Just wondering what other speices of tortoises or turtles are kept by the members on here?
I keep Ibera and have done for over 30yrs, I also used to breed graecas, but as I am getting older, I decided to down size. And the graecas have nearly all gone, I have just a few juveniles left, hard to let go when you have bred them yourself. I also keep box turtles.

Hi Sandy,

Just Hermann torts at our house. biggrin.gif
We dont have enough space to house different species seperately so shall stick to the one type and hopefully be able to S-Q-U-E-E-Z-E in an extra couple of little chaps when we can confirm the sexes of the ones we have now!

I breed hermanni boettgeri and horsfields. Used to have leopards but due to not being able to upgrade on land, had to let them go to a fantastic home with acres of ground. It was the saddest thing I have ever done and I could have easily kept them here, but had to take the opportunity of such a fantastic offer for them.

I have some Testudo Hermanni Hermanni tortoises and I don't keep any others. Some keepers get keen and branch out into other species, I got keen and obtained more of the same! I do admire other tortoises such as the Stars and Diamondback Terrapins but I'm doing my best to try and get things right for the smaller hermann.

If I get any more tortoises in the future, it just might be another one or two of these!
