All eastern hermanns. We house them separately. Late summer and early spring they spend a lot of time in the spare bedroom. It can get very messy as one of the boys hate being in the house. During that time of year I do find it a lot of work. They are great 👍 I'm so lucky to have them.
Can anyone tell me please if spruce bark is ok as a substrate and
can I use a Che for basking? I do use Arcadia Jungle Dawn LED bars for daylight.
I can only find Arcadia flood bulbs in the UK at £ 3.99 per bulb. Crazy price for a bulb.
Thank you all for your help. Today we have had the pest control out for the second time in eight months, he can not see a point of entry. Will take all the advice given to help keep are torts safe. All tortoise are locked away at night, I'm also checking around for any damage to night boxes.
We are having problems with rats in our loft space which is on the same floor as my tortoise room. My question is are the rats coming in after the torts. I'm sure I don't need to tell you how worried we are any advice would be appreciated.
Thanks for your help. I have two adults and 3 baby Hermanns all houses separately. The mvb 100w and 80w are from last year I started using t5 last August and find them much better. I use t5 for babies only a couple hrs a day if and when needed. I'm loving t5 bulbs and solar meter 6.5r.
How do I know if solar meter is correct????
Today at 11.30 the sun was out but not very strong the reading I got was 5.5.
I have tested Acadia mvb 80w at a distance of 13in 33cm and have a reading of 6.5 does this sound right?
Hi. I would like help selecting the correct meter for my Hermanns tortoises. I have attached images of some I have found. Also can you explain the numbers for me some say 5 6.5 8 10?
I live in uk so weather isn't the best. so as I understand it as long as the tortoise get 2/3hrs Sun or outside...
