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 (same size house to same size Tortoise Run must be used). 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 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.

Cosy Tortoises Heat and Light Package
Electrical Installation Package - UV light and heat lamp timers with one digital controller
The electrics can be installed into the All-Season House to save you the hassle of drilling holes and installing extra parts and fittings. A heating programmer unit will be fitted in an outdoor waterproof box on the outside of the tortoise house at the back under the eaves. The heating programmer is needed to control when you want the heat lamp/thermostat and UV light unit to switch on and off. If buying the Electrical Pack with this Electrical Installation Package then the UV unit will be fitted and wired for you running to the programmer unit. The electrical installation will be tested by a qualified electrician. Note that you will still need an electrician to provide a power supply to the Tortoise House via the supplied outdoor plug (connected through the waterproof box to the heating programmer) or by replacing the plug with a suitable alternative. The plug supplied will be a normal house plus (different from photo). The plug will need to be protected from the weather. See advice from an electrician.
