Our Swell Silver Tortoise Kit comes with a VivExotic ReptiHome vivarium and all the electrics required for this size of habitat. Within this we have gone the extra mile to ensure that your pet has everything it needs, including a thermostat and the best level of UVB lighting for a standard European tortoises (African tortoises, such as Sulcata's, may require a higher level of UVB), as per UV-Tool Guide published on the Journal of Zoo and Aquarium Research. We'd recommend to purchase some more decoration, as well as disinfectant, and potentially some tortoise pellet food.
What's in this kit?
The kit comes with the VivExotic ReptiHome Medium, measuring 86cm x 37.5 x 42 (34" x 15" x 16.5"). This provides space for small tortoises to move around, though will not be suitable for anything more than around 18months - 2years old. There are two thermometers included, which can be set up at either end of the habitat, to ensure you can read the temperatures from each end accurately, and know the gradient in the vivarium. The heat is provided from a basking bulb, with a thermostat to ensure that its safe at all times. There is then a separate UVB kit to provide everything your tortoise needs.
For substrate, we have included wood chips, which are safe and easy to clean. There is also a feeding dish and flat water bowl to provide easy access in and out for your pet. As added extras, we have included a tub of calcium to sprinkle over your tortoise food, two hides (for each end of the table) and also small plants to provide a little decoration and coverage.
