 TORTOISE TRUST

Coming Soon....

Revolutionary new tortoise housing design. Based on extensive studies over 8 years, providing enormous flexibility in temperature and humidity control, correct microclimates for a wide range of species, low cost self-build from readily available materials, natural UVB utilisation and ultra-low energy inputs. Fully backed up by extensive data and field testing in a range of conditions. As long ago as 1996 we proposed 'The Tortoise Table'. It has been a long time coming, but this is the next step.
