    Outdoor Enclosure - Moveable, Lightweight Etc

    I live in the uk also, and don’t have much garden space to build a large enclosure… I have just bought this one for my Russian, they have the lid over so your baby will be safe if your not outside watching. But my tortoise is only 3 so he’s small.

    Tortoise sleeping and not eating

    My tortoise sleeps a lot and today he hasn’t woken up or eaten anything… is it safe for me to wake him and bathe him and give him food? Or should I let him wake up on his own? Sometimes he can go 2 days without waking up or food or a drink.

    Oh great thanks I will give it a try, my garden isn’t great for tony since it’s all stones and is quite sharp but we have a little grass which he goes on.

    Oh really I will check that out, Did zola ever have swollen eyes and did the gel work for that ? Do you have an outside enclosure for yours? I live in the uk aswell and I’m unsure on weather to let tony out every day in the summer or only when it’s really hot out…

    Great I shall buy that one, I checked for the solar meter 6.5 but on Amazon there over £200 so I can’t afford it right now but I will definitely keep it in mind for the near future. Oh okay when I was doing research some people said swollen eyes can be a vitamin a deficiency or respiratory...

    Yeah I definitely won’t be listening to any more YouTube recommendations again.. I know you said about using a cheap washing bowl and cutting a hole for a hide because it keeps it humid so I will do this in his new home and what plants are safe to put into his enclosure? Thank you Tom

    Thank you for all this information, I have purchased the Arcadia flood light you recommended, and for the UV bulb I have attached a photo to make sure it’s the correct one before I buy. Also what food do you recommend for a vitamin A deficiency? Or should I buy a supplement? Also I know you said...

    I bought it after seeing everybody say glass tanks are bad, and tony always bangs his head against the glass trying to get out… also his glass tank is only 60cm it’s way to small and it’s hard to find glass tanks that are a good size for a decent price. Thank you, everyone has helped a lot. It’s...

    Safe light for Russian?

    Hi, I have just bought a new tortoise enclosure and need a light which won’t cause any possible damage to his eyes. (They are very swollen already). I am currently looking at the mercury vapour all in 1 light. Is this safe? And do I need any other light in his house? Thank you!!

The light I use is from a reptile store but I have also...
