post hibernation

by Joan

How do other people keep their tortoises hot enough? I have a vivarium 3ft x 15ins with 3 in but the other is too big to put in as well, I have bubble wrapped my greenhouse and put 2 250 watt heat and light bulbs in but she keeps bury herself, under the lamps its very hot but the background heat is only about 60F, I hibernated them in a fridge and got them up beginning of Febuary, I don't want to lose her what should | do.

thank you Joan

Heat lamps are one way to keep the space warm. You can also put a heat pad under the floor. If you ask at a pet shop, you can find out how much space you can heat and to what temperature with any given pad. Be sure you don't overheat the space.
