I love that room! And the enclosures look roomy for each species. I'm trying to clear out all the books and shelves in one of my bedrooms so I can have a reptile room too. But mine will only house incubators and babies and sick animals.

Thanks Yvonne.
Weather in Ireland is not ideal for keeping reptiles outdoor's all year round so I badly need it upgrade the room this year . The plan was to try to use as much space in the room as posible, wich I think we achived .

Wow that looks fab.
Go careful when having rocks or slate under heat lamps as they will get too hot. Have u ever put ur hand on it after the light has been on it for a few hours. It's boiling. Will end up burning the torts belly. I don't put anything under heat lamps, only soil.
Bet it's rather warm in that room. Looks great thou.
How are u managing to get a cooler end for torts with so many tables in there ?

I have to be honest, I keep tortoises for a few years now and so far I have never burnt there plastron ,carapace or any other part of there body, also soil can get as hot as rock, and they have the space to move away if it get too hot for them. I use 70W and 100W bulbs that I have hanging at different heights probably that's the key. The room temperature is between 23-25 degrees and 32-37 under the lights during the day and 19-20 at night .
