Leopard Tortoise for sale – Lighting and Temperature
Leopard tortoises do not hibernate. In parts of their range, they may experience freezing temperatures and seek shelter in animal burrows. Also in most of their range, they experience a much narrower range of temperatures. Generally speaking, that’s between 70 and 100 degrees Fahrenheit.
For indoor care of a leopard tortoise, temperatures should be maintained between 75 and 90 degrees. Provide a basking spot of 95 degrees. Secondly, depending on the indoor air temperatures, a heat light may be required at night or during the day. Hot spots are important for the tortoise to thermoregulate and raise its temperature to optimal levels for digestion. Most importantly, exposure to natural sunlight or UVB light plays an important role in how the body absorbs and uses calcium. Above all, UVB light or natural sunlight allows the tortoise to produce vitamin D3.
Vitamin D3 is critical to the tortoise in its ability to absorb and use the available calcium. UVB can be obtained from fluorescent tubes specially made for reptile use or from mercury vapor bulbs, which also provide some heat. Lastly, if fluorescent tubes are used for UVB, a separate light may be required for heat for your baby leopard tortoise for sale.
