Hi all, I have been monitoring this forum for the past couple of weeks. Find out about it from Google when searching for Hermann tortoise information as such, and it was this forum that seemed to keep popping up!

My name is Ty (middle name is liam). I've been researching the Hermann tortoise for the last few weeks and have finally decided that I want to add an addition to our family.

I currently have most of the set up... Set up (almost). And in the next week, il be hoping to find a breeder. I have been searching for the past week and I've had no luck unfortunately. So il be making another Topic, in the breeder section and hopefully have some luck there!

I'm based in Grimsby, North East Lincolnshire.

Hi TY :excited:

Welcome to the forum.

 

I know of a breeder in Boston, if that's any help to you. I've had one of her hatchlings, so I can personally recommend her. :)
