CARING FOR TORTOISES

Day time temperatures should be between 88-90 degrees fahrenheit. The max number of hides in terrarium should be two. One for the cool side and the other for the hot. A water bowl should be added, but it should be a shallow (or thin sized) dish. You can make your own if you would like.

Diet:

Romaine lettuce, spring mix, kale, and other vegetables. Fruits should only be given as 2% of their diet. 

Cage mates:

You can have two in the same cage. Just keep in mind that means a very large enclosure is needed or fights will break out. Best to only stick with one.

Substrate:

repti-bark

Cage size:

40 gallon tank or bigger
