Those should be mounted horizontally (like in an aquarium hood), not vertically. They concentrate the rays out the end and could be harmful to your tortoise's eyes.

I'd get rid of the compact florescant. With enclosure this size Id go with 48" zoomed T8 reptisun 10% uvb at 12-15" distance from torts shell.

You need to replace the chicken wire with some 9 gauge chain link or heavy duty welded wire. Your dog has already gotten through it once and found a reward inside, it will have no problem doing it again.

Jacksonville. Underground is doing some crazy stuff with tegus. But I'm not a big fan of inbreeding just to make an animal the way you want. But to go make on that statement. There is a breeder in the uk it starts with a q. They are producing some crazy albino t+ red tegus

Hope you're not a jags fan. lol I saw that video of Underground working with the Tegus. I'm not really a fan of the inbreeding either.
