Tortoise tables help and advice
The perfect space for a tortoise trek
Despite their steady pace, Tortoises require more room to move around than you might think. We have a great collection of tortoise houses and tables to match their needs. Our Tortoise enclosures and tables feature many high-quality products from leading reptile brands like HabiStat, VivExotic and Zoo Med.
What are tortoise tables?
Tortoise tables are large enclosures, a little bit like rabbit runs, designed to allow tortoises to roam and move around for exercise and stimulation. They are normally open-topped or feature mesh walls to create a constant airflow and can be adapted for use either indoors or outside. Most of our tortoise tables are flat-packed and require some assembly, as well as the addition of lighting and other items before housing a tortoise.
Why should I buy tortoise tables?
Although the smallest tortoise can live comfortably within a large vivarium, the majority are only comfortable with a much larger area to explore. This is because tortoises have evolved a natural love of exploration and so to be stimulated and happy they need to be constantly on the go. Tortoise tables also help protect tortoises from respiratory diseases, which they are particularly vulnerable to, as they are open allowing for constant airflow.
What are the main types of tortoise tables?
Like most furniture, tortoise tables mostly vary in design and material. However, there are a few differences in our range worth looking out for. You’ll see tortoise tables, which are designed to permanently house a tortoise (such as the VivExotic Viva Tortoise Table Oak), as well as tortoise play runs (like the Zoo Med Tortoise Play Pen) which are designed for temporary outdoor use. Tortoise like to be outside when possible but they can’t handle low temperatures so you’ll need an indoor tortoise table and then either a play run to move them to or another tortoise table.
What should I look for?
When buying a tortoise table the key is personal taste, all of the tables in our range will suit most tortoises so feel free to be picky and choose the one that’s right for your home.
What else should I buy with a tortoise table?
When buying a tortoise table you will need to buy some accessories to make it safe and suitable for your tortoise, these will include lighting, heating, bedding, decor and food. If this is your first tortoise, we recommend buying a tortoise starter kit, which has everything you need to get your new pet set up.
