A couple of years ago one of my Hermanns escaped. He was about 3 at the time. We think somebody found him and took him across to the Isle of Wight (I live on the South coast). From there a little girl found him wondering down a street and gave him to a tortoise owner she knew. The lady couldn't look after him because he was so ill and so sent him back to the main land, to her friend who worked with Marwell Zoo and had lots of tortoises. She took him to the vets who scanned him and discovered he belonged to me. This whole process took about 18months for me to get him back but it just shows you can never give up hope because you don't know where your tort will turn up. Best of luck, he's probably playing hide and seek ;)

Hi Jadums,

That's an amazing story! Did your tort recover from the illness and is he OK now? What a remarkable journey he had.

Yes he's fine now. He had badly chipped the back of his shell somehow and still has the fibre glass on it. Although it was about 3 or 4 years ago now he has still only put on 100g compared to my other tort who has shot ahead in size. However, he is eating well and has no other health problems. ;) hardy little creatures :D

Oh, that's lovely. He's obviously a real survivor!

Hi.

Still no news on Godzilla, unfortunately.:D Not given up hope yet though. You'll be the first to know if I find her!;)

Hi again,

We've got posters up already, on lamposts and in the vets and the post office etc. Just stopped short of sticking them on neighbourhood children! Just reread the posts, and saw JMS's post about spraying the earth with water. What would that do? I'm willing to give anything a try, but I need to know what I'm looking for when I do it. Will she come out to drink, or come out because her 'bed' is getting wet? Thanks.

Beth and franklin xxx
