The PERFECT SRI LANKAN STAR TORTOISE CARE YOU NEED
Caring for a Sri Lankan Star tortoise for sale is reasonably easy, so long as you invest the time to learn. Sri Lankan Star tortoises, are medium-sized tortoises and therefore only require a medium-sized tortoise habitat, at full maturity of say 3×6′. though larger is always better. Multiple female Sri Lankan Star tortoises are housed together in groups of up to 6, but the size should be 4 cubic feet larger per female. Using a tortoise table, or tortoise house kit will work, just pay close attention to temperature and humidity. A baby tortoise, in general, will need higher humidity as the main variable for success.
Our biologist has compiled a fantastic Sri Lankan star tortoise care guide. Please be sure to view all aspects of Sri Lankan star tortoise care on the pages below:
SOME COMMON HABITAT Of THE STAR TORTOISE
Baby Sri Lankan Star tortoises can exist in something as small as a 24×12″ sweater box. Keeping humidity high is key, so these work. Using a fish tank is not necessary but also can work if set up properly. You will want to cover the sides so that the tort cannot see out, as that will cause him or her to become anxious and constantly try to escape via the clear see-thru side(s). We like to use the 24″x15″x48″long PVC style single glass front reptile cages available from reptile basics. For UVB fitting them out with a 36″ T5 10.0 fixture is easy.
SRI LANKAN STAR TORTOISE FOR SALE – TEMPERATURE
Baby Sri Lankan Star tortoises should be kept at an ambient temperature of 86 degrees. A cold spot of 80 is fine and a warm spot of 95 is also nice, however, the ambient temp remains the most important. Here at Turtle store, our main concern is the ambient temp and not getting too cold. We focus more on this than the temperature gradient that is so widely talked about. Finding that the tortoises’ theme to thrive with a median temperature of 86, we now maintain this throughout our daytime enclosure temperatures. Evening temps are allowed to drop into the high 70s, however with very slow-moving, humid air, it seems a tad warmer and “muggier” for the tortoises.
STAR TORTOISE UVB LIGHTING
UVB light exposure is extremely important for all tortoises, including baby Star large tortoise for salet ortoise. We recommend a Reptisun UVB 10.0 lamp, T5 (tube style). Screw-in lamps like the cheap spirals are not necessary and really do not have much of a radius of coverage. Think about the tortoise being outside, getting constant UVB and UVA from every angle. Now, think about the exposure they will get in their habitat inside or outside your home, and try to make them similar. Not easy, is it? Using a T5 high output lamp will give you the best scenario. Using the 10% lamp is good, however for distances 15-24″ above the tortoise, a 12% lamp is necessary Arcadia UVB lamps are the best in our opinion, though a tad more pricey, they also last twice as long.
