UV Lighting for Tortoises

 

Ultra Violet (UV) lighting is essential for tortoises.  UV light of the correct intensity is required to effectively metabolise vitamin D3 which is essential for the absorption of calcium.  A good intake of calcium is necessary for shell growth and replenishment regardless of age.  However it is particularly important for juvenile growing tortoises and egg-laying females for healthy hatchlings. These UV lights can also be used for growing plants and weeds. In general UVB 5.0 is suitable for most tortoises. Indian Stars should have UVB 10.0.
