Table top Tortoises vivarium ..

This idea come to me when I saw An Advertiesement in reptiles magazine called ( Practical reptiles keeping )  from the UK ..

Tn this advertisment the vivarium called ( THE VIVIDARIUM TORTOISE HOME ) they used a hanged  lighting with open roof .. I liked  the idea and I have some tortoises ( Indian Tortoises ) .. so I decided to made one similar .. 

Lighting :  The lighting bulbs will be hinged types by PVC half inch pipes with fittings .. All wires will be run through the pipes it self ..


then I colored the pipes by Cement Brown color only ..


Two lighting hoods will be used one for the UV light and one for the Heat / Baskin Light ..
