We had a member here named Terry Allan Hall who passed away a few years back. He had several species of Testudo and he never brumated any of them for 20 years. He got babies from them every year.

If there are any species that MUST brumate, I don't know about them. Since I always brumate the temperate species, I have not tried to not brumate anything. I have done DTs, all the Testudo, and Chersina.
Do I use a ceramic oil heater or just a ceramic heater? It's starting to get cold so I need to get a heater in there. I won't bug you anymore tonight.

Radiant oil heaters are good for warming whole rooms. A ceramic heating element is good for just heating an area of the enclosure.

Tom,
By an element, do mean a regular heater or the ceramic heating bulb?
