A: You will need a heat lamp and U.V light to keep a tortoise. It is also a good idea to have a thermometer so you can keep an eye on the temperature. Tortoises should always be given a calcium and vitamin supplement. You will also need bedding and food and water dishes. Hermanns and Horsfields are both very good tortoises and only grow to around 20cm
