Indoor enclosure
Posted: 21/03/2009 by Paul

Ive noticed that indoor rabbit cages are used for keeping torts indoors, Does anyone else use these or recomend these, also would i need a heated mat or would a spotlamp and uv light be enough.

Hi, I have used these for hatchlings, and as temporary housing when we have fostered a small tort prior to it going to a permanent home. I think they can be very useful. I have also used them outside for the hatchlings to keep them safe from birds and other prey.

No heat mat is needed, I have used an Arcadia  UV compact tube and a spot lamp with a 60w bulb for heat, and in cooler weather I have used a ceramic lamp for the night time.
