    Caring for redfoots in the northeast means I have to keep them indoors 4-6 months a year. Setting up high humidity, sunrise/sunset, and good ambient temperatures for 4 tortoises has always been a challenge - even with a closed chamber enclosure.

    Roughly 5 years ago, I invested in a Herpstat 4. At the time, this was the top end model they sold and I paid dearly for it. This unit regulates all the heat, humidity, and lighting in my closed chamber (4x8 feet). In the 5 years I've had it, there have been no issues. It's drastically reduced the amount of work I have to invest in the climate control of my indoor enclosure. It's been a life changer for me and my tortoises and I'd recommend one to anyone that asks.
