just found decomposing greens in his soil that he had buried! Yuck! No more! He’ll have to...
