Questions & Answers for Zoo Med Zoo Med Tortoise House

Question

Can you use the Zoo Med Repti Ramp Bowl (listed under accessories to the Zoo Med Tortoise House) be used inside the house w/ enough room for roaming?

I am looking into getting a Russian Tortoise, and want to purchase the Zoo Med Tortoise House. I need to put in a bowl of water for drinking and soaking the shells. I saw the accessory and thought it would be perfect. If I add this bowl in, will there be enough room for my tortoise to walk around et cetera?

I use the Repti Ramp Bowl in this house for my 4 inch box turtle. He needs daily soaks and outgrew other bowls. He appears to have room to explore.

The cage is 36x24.. plenty of room for the Repti Ramp soaking dish. I use the same dish in a hex shaped cage about the same size and they get around just fine!

I don't know how big your tortoise is but I have three baby desert tortoises in one. This is big enough for them. If you would like you can get two and put them together. I like this house because it protects my tortoises from birds or anything else. I have mine outside. I don't put my tortoises in tubs in till its time for them to hybernate. They need sunlight with some shade. you want to get close to there normal habitat and a tub really isn't close to it at all. Tortoises love to rome and explore.

I have three baby Tortoise and I put a small saucer plate in there for water and another one for food. they still have room to move around. As for heat lamps I have them outside for full sun it warms up the sand so they really don't need a lamp. when it gets too cold outside I move them inside to hibernate. I use a heat pad under a tank so they have some darkness and are still warm.

I hope this helps someone out. :)

No. If you want to waterproof the bottom, do what I did. Run a bead of caulking around the inside seams(where the sides meet the bottom). Put 2 coats of polyurethane on the floor. If you plan on using it out side I would also put 2 coats of polyurethane on the outside. I'm very happy with mine.
