Hi everyone, we got our first ever tortoise today so are still very unsure about it although we are researching constantly but I was just wondering if we should leave both the heat lamp and heat mat on overnight as well as during the day?
Thank you x

Hello and welcome! :D

We'll need a little more info to answer that question. What kind of tortoise do you have? Are we talking about an indoor enclosure? Do you have a thermometer handy to record temps?

...and the age/size of the tortoise too.

It is quite ok to have a bit of a drop in temperature between day and night. But if you have a baby tortoise, you will want to keep it warm at night as well as during the day.
