Topics I've Started

My tortoises have just gone out into their summer enclosure this past month but their growth lines seem to suggest really fast growth with so much access to weeds! Is this ok?? It hasn't been so prominent in past years and I know slow growth is encouraged!

Tortoise Nipping

18 February 2018 - 05:07 PM

Hello all, I've joined a Facebook group for tortoise owners and a lot of people complain that their Hermann torts nip them... Chase them to bite their feet... won't let them bath them etc. Have I just picked out with my tortoises as they come go me and eat from my hand, love having their heads and shells tickled whilst I bath them and are generally pleasant and a pleasure to be around... It hadn't crossed my mind that they could be any other way!! Just curious about everyone else's experiences!!

General Shell Health

I was just wondering if anyone could take a look at my tortoises and just see, from looking, if their shells look right and just generally if they appear healthy? They are 5years old and weigh 210g and 216g. There's so much conflicting advice out there. I just would really Appreciate reassurance... or advice if not looking as should! They are very friendly tortoises. Always come over to us when we go near the cage (looking for more food probably) and are happy wandering round the garden (usually following me or my daughter) when I can supervise them out of the enclosure. Is this normal, happy, healthy tortoise behaviour? KateAttached File  20170526_112310.jpg   71.6KB   0 downloads
