All indoor boarding vivariums have 5% uv lighting and thermostatically controlled heat lamps with guards. We use Habistat Repti-Turf grass pellets for substrate unless customers request otherwise. Please advise when completing the enquiry form any specific requests.
For baby and small tortoises we use / offer – 1.5ft to 3ft Vivariums
For larger Tortoises we have – 4ft 6ft and an 8ft Vivariums, part artificial grass / grass pellet substrate.
We feed a wide range of salad / vegetable items varied according to species. Fresh dandelions are also usually available / offered.
In Summer Months – we have outdoor pens with natural shade and dry shelter where your tortoise can roam free during the day and is locked away during the night. Suitable for medium and large tortoises. Outdoor pen use is subject to seasonal temperatures and species requirements.
Medium to large tortoises will usually be boarded outdoors as above, unless customers have requested indoor spaces.
We are not currently able to accommodate boarding for giant tortoises.
Photo / Video Updates
We are happy to send photos or video of your pets while they are staying with us. Please send a text or email during boarding so we can let you know how they are or send photos etc.
A full range of live or frozen food is included in the boarding price. Special diets can be accommodated by arrangement or request. We can usually supply food after boarding when you collect your pet so you have enough to feed until you can visit your usual supplier.
Medication / Health Issues
We can administer medications, for a small fee, if agreed with us at the time of booking. Any medications must be supplied by the owners along with information about the animals health and condition.
We have a local specialist exotics Vet should their services be required. We will also contact the animal owner where possible to advise health status / treatment requirements.
