Cosy Tortoises Outdoor Tortoise Run Add-Ons to the All-Season Houses
The Cosy Tortoises Outdoor Tortoise Runs can be fitted to the All-Season Houses. One end is fitted to the house directly. The Tortoise Runs are secure and accessible with premium wood frame meshed side and removable meshed tops. They are constructed with solid tongue and groove wood cladding around the base to reduce your tortoise's natural instinct to try to escape. Rabbit Runs are not suitable because if your tortoise can see through mesh it will try to get through it and may hurt themselves or get stressed as a consequence. They are heavier in weight than rabbit runs and consequently are more difficult to burrow under or be lifted by your tortoise. The planed smooth wood used and plastic coated mesh is of high quality. The quality of the materials increases the security of the enclosure. The tops of the enclosures are removable and can be secured with hasp and staples. Hasp and Staples and Padlocks are also available on this page. Stain colour may vary as to shown in photos. Different colour options are available towards the bottom of this page for additional price. Free delivery on the tortoise run only when ordering an Add-on Tortoise Run with an All-Season House.

Double All-Season House with Sunroom
Two All-Season Houses-in-One that arrive fully assembled with the sunroom in the centre. The individual heated areas at each end have air vents for seasonal control. They are two separate houses that allow you to keep tortoises apart but beside each other. An optional internal door can be included to allow mixing of tortoises temporarily. This may be the ultimate solution to housing a breeding set of tortoises that require separation due to the mating behaviour of some species, or simply to give the females a break.

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.
