Hi

Just got back from collecting a Horsfield tortoise. Its a Christmas present for my g/f. She has already named it Colville. Its downstairs at the moment having a wander around. I'm sure she will be on here asking lots of questions now so everyone get prepared lol.

Cheers

Sammo

No she has used my middle name to name him. We were wondering how long his nails should grow?

It's hard to say, they don't need doing often some not at all, if you pick the tort up a lot and get scratched,I would buy some of the safety clippers, too just take the point off, be very careful though, I wouldn't do it with ordinary scissors
