Wood tortoise tables (tortoise enclosures) are usually the preferred way of providing indoor housing for tortoises. The only exception is Redfoot Tortoises that can be housed in waterproof housing made from plastics, glass or fibreglass providing that the tables are large enough. Essentially the Tortoise Table should have a large floor space. Typically UV lighting and heat lamps are suspended over the table. UV lighting and heat lamps can be purchased from Cosy Tortoises direct.
Cosy Tortoises Mesh Tops
Mesh Tops are available for the Tortoise Tables. This provides protection for your tortoises from animals and young children as well as protecting them from heatlamp and UV electrics. Hasp and Staples as well as padlocks are available for these Mesh Tops. The Juvenile Tortoise Table comes with Mesh Side Extensions as an option to allow extra height for the heat lamp to sit under the mesh if necessary. We would not recommend suspending a heat lamp above the mesh top because the mesh is plastic coated. Free postage when ordering together with a Tortoise Table.
Master Aluminium Padlocks
The Master Aluminium Padlocks are ideal for securing the mesh tops to the Tortoise Tables with hasp and staples. The padlocks are black with anti-scratch covering, aluminium body and a hardened steel shackle. Matching key head for easy identification. Each top requires 2 Padlocks to secure it, so for each Tortoise Table size these are the number required; Juvenile 2, Small 2, Sub-adult 2, Medium 4, Large 4 and extra Large 8. Free postage with this item.

Cosy Tortoises Colour Upgrade
All of the Cosy Tortoises Tortoise Tables are a natural pine wood colour. However for an additional charge, you can upgrade to one of the 12 colours shown here. The paint has a wax enriched formula which protects against water damage. This also has UV filters which prevents greying and maintains the colour for longer. Please note the internal surface of the tortoise table will be not be painted. Only the outside of the four panels will be painted. When you order please send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org stating which colour you have chosen for your tortoise table. Please click here to view colour chart.
Cosy Tortoises cannot guarantee that the paint colour chosen will look the same as displayed on the website, due to variation in product colour by the manufacturer and natural variations of the wood. Cosy Tortoises applies at least one coat of preservative wood paint and recommends further coats are applied after delivery according to the paint manufacturer's instructions. At least one further coat of paint is recommended so that any movement of external surfaces in transit are sealed thoroughly to ensure the house is weather-proof.
