The Vividarium Tortoise Home
is a beautifully crafted habitat designed specifically for tortoises,
which not only benefits your pet’s health and welfare, but is also a
fantastic looking focal point worthy of any home!
Key Benefits & Features Include:
- EASY CLEAN : Manufactured from lightweight resin; which means it’s waterproof, it won’t rot, it’s easy to manoeuvre and easy to clean.
- BASKING LAMP SAFE : Designed
to be used with any hanging-type basking lamps, or clamp-lamps. The
Vividarium comes complete with a metal clip attached to the upper shell
to allow a lamp to be suspended underneath. (Lamp holder included with purchase).
- CABLE TIDY : cables from basking lamps etc are tucked away neatly in to the cable clamps secured on the rear of the Tortoise Home’s shell.
- INBUILT HIDE : cleverly built in to the head of the Tortoise Home is a 15cm retreat where a tortoise can hide out, reducing stress levels.
- CIRCULAR INTERNAL DESIGN :
When tortoises find 90 degree angles (every rectangular vivarium) they
instinctively try to climb up the walls (and escape) by "chimneying"
against the two sides.
Our Tortoise Home is oval, considerably lessening the chances of the tortoise trying to climb the sides.
- HEALTH BENEFITS : Open-top design;
allowing maximum air flow and ventilation, which mimics a tortoise’s
natural wild environment. Scientifically proven to reduce the risks of
upper respiratory infections associated with keeping tortoises in closed
vivaria, where ventilation becomes problematic.
open-top design also allows for true thermoregulation properties too,
as the environment will be hot under a basking source, but cool away
from the basking source. This allows a tortoise to move in and out of
the different temperature zones as required, as they would in nature.
a tortoise kept in a closed-type vivaria will have problems
thermoregulating its body temperature, leading to accelerated growth
patterns and often metabolic bone disease.
- BEAUTIFUL AESTHETICS :
Individually hand finished with stunning airbrushed glossy paintwork,
so each one is as individual as a finger print. A true focal point for
