Hello From Hermione!

17 October 2015 - 11:58 PM

Hello! 10 days ago I become the proud owner of Hermione, a six year old Hermann's tortoise. Like all newbies, I am both besotted and overly anxious, so I hope you don't mind me asking a few questions!
Hermione is 266 grams and approx. 4.5" in length (Can't be more specific until I've bought a tape measure!). She is having daily baths, pooing and passing urates well. She loves red lettuce and clover, but these are only given occasionally- I've trialled dandelions, plantain, thistle, geraniums, rose, lavender and African violet, but she only liked the thistle! I'm hoping she will grow to love her diet and I can find new things she likes.
My main concern is, is her weight about right for her size and age? I would attach a photo but I don't know how! I'm not planning on hibernating her this year as I want her to settle in first.
Many thanks for your help! Chris and Hermione
