This Oak effect table has been made to provide an ideal environment for pet tortoises. Its large open space allows plenty of room to roam and regulate temperatures and lets you to create an interesting habitat. Open top tables are much better than vivariums for tortoises. This is because most pet tortoises require low humidity and a great deal of ventilation. There is also a separate bedding area so that your pet can feel secure and sleep. The bedding area has a hinged lid to allow easy cleaning.
Clamp lamp and reflector
The clamp lamp can either be suspended from the built in bracket or clamped onto the lower walls of the tortoise table. It is made from a temperature resistant ceramic material that insulates the wires from the heat of the bulb. A built in reflector means that the useful UV output of the bulb is doubled. Heat is also efficiently focused in one direction.
Heat and Ultra-violet bulb
Designed to mimic natural sunlight, the 125w mercury vapour bulb provides UV light and also heat. This is because tortoises need UV light to properly metabolize calcium. The correct UV levels are necessary to make sure your pet can grow a strong shell and bones.
