IMPORTANT NOTE ABOUT LIGHTING
The correct lighting is essential for the health and wellbeing of your tortoise. This kit is ONLY good if you want to keep the tortoise in this box at night times. Your tortoise does require sunlight, either natural or via specialist lighting. The Advanced kit we sell (Search Amazon: B008LW2KI4) does have the correct lighting needed for keeping a tortise inside.
However your tortoise is a natural forager, and needs to be in the garden when it's warm enough to allow this. Another important point is, if you keep them in a green house, UV-A and UV-B can NOT penertrate glass, so you would still need the correct lighting.
Please call us on 01233 50 20 80 if you need ANY help with tortoises, we run a rescue centre as well, and have a great knowledge on chelonians.
