Tortoise Kits

The essential equipment you need.

Basic Tortoise Starter Kit

The 36” x 15” Tortoise kit is designed as more of a starter set up to temporarily house a tortoise until it grows large enough to live in an adult-sized enclosure. This kit is suitable for most types of tortoise, though for faster growing, or larger species it may not last long before the tortoise outgrows it. As a rough guide, this set up may be used for a Hermann’s, Mediterranean Spur Thighs, or Horsfield’s tortoise up to approximately 2-3 years of age.

This kit includes a 36" x 15" wooden ND vivarium, heating provided by a heat bulb, UVB lighting, a small water bowl, substrate and a thermometer!

This is a slightly larger enclosure than the standard 36” x 15” kit and will give your tortoise a bit more freedom to move around and may last a little longer.

This kit includes a 36" x 18" wooden ND vivarium, heating provided by a heat bulb, UVB lighting, a small water bowl, substrate and a thermometer!

Standard Tortoise Starter Kit

The 48” x 15” Tortoise kit is designed as an intermediate starter kit to temporarily house a tortoise until it grows large enough to live in an adult-sized enclosure. This enclosure is larger than the 36” set ups and you will therefore get more life out of it and it will also give your tortoise more space to roam around.

This kit includes a 48" x 15" wooden ND vivarium, heating provided by a heat bulb, UVB lighting, a small water bowl, substrate and a thermometer!

Deep Tortoise Starter Kit

The 48” x 18” Tortoise kit is an upgrade to the 48” x 15” set up and is primarily designed as an intermediate starter kit to temporarily house a tortoise until it grows large enough to live in an adult-sized enclosure. This enclosure is a few inches deeper and taller than the standard 48” set up. The extra space gives your tortoise more room to move around and the slightly taller glass front makes it easier for you to see in and observe your tortoise’s behaviour. This kit is suitable for most types of tortoise, though for faster growing, or larger species it may not last long before the tortoise outgrows it. As a rough guide, this set up may be used for a Hermann’s or Mediterranean Spur Thighs tortoises up to approximately 3 years of age. This enclosure may be used as a minimum size for a permanent home for a single Horsfield’s tortoise.

This kit includes a 48" x 18" wooden ND vivarium, heating provided by 2 heat bulbs, UVB lighting, a small water bowl, substrate and a thermometer!
