Hello,

My name is Joan and I have been a Vet tech for 30+ years with special interest in Reptiles and Reptile Rescue.

Can you tell me if the tortoise is housed inside?

What type of diet do you feed?

Supplements?

If inside UVB light? Florescent tube or compact coil bulb, strength, age of bulb?

Basking light?

Temps in the enclosure?

Joan
