"Tortoise Heating Pad"
"This is an excellent heating pad for other animals besides pigs. I use mine for sulcatta tortoises which I have gotten from rescue shelters in New York. They do not hibernate and therefore must have heat when our temperatures get below 50 degrees. I have an enclosure they go into at night and the heating pad is on the floor. They may lay on it for several days inside until the weather breaks and they can get out to graze clover. Once the temp outside is high enough, they are already warm from the pad. I use the power control in order to keep the pad from getting too hot in the enclosure which is only 24"" in height. The dogs and cats also like to go inside the enclosure and lay against the turtles on the pad when the temps get low. The tortoises weigh up to 100 pounds and will push and claw the pad. My last one held up to being outside in weather for over 6 years. "
