Product Information

Our Swell Bronze Tortoise Kit comes with a VivExotic Tortoise Table, as well as all the electrical equipment you'll need, saving you the messing around of choosing all the items. It includes minimal decoration, but focuses more on the essential items you'll need to get going.

We'd recommend to purchase some more decoration, as well as disinfectant, and potentially some tortoise pellet food.

What's in this kit?

The Tortoise table, measuring 90cm x 45cm x 21.5cm (35.4" x 18" x 8.5"), means that the tortoise has great ventilation, and receives UVB from a combined Mercury Vapour Bulb, which is held on an adjustable bracket, so that you can adjust the height of the bulb to ensure the correct temperature is reached. As with other Mercury Vapour Bulbs, you cannot use a thermostat with this bulb, as it will diminish the UVB that is produced, so the only way to control the temperature is by moving the bulb height.

Also in this kit is a small heat mat, to go in the bedding area of the table, which is to be used with the enclosed thermostat, meaning you can safely set a night time temperature for overnight. We also include two thermometers, so you can check the temperatures of both ends of the table, ensuring you're always in the right parameters.

For substrate, we have included beech chips, which are easy to replace and spot 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 hide and also 2 small plants to provide a little decoration.

    The table is fine. The accessories are not usable. The light bulb doesn't fit in the lamp holder and land holder won't connect to adjustable pole. Several emails and photos sent to explain the problem but no response from Swell. Disappointing service

    I have rated you as a 5 because everything I ordered came unbroken and well packaged and your full set up is brilliant for beginners as you don’t need to worry about finding indevigal things if you don’t really know what you your doing
