Hello! I just got myself a baby elongated tortoise, around 2-3 inches. Unfortunately while setting up his lights the other day, the 75 watt bulb I had for him tapped the table and broke the wiring inside it so it won’t turn on. Thankfully I had a 25 watt red light bulb on hand but now I worry that because of the change in temperature during his time of getting used to his new environment might be dangerous for him, or that the temperature is too low for his humidity, while I wait to be able to purchase another bulb. Please help i’m so worried!!

Look around to see if you have a incandescent that you can do without for a couple days. Porch, lamp, ceiling,. An appliance bulb in the oven or refrigerator which are usually 40 watts which will put a little more heat than a 25 watt bulb.

You saying you don't anybody to bring you a bulb? Meanwhile, you can steal a bulb out of a lamp or light from your house. Monday is too long for them to be cold
