Hermann Tortoise Guidance

07 October 2016 - 11:11 AM

Hi There!


I am new to the forum but I am after a bit of guidance regarding my tortoise.  We have had him for just under a year now.  He is only 3 years old so quite little.  Throughout the summer we have had him outside which he seemed to be happy with but I am a bit apprehensive about the winter/colder months and am looking for some advice on the best way to keep him so he is happiest.  We have quite a large tortoise table which we had him in last winter but sometimes he wasn't very keen on really getting himself up and about.  The breeder who we got him from suggested not letting him hibernate until he is at least 5 years old because of their size when they are so young?  He eats happily and generally seems to be happy but just for my own reassurance if anyone has any general advice it would be great to hear as I read so many things which often seem to be conflicting.


Many thanks
