About Me

I am very grateful to take care of two Hermann tortoises (Testudo Hermanni Boettgeri) hatched in September 2015, and they have been with me since 21 August 2016. Sue ("Wizzasmum" on the forum) is the very experienced tortoise keeper/breeder and fab lady who incubated the eggs and reared them as tinnies for about a year before I got them.

 

During warm months (April to September) they live 24/7 in a large outdoor secured enclosure (about 10 square meters) with a cold frame (1 square meter) made of 16mm thick Alltop plexiglas (UV transmissible) + electrics (heat lamp, heater), and when non-hibernating they have a large indoor enclosure.

 

They hibernate in a laboratory fridge (refrigeration method), this fridge keeps the temperature continuously constant at 5 degrees Celscius during the whole hibernation, with no variations. 5 degrees Celscius is the optimum temperature for Hermann tortoises in hibernation.

 
My interests: Naturopathic nutrition, biology, physiology and biochemistry, Iyengar yoga, meditation and mindfulness, swimming, food, cooking, baking, growing flowers and plants, nature in general, travel. Metaphysics and the Universal Laws.

 

I believe every living creatures on this planet have feelings and emotions, no questions about it. 
 
One day I will move to live in Provence to be closer to my family, and of course all my Hermann tortoises will come along. South of France will be lovely for them and they will be closer to their natural land and climate.
