Water and Food Dishes

Water and food bowl provision is one of the most important things to get right for your tortoises. Ideally the water bowl should be large enough for your tortoise to bathe in but no deeper. The water level should cover their lower shell but be no higher so they can easily keep their head above the water level.  As tortoises do pass liquid into water bowls they ideally should be full or close to full at the correct water depth for your tortoise.  This is the safest way to prevent accidental drowning especially if the water bowl is outside where rain can fill it too.

Please take note of the internal depth and size measurements provided to make sure they are an appropriate depth and large enough to easily fit your tortoise into for impromptu bathing.  This is important for reducing the risk of dehydration because tortoises absorb water through their tail area (cloacca).  It is worth noting that most reptiles, including tortoises only pass urine if they have a plentiful supply of drinking water.

Repti Rock Tortoise Pools

These bowls have been designed for tortoises making them ideal water bowls because the size and depth are ideal for water baths.  They have a shallow slope at the front to allow easy access.  They are heavy so that they aren't easily moved or flipped over, unfortunately this makes them a it bit more expensive to post.  They should last longer than a plastic bowl because the smooth polished resin surface is easy to keep clean.

Depth and size measurements are provided to allow you to choose the bowls or dishes that are an appropriate depth and large enough to easily fit your tortoise into for effective water baths.

Exo-Terra Feeding Dish  
 
These feeding dishes are appropriate for use as water bowls and feeding dishes for tortoises. They are easy to clean and difficult for tortoises to move around so ideal. The only downside is that the largest one is only just large enough for a tortoise with a Straight Carapace Length of 25cm to have a bath. They are made of a hard set resin and are heavy and sturdy so not easily broken unless dropped on a hard surface.
