My Female Big Biggi Starts In A New Year.

21 March 2018 - 09:01 AM

Biggi showed up, first wet with condensation, because her carapax was still cold and the sun heated the coldframe up to 35 in the sleeping area and 45!!! in the area with sun.

In the afternoon I offered her 8 different herbs which I could easily find in the garden. She ate them - and afterwards another portion.

Hello, I Am From Germany....

Hi there,

I am from Germany, live near Cologne. I´ve been keeping Greek (Hermann) tortoises since 1979. They live in the garden all year long. Now in winter, they hibernate in the ground, under those cold frames for plants.

I have registered here to learn how you in "British weather" keep your tortoises and which species (Hermann-, Horsfield- oder other tortoises) you prefer in Britain.
